    Hay all,

    Spent the arvo at Mountain Quorry noticed there was a new root about 20m to the south of the Play boy wall with all new rings (yay) was a sweet climb would just like to know what ‘grade’ it is and if I did it right the 4th bold was a little off route it seemed. if anyone knows that would be sweet.
    I can’t get the link to pics to work but hook me up on FB to see.

    Cheers,

    PS if you haven’t done it you will know when you do. As you fill your dacks on the 3rd bolt.

    Hi there, the route is called ‘Playmate’ grade 22, there’s also a variant ‘Playmate direct’ grade 21 which goes under the roof between the 2nd and 3rd bolt. See the forum post in ‘First Ascents’ made a couple of months back.

    You need a 60cm sling on the 4th bolt to reduce rope drag. Although it appears as if the 4th bolt is not required in such an easy position, the reason I put it there was because if you fall before clipping the 5th bolt it will prevent you from having a massive tumbling winger!

    Glad you like it 🙂
