Adrian Walter's got his SPA assessment this weekend & he wanted to get a route in & myself, I'd eyed up a good looking route on the Assagai Wall which stood out last time I was there, when I climbed Moondance on the Main Wall.
Adrian leading Barrier Reef at Trowbarrow
Adrian did a good job leading Barrier Reef & then top roped Coral Sea VS. I headed over to have a look at 'A Sense of Doubt' which takes an impressive line up the centre of the blank looking Assagai Wall. It's fantastic steep face climbing on tiny crimps & vague footholds, with some powerful but very delicate balancy moves linking the whole route together. It's just great climbing & a totally absorbing pitch which I was super stoked to On-Sight today.
