An enticing line. Climb the crack-line past a small rattly hold - low in the crack - to an awkward exit below the short final wall.

Of the four 4+ climbs here this was the most straight forward. I didn't fall off once.

Just a little harder than next-door Amazonia - and a little deceptive from the ground. The mantleshelf near the top is straightforward with a bit of thought, but there are a couple of earlier moves that are more awkward than the higher 'crux'. A great partner to Amazonia.

P.S. there are parts of this that are starting to move, and loose block you need as a foothold - this route may not remain at this grade for long.

The last couple of moves on the ledges up to the lower off are well above the last bolt - feels a bit run out - you are unlikely to fall off, but it would hurt if you did.

Quite a nice climb, my gf struggled with the slight overhang, but with my longer reach I didn't really notice. I had fun laying back on the first section.

Climbed this last night and there were two loose holds....now there is only one. Pulled of the jug about three metres up. Might affect the grade for people with a short reach. The block near the bottom is ok but not sure for how much longer, very loose.

Climbed this on 5/5/07. Didn't notice the missing jug that Fraser mentioned. I thought the grade was still the same as next-door Amazonia. There were two loose blocks in the corner - both appeared to be jammed in though. One about 3m up, and the other 1m or so below the ledge.

The left U-bolt on the lower-off is a little worn. Still looks perfectly safe to use though.

"The last couple of moves on the ledges up to the lower off are well above the last bolt - feels a bit run out - you are unlikely to fall off, but it would hurt if you did." Er, I was trying to clip into the top bolt, and my cows tail got caught. I fell. It is run out, but it didn't hurt as my belayer did a fab job catching me after falling ten metres. Thanks Julie.
