    There are two routes that are seemingly incorrect in the 2002 WA Rock Guide. The first is Mixed Grill which is indicated in the topo and description as going up the crag, whereas the bolts that are evident provide a rising leftward traverse under and lip of and then above the lip of the cave. The second is Burswood Road located right of Lovers Nuts, but there is no sign of any bolts. Does anyone have any information on either of these discrepancies?

    I think Burswood Rd is a trad route.
    Dena, you’ve done Burswood Rd?

    I’ve done Mixed Grill. It is indeed wrong in the guide. The first pitch goes up and leftwards along the lip of the cave, with crux being the move above the lip to the first anchor. The second pitch continues up and left. It is at least a 20m rap from the final anchors to reach ground, and is worth two stars in my opinion. Grade 22 is right…. but it is pretty sustained. Second pitch is particularly sharp, and there is a bird’s nest in one of the caves, which should not be removed, or climbed if the bird is nesting.

    Thanks guys Dena if you have done Burswood Road info would be great and if it is trad are there lower offs?

    Chris cheers for the info, that is my recollection of the route too. I did it almost 10 years back now and also remember that place where the birds nest was.

    I just led Burswood Rd a few weeks ago. It’s fully bolted though I’m not sure how I feel about the lower offs. I can’t remember how many bolts it has though.
