Breeze Bay West

(7 routes)

Breeze Bay West is the small buttress just east of the second(?) gully. Descent from the crag top is by abseil or via the gully on the western side. A long sling around the top block(s) provides most routes with a top belay.

Up the shallow groove on good holds (but little pro) to the crack. Place pro, pull through, walk off.

Take the wall right of the shallow goove to the horizontal slot (thread?) then to the loose block. Stabilise this with some pro before mantling onto it. Gain the alcove then up.

The most obvious natural line of the crag. Place gear in the crack and crank through to the offwidth slot to recover. Bridge/jam up the crack (good pro higher) to the jumble above.

Edge up onto the small ramp on the wall right of RF using the recess on the wall, then reach carefully up onto the arete for a rounded pinch/lay away. Grapple your way up on more rounded holds to easy ground. A bolt would make this leadable.

On the wall facing the harbour is a ledge about 2m up with roofs above and crumbly crud below. About three metres in from the left end of the undercut it is possible to gain the wall above. Place a nest of wires around a block, then pull up and right to a stance. From here, bridge left a little then go straight up using a series of rounded holds. Bolts required.

Start as for HL but move right from the stance and continue on a rightward trend following the holds and reasonable pro. At the left-leaning crack head left and up to anchors. Major earthworks may result in a direct start which is likely to be very strenuous.
