Cracking up at Frog Buttress

After a week in Brisbane trying to buy a car, climbing for a day at Kangaroo Point, sightseeing and staying at an ex-colleague of Jo's and new friends of ours we eventually hit the road in our 1988 Ford Falcon Station Wagon. The hour and a bit drive went well 'till we arrived in the car park at the top of Mt French and steam poured out of the bonnet. eek!

Ignoring this we have spent five excellent days climbing at the sunny crack climbing capital of Australia. Even Jo enjoyed the cracks after tapping up her hands! The classic four star routes were much enjoyed, although having a few more cams would have been nice. One climber claimed to have about 100, we have 9. Still its not how big your rack is, but what you do with it. And when at Frog, I leap frogged my gear up with me.

We are now down at Byron Bay and will be heading north. Time to go surfing...

Photos for this post will be added when I can be bothered. Tick:-)

On the excellent Gladiator 18** (which has nut placements for a change)

Me around the crux of C...**** 21 and a kiwi on Devils Dihedral ****20.
