Three new routes were completed at The Heights today. First off Kevin completed his project Solution One grade 17, a fun slabby climb with an interesting start getting easier by height. Rod then, after 15 or so attempts finally completed 93 Memorable Years, grade 19 which has one hard reachy move in the middle. Finally to finish the day Rod summitted The Hollow Chocolate Bunnies of the Apocolypse grade 18, which had some fun committing moves.

It remains unnamed. Thanks to Andrew Scott for the info.
28th January 2004
Elliot visited Mt K today to attempt his project on Moto Cross Wall. Having just returned from a succesful campaign on NZ limestone, hopes were high that it would get a send, but unfortunately the crimpy crux moves had other ideas. Luke Atkinson was not denied on his new trad route 5 metres to the left of Elliot's project and put up Guns, Germs and Steel, graded 15.
18th January 2004
An ambitious line was bolted by Josh at The Heights, to the right of BullAnt Wall, coming up he right side of the cave following the lip, it should make a nice addition top the crag. Rod top roped another possible line before it was time to call it a day.

28th September 2003
Vanessa started the day trying out her new project on Moto Cross Wall but failing at the crux. Three new lines were also bolted on Moto Cross Wall. A new wall was scoped out down the hill which could yield a few more lines. Approx 20 metres high on solid orange rock the new wall Far Away Wall should yield a few classics.

Vanessa bolted a hard project on Moto Cross wall before it started raining. After waiting around for an hour for the rain to cease, two more lines were top roped before calling it a day.
14th September 2003
The day started with a quick ascent of Vanessa's project on Fossil Wall, Legoland Grade 16. A nice amble up an obvious line on the right hand side of the wall. Rod then attempted to lay siege to his project next to it, with several attempts failing on the last move. Vanessa, jumped on to route and stepped left at the third bolt onto Legoland for a worth while variant called Elbow Abrasions Grade 16. The rest of the day was spent at Moto Cross wall top roping a few new lines, which will probably be bolted next visit. The new climbs have been added to the guide book on this site.
