    New route in Mountain Quarry. Do it in the morning when it is in the shade, and then try On Edge above (re-bolted by others).

    Adventure Line (30m, 17)
    Start just R of Psychopath. Trend right past 5 FHs (crux), then trad climb up the corner above (gr.12). Just before top of corner traverse R onto face and up to lower-offs just below the arête of On Edge. Cams up to #0.75 Camalot, nuts all sizes. 5 FH, then trad gear. FA: Ross Weiter, Dena Rao, Nov 2016.

    Oh dear. What happened?

    Nothing much. The fifth clip had me entertained as I couldn’t reach it from the foothold. Eventually I worked out to grab a side pull and smear on a slippery bulge of joy to clip. Apart from that, not much. I like your other stuff much more than this one. I’m sure others will enjoy it.

    Yeah Dena commented on that 5th clip also. I will move that bolt a bit lower. Soonish.

    There now is another bolt under the last one. It’s a bit OTT but oh well. If you want to get scared do Psychopath.

    Did this yesterday; it was a pleasant route. It makes a good warm-up/access for On Edge immediately above the loweroffs, which (it turns out) is an excellent little route.
