Foreplay (posted 2018/07/12)

Rolf Rybak has added a bolt (red hanger) so that you can cut across right at the 4th bolt of No Foreplay for Grumpa to join It’s a Nice,Tight Fit, which is then followed to the anchor of Start Me Up (3 more bolts) for a nice 11b/c. (And as Rick Leslie pointed out, you could also start up It’s a Nice,Tight Fit, join No Foreplay for Grumpa and finish up No Foreplay Needed and experience the cruxes of all three of these routes (11d, 11d, 13a).

Anna’s Laugh 12a, 8 bolts 17m. L of Always a Pleasure……  Follow crack/seam to roof, then R to corner feature. Tom Freebairn 2018/06.

Reilly Rock (posted 2018/05/20).

Boomerang 10a, 9 bolts 20m. Starts at the large undercut crack between Blinded by the Light and Pug. Enter this (crux) and follow it until you can break out onto the face on the right at the 4th bolt. Mostly easy climbing above except for a short but well protected section where the face steepens. Jon Jones 2018/05/18.

A Short Grunt to Nowhere 10b, 5 bolts 12m. Start as for Dancing in the Shade. At the second bolt climb directly up and over the small overhang. Easy climbing above leads to the anchor. Jon Jones 2018/08/15.
