Hi 

I couldn't find the new routes 2020 page so I thought I'd create one. 

New route at Thylacine Buttress, Dog Leg Bend, North West Bay River.

*Barking Mad 24 20m 9 Bolts 

Start 4m Left of Wile E. Coyote. Chin up on the jug to clip the first bolt or stick clip. Funky moves lead to easy ground. Power up the sustained headwall and exit to the right. DBB.

FA: Tom Fulton, Pat Eberhard. May 2020

  1. An apparently overlooked line at Island Zawn. Hard to believe a little gem like this hasn't been done but it's not in the guide and judging by some very rattly flakes we knocked out of the crack we are pretty sure it is an FA. Please update if this is incorrect.

    Cruiciverbalisation 20m (21)**

    Access: Rap to hanging belay at the base of bottomless corner, 3m left of Swash.

    Up initial corner, traverse right under the roof and pull into splitter crack bisecting the face. Thin jamming leads to a short technical corner to finish.

    FA: Danny Hazell, Chris Arvier July 2020

    I have also bumped up the status of Swash to 3 stars. Been climbing at Freycinet for almost 10 years and I reckon this is up there with the very best mid-grade routes on the granite. Clean, sustained laybacking up an incredible corner. It seems to get almost no traffic but it deserves some love.
