Does anyone know if there has been a 2nd ascent on Paul's route Ekin at Swinburne? I think it is on Boulder B at the Long Tonk boulder area.

Sweet little swopping diagonal. Start off the blocks unless you can boulder the start. Conservatively graded cos I bolted it just after a long lay off from climbing. Somewhere between 27-30 though! :D

I wanted it climb that one last time I was down there but ran out of time. If I go down this year, I'll certainly get on it. Also wanna get on that project next to Swordfish and Andrew has a project next to Maelstrom on the Tempest Wall which is thin pockets the whole way. Those look like the last good ones that I've seen... There is also that Fountain Project up there...
I hate this real world place... I'd be more than happy to live out there rather...
