Info regarding Rout at Bronkies

Postby DavidWade » Thu Dec 22, 2011 10:58 am

Does any one know the grading of the climb that branches off left of 'ex girlfriends crack' (19) at Bronkies?
Also, who bolted and opened it?

I can't remember his surname but Allan was one of the guys who opened the route left of E-GC. I believe the route is called Angry Dragon in reference to Daryll Margetts after his reaction at being woken up at 5am by route openers who wanted to borrow his drill. It is supposed to be a 21 (if I remember correctly) but the grade is really based on when you decide to break left, lower down I would say 20/21 but breaking left higher up on E-GC makes it easier (climbed it a few times about 4 or 5 years ago so can't remember it that well). I believe the route was originally part of a project that was going to go straight up along its own line, not starting on E-GC and would be great if someone could find a line that links up that route.
