I'd have to say, and I am biased after the 4 hours of thoughtful scrubbing I put in, but its a super nice line...a straight-up face crack, with a crux down low and another at 2/3 height, there's good gear and decent rests but still quite sustained..something like a Quagmire Crack but only harder. A nice test-piece for those who like cracks at 10+, 11-
30m high, bring a single rack with extra small cams, save a 1" cam to protect the last move, which pulls up a juggy overlap to a mantle finish... Who doesn't like a mantle finish?! Rap the route or walk off to climbers right.
And the best thing about it? Its a mere 9 1/2 minute walk from the front end of Murrin parking lot to the base of the route...so there's no reason not to go! You can barely hear the traffic, and there's some wicked afternoon light that filters in thru the trees.
**Approach as per Valley of Shaddai - walk the highway side of the lake til just past Browning Bluff, then a short stiff hike up a narrow trail, past the first shorter crag with a couple of bolted routes, then walk up right to the right side of the next wall,and there you are...9 1/2 minutes!
