Best Routes @ Swinburne

Postby nicolaasdekker » Mon Dec 13, 2010 8:18 pm


Popping in at Swinburne on my way past to see what the hype is about.
I lead up to 19 max, any recommendations for routes? I only have about half of every day for 2 days to climb.

If you've got enough time for a 7-pitch route, you can't miss Long Bolt to Freedom. Crux pitch is 23 but can be aided at 17 (3 bolts really close together at the crux). That makes it 17, 12, 17, 16, 15, 15, 7.

For single pitch, Lost Arrow (18), Sticky Weekends (19) and Starlings (17), all at the Spearhead Boulder, are excellent.

Enjoy! :thumleft:

The pyramid boulder has about 6 routes 19 and below. Beautiful views, etc, hot on a windless day, so start early.
I can't find the online route guide anymore - I have a pdf copy of the latest route guide if you want to pm me...
C ya,

If you up for an early start give Long bolt to freedom a bash! :thumleft:
