4 out of 5 stars A good well protected lead

An excellent climb, generally straightforward corner and face climbing but with a crux move that felt pretty stiff for 5.5. It is long, maybe 55m, so you will need 2 ropes to get off it. The belay is a bit of a horror - 3 bolts with rusting cold shuts, all spinners. I backed them up when lowering off my seconds, and rapped carefully - they were fine, but are crying out for replacement.

3 out of 5 stars Tough climb

Grading is odd at Tonsai - this is well sandbagged at 6a, and is not a good beginner's lead as the start is overhung with a bad landing. The start is more intimidating than very hard - but the crux involved some pretty tricky stemming for me and would be harder for short people. A good 10b. Don't do it in the sun! Afternoon climb...

3 out of 5 stars Another good easy climb

Straight up and then veer right around the shield-shaped steep bit. Chock Dee goes to the left around the shield and is a little harder.

5 out of 5 stars Bit of a classic

second time I've done it, would be happy to do it each time I visit - as long as I can do it when there are no people there...

2 out of 5 stars tick...

Would be more fun without the crowds. Pumpy start then easy.

3 out of 5 stars Good climb

Quite a scary start - juggy, but overhanging and with ground fall potential on the second clip. I heard a new leader had fallen here a few weeks back and broke her ankles... focuses the mind. The rest of the climb up the tunnel is fun and well protected. The top pitch was soaking so we didn't do it - probably only dry in the dry season.

4 out of 5 stars Great climb.

Most fun climb I've done for a long time. Aesthetically pleasing, great views, fun moves, huge megajugs where you want them, well protected, steep enough to be interesting, and much softer than its grade suggested. I struggled on a lot of Tonsai 6a's and this felt a lot easier - no more than 5.8.
