The Buzzzzz at Radioactive

Postby Ringo » Mon Feb 09, 2009 1:03 pm

Decided to find the Hiroshima crag at Radioactive this weekend. After bushwacking, trailblazing & a bit a "gardening" the crag now has an access path (Sort of :wink: ). The routes haven't been climbed in quite a while so they very dusty, with cob webs etc. There are loads of bramble bushes at the crag, so take something you can cut a few back with.

A word of warning though!! Anyone that is thinking of climbing Radioactive Isotopes 15/16 should be made aware that there are 2 huge Paper Wasp nests in the 2 prominent flakes you would use to climb this route.

BTW Paper Wasps are the big bad brother, about +- 4 to 5 cm long (Mutated from the radioactivity I'm guessing.... :lol: ), of the smaller wasps you usually find on some routes. From what I've read, these bad boys will send up to a 100 wasps out to sting the living sh%t out of you!! So be warned!!

Needless to say I backed off this climb....... :(
