Thanks Joe for posting my photos. /dig

Mikl, are you referring to the long water streak on the right of the first photo? The topo in the guide indicates N.O. goes up the LHS of the "main" buttress, which isn't an obvious line. The water streak looks pretty good by comparison.

Superstu, the second photo shows a clean slab to the left of the photo .. this is where most of the Mackey's routes appear to be. Pic 3 is a closeup. It may look small in the picture but I think is 3 pitches worth and would have some great routes on it, up to 21.

This is N.O. ?

Yes the waterstreak is the main part of Noblesse Oblige. I,m not sure what happens at the top of the waterstreak; I think there are a couple of pitches still from there. My main memory is of padding out a length of rope to a "belay" from slings around knobs. And then doing it again. Not hard but don't fall.
My slab with my old climb Indelible Shuffle is almost out of shot at the top, just left of centre. That slab is only about 70 metres high.

Thanks for taking and posting the pics gfdonc/jgoding, and it is good to see the old/er areas getting attention again.

... also interesting to see the change of rock angle from different perspectives.
