    Two new routes at Wellington Dam quarry

    Victim Of Authority 18m 19*
    The line right of ‘Raging Torent’ in the centre of Main Wall which trends right at the third bolt. A nice route finding mission with a few committing moves (5RB to DBB). Jonas Hollingworth – Jan 14

    Lord Of The Flies 12m 23**
    Start behind the fence left of a thin tree at the right end of the chossy wall between Left Slab and Left Wall. Whilst the rock all around looks terrible, this route features some good moves on solid rock with a tricky crux sequence at the top (4RB to DBB). Jonas Hollingworth – Jan 14

    A local climber thought that LOTF was a grade 21 but comparing it to other 21’s, 22’s and 23’s around WA I’m not so convinced and think a 21 would be a bit sandbagged. It took me a few tries to get the crux although my crimp strength is not the best, however maybe I missed an easier way. If you climb it please let me know what you think of the grades (and stars).
