More sends at North Black

Seems to be that we are out at North Black every weekend lately! And why not... The weather has been awesome with cold, sunny days and there are so many great problems to do out there!

We started off at the Campground where Ben Fisher made quick work of 'Zac's Arete' v8, the classic of the crag. He hiked it after having worked on it last weekend, making it look easy.

After that we headed to the Hinterland where most of us did 'Pinball' v5 and Russell did really well on the tough and crimpy 'Spinball' v8.
We all then jumped on an amazing v6 at the top of the crag that went through a series of underclings with awesome movement. Ben Fisher sent it, soon followed by Danny Ewald but then one of the main flakes broke off in a huge section and left the other big flakes loose, so we have marked the problem with a big 'X'. Dont climb on it if you go there, it is likely to come of and badly injure someone. Be careful!

Last stop of the day was Dog Rock. Danny and Ross came close-ish to the two undone dyno projects there while I managed to make a quick ascent of 'Doggy Style' v8. We all finished up with a great v4 that climbs through the steep section of the crag then headed off home thoroughly exhausted and keen as mustard for next weekend!

I will try and have some photo's up this week as well.

On a side note, if you live in Canberra come and join us on tuesday and thursday nights training at the new climbing gym in hume, we have a great big crew of us there on those nights and it is proving to be a blast each time :-)

Adios for now!
