Let The Season Begin!

Cooler weather has arrived and Nowra is is prime form. Unfortunately, the mozzies haven't been told yet and it'll take a week or so for the little buggers to die off after they've enjoyed a very damp, warm Summer breeding season. Bring the bug spray!

Yesterday, Jarmilla Tyrril sent Dungeon Master 31 at South Central, setting a new standard for female climbers at Nowra. This route has cost Jarmilla dearly as she had a rope, quickdraws and chalk bag stolen from the base of the route last week after she went around to Cheesedale to belay Zac. The rope is a light green and dark green, flecked Sterling 9.4mm, quickdraws are Petzl Spirits and the chalk bag is a Beal one. Keep an eye out for them. I think the culprits are more likely to be local kids, it would very sad if a climber is responsible for this.

On Sunday, Ryan Holmes ticked his first 30, snaring the coveted scalp of Aloha Paradise at Rosies. Ryan had to work out some very specific hold beta to control the big swing at the end of the crux sequence. And on the previous day, serial sender, Matt Norgrove completed the link-up that includes the hardest sections of two 30s. Non-Dairy Monster starts up Cheesemonster then joins Non-Dairy Cheese-Like Substitute weighing in at 31.

Some plastic crushers have finding their feet on the lovely Nowra stone. Loesje Fletcher, Lindsay Fletcher, Joshua Boyce and Niranda Wright ticked off Uncertainty Pleasure 22 in the little cave at Cheesedale while visiting Victorian, Louis Godsell, smashed Wham Bam Thank You Maam 24.
