Charlie... were going to Candy Mountain!

It seems like North Black is going through a bit of a renaisance at the moment. The Vines were found and developed just weeks ago, someone has been re-cleaning an old lost sector called Area 51 and bringing it back to life, and we have just found and half developed a brand new sector called Candy Mountain.
Candy Mountain will have about 30+ problems in to v0 to v-friggin hard category so there is something for everyone.
A proper track has been made in to the sector and we are thinking of doing a workshop day out there to clean proper tracks to all the areas at North Black soon to make things a bit neater out there. Watch this space.
Also, there has been alot of talk of re doing all the Canberra bouldering guides (mostly done by Chris Warner) into a new and comprehensive guide to the blocs in the Canberra region, so again, watch this space for more info.
Here are some pics from the last few weeks, hope they tickle your fancy :)
