Thanks for the article and kief pics! I would love to go out there to confirm the grade and all that, but judging by the pictures it doesn't quite look like my style of climbing :cyclops:

Looks rad... I love how he makes it sound like a 20, but then says, 'this move feels about font 8a', ouch....

Ya well done Steve, looks like a pretty aesthetic line, I must try find some time to try it over coming months... it would be great to see a capie take a weekend off Rocklands and try it, looks pretty bouldery - any takers..Marijus?

Hear hear!! Andrew, I agree. Marijus: you're SA's strongest climber, by far! it'll be rad! 8A is so well within your capability you'll cruize that line!
