No, this isn't a joke...

Average Rating = 3.00/5 No, this isn't a joke...

You know how they say, "double up your protection for the crux"!? Well, for Hamish, on Crack Of Delight (19), the crux started off the ground, and never really stopped. 5 cams place within 1m of each other while on lead and no more than 4m off the deck. First time in a real crack, so we cut him a little slack, and didn't make too much fun of his pro-technique. Photo by Robo555

Jamming my way up The Spies Are Out (20)

Average Rating = 3.00/5 Jamming my way up The Spies Are Out (20)

Chances are, I was sizing up the thin crack with the loose block as my top out at this point. I ended up wussing out and exiting lower and right over the ledge. Photo by Chris B.

A Little Vibrator is better than it looks

Average Rating = 3.00/5 A Little Vibrator is better than it looks

...or at least this one is. Not an easy route to protect, but it is there if you are ballsy enough to keep looking for it. The vegetation doesn't really help much either.

Average Rating = 0.00/5 socialclimber, happy for the sun on Diploma

Otepatotu is definitely not a winter crag! Though we did manage to get on one of the few routes that gets any sun at all (for about 1/2 hour).

robo555 placing his first gear ever on Moonshine

Average Rating = 3.33/5 robo555 placing his first gear ever on Moonshine

A pretty good route to learn trad climbing on, at 15 and with plenty of cracks. Gets rather daunting and takes some placement finding skills at the top though. Photo by socialclimber

...but also a very quality route. Recommended for any climber that climbs 14 or above. Tons of great placements on great rock.

socialclimber belaying on Hellfire And Damnation

Average Rating = 2.50/5 socialclimber belaying on Hellfire And Damnation

If you can't tell by him all bundled up below, it had gotten quite cool and breezy by this point in the day. Kind of a bad photo of the route, but this was taken while on the sharp end of a first ascent flash (okay.....I know...it was 'only' a 16....).

social climber seconding Hellfire And Damnation

Average Rating = 0.00/5 social climber seconding Hellfire And Damnation

No, he's not catching flies, it was quite windy and hard to hear. Hopefully, someday, we will get a good photo of this route, but it isn't likely. That is one heck of a drop-off below.

socialclimber headed up Bitterfingers

Average Rating = 2.50/5 socialclimber headed up Bitterfingers

After the next placement, he missed the following 3, making for a very serious runout. Turns out, the gear is actually pretty good if you look for it.

doogle pulling the roof

Average Rating = 3.50/5 doogle pulling the roof

The roof on Shortcut To Mushrooms spanked me hard, but doogle just pulled right on through. The half-smile on his face can only mean he just set the jam above the chockstone.

So, where's that jug?

Average Rating = 3.25/5 So, where's that jug?

socialclimber looking.... Now that the hard part is over, the fun can begin. When Hell Froze Over starts with a bouldery start, and then offers some awesome jugs for the midsection. Photo by Daniel

You'll take the High Road, and I'll....

Average Rating = 2.80/5 You'll take the High Road, and I'll....

Too bad I have such a stupid expression on my face. This is the solid stance after the crux of High Road. Do not go left to get to this bolt. Straight is the way to go. The holds are there...if you look close enough.

Theres still another 30/45 minutes of bush-bashing and rock hopping to do to get to the base of the crag. On the arete at the longest point of the crag is the three star classic "White Wizard", 22.
