A fun little route - the crux is low. Charge through the burly bulge before settling into the easier but less-protectable corner above.

Quite a nice little route. The crux is low. Charge through the burly bulge before settling into the easier but poorly protected higher section.

I agree. Good rest after initial pumpy crux.

I don't agree. This is a very serious proposition with no gear above a yawning gap in the ledge. Should be HVS 4c

Sorry guys, my comments above apply to 'Battleship Bow' next door. Doh! Botany Bay is a lovely little route

Couple of committing and pumpy first moves,but once that's out of the way there's a rest and gear.
Also much easier climbing above with plenty of gear
