    These four gym-like sport routes are between Dirty Deeds and Gathering the Bones and are easily spotted among the carrots by ringbolts. I also placed lower-offs on top of the Skin Tight corner, which is good for a warm-up. The five routes are fully in the shade until 11:30am.

    The gate is normally open from 7am to 5pm, except on days of extreme fire danger when it is closed, but even then it is not locked (so people can get out, and emergency vehicles in). The walk in from the gate is 20 min; from the car park 6 min. Climbs are described from L to R.

    ** Undertow (25m, 23)
    This ring-bolted route just R of Dirty Deeds is slightly easier than Tantrum. The short crux requires strange and memorable moves. 8 bolts. FA: Ross Weiter, Peter Thomas, Jan 2014.

    *** Tantrum (25m, 23)
    Just R of Undertow, this bulging route is just awesome! The hard moves 2/3rds of the way up can be overcome by a quick series of low percentage moves. The convoluted crux will be hard to onsight if not chalked up. 9 ring bolts to lower-offs. FA: Ross Weiter, Peter Thomas, Jan 2014.

    ** Incinerator (25m, 21)
    Enjoyable gym-like climbing on large holds, with some unusual body positions and a very long final move to get to the anchors (crux, gr. 20 if you are over 6ft tall). 8 ringbolts to lower-offs.

    ** Burn! (22m, 22)
    3m uphill from Incinerator. Getting off the ground is tricky but there are many other chances to come unstuck on this sustained and sequency route. It gets easier higher up but the pump might still get you. 7 rings to lower-offs. FA: Ross Weiter, Peter Thomas, Angela Separovic, Nov 2012.
