Cheers Neil,
Yes, Matt did put up a couple of lines there; one of which I can identify, the other one not so sure (and being 20 odd years ago, understandably his memory is bit vague).

Quote, M9:
"I and others established at a 'scrappy' location near Talong NSW, have since been safety-ised with bolts and claimed as first ascents by others!
I will be further amused if others come along later and miff those involved by further safety-ising 'their' routes, and possibly renaming them with the new lower standard of the day!! "

Actually - this is the reason why I started this small project / discussion.
Iskra Crag was getting very obscure, but has received some more attention lately.

Looked like there were some good routes up there, and it was only a matter of time before climbers started repeating and retrobolting things. At least with some basic topos and descriptions, existing climbs can be 'protected', and new lines can be found without stressing about whether it was done before. Now all they need are some repeats. :-)
