Beautiful winter conditions, steep, steep rock and my favorite lap route.
Antoine is on belay for this lap at the "Coolum Sendfest" 2010.

"Evil Wears No Pants" 8a+ (30) Project

Such a lot of hard moves all stacked on top of each other.
73 shots got me to the point of linking all the moves from the hang start to the top.
Now the hard work of getting off the ground begins.
My money is on 150 shots.

Rock in the suburbs

"Spoonman" 28.
Six moves into the eight move sequence of the crux traverse, up with the right then out with the left to the horn and clip R.
Then follows a tough slog to the final heart breaker, a long lunge off the left with high feet.
Trying to convert the drive from the high feet into lift after all that hard work is the clincher.
