Off you go, then. Make sure you post up a trip report. Photos or it didn't happen.
Oh, and better make sure you take a PLB.

euce seems to be taking this seriously so here's some from around Adelaide to boost the SA list. The unsolicited opinions are mine. BTW I'd remove Hangover Layback from the original post as it's a few metres of traversing in 100m of climbing.

Swoop 18m 20 (Devil's Nose)
Good climbing on good rock following horizontal breaks.

* Zontal Horror 32m 20 (Raetjen's Gap)
The natural line across Top Cliff, includes a couple of horizontal offwidth moves with poor feet.

Madam I'm Adam 20m 19 (Raetjen's Gap)
Another natural line following cracks. Exciting when you come screaming off and pop a block.

The Scenic 150m 16 (Morialta)
A joke traverse but moments of good climbing nonetheless. We did this over 2 days.

Royal Flush 39m 16 (Morialta)
A fair bit of sus rock.

Yuppies in the Gym 63m 22 (Morialta)
Make sure you do it on a busy day.

Pedestrian Rule 50m 24 sport (Norton Summit)
Would get few, if any, repeats except for the bit above The Left Wing as part of Run Every Red Light.

* Corkscrew 55m 13 (Elephant Rock)
Fun, but don't fall into the blackberries.

Merciless 15m 25 sport (Car Crash Quarry)
I still think this could be 26.

Stocking Tops 210m 14 (Onkaparinga)
Like The Scenic, for no good reason except that it's there.

** Waterloo 60m 14 (Onkaparinga)
A fun low solo usually above water.

Like Dogs Gone Mad 20m 13 (Onkaparinga)
Ended up in the river thanks to a broken hold.

She-Almost-Didn't-Do-It 15m 16 (Backslapper's Wall)
DWS, harmless fun.

* Wet & Wild 40m 21 sport (Granite Island)
Looks good, need a calm day.

* In To Deep 20m 22 (Granite Island)
Reputedly good.

* Waddle of the Duck 40m 15 (The Bluff)
Originally a Col Reece grade 13, this natural line will test anyone, especially your second.

*** Flight of the Gull - Down to the Sea in Slips - A Good Line 268m 18 (Waitpinga) Classic link-up traverse.

I can't figure out where this is supposed to start/go? Eurydice's second belay (= end of pitch 2?), is level with the Bard Terrace, not the end of the traverse pitch? Or is it traversing in from the bottom of Ails and above Redd Tracy anchors?

Thank you for the SA list, prb :)

Some other 'unknowns':
Mt Kaputar
Flying Circus
more TAS?
anything hiding in The Far Side at Arapiles?

You really need to put col Reece's route dorque torque on your list. It is essentially a 20m unprotected traverse of the wall that forms the lip of the roof system that the old KC roof route full torque goes through at moonarie.

Sounds like a spicy lead? Yeh a bit...but spare a thought for the seconder as the first 15m is 30 deg downward traverse with absolutely no gear until you get to full torques lip where you can get a cam right on the lip.

I think it's been lead a few times but only seconded once (by the person who named the route).
