Thanks for the feedback.
Iím glad you enjoy the place, as although itís been a while since I was last there, I remember it fondly.
A mate and I developed it inasmuch as anything natural line there (including highball bouldering), under grade 22 we led.
The proudest line is straight up the face of a sharkfin style pseudo-detached pinnacle, located well up the slope and kind of left of centre of Pine Rocks, as approaching from directly below.
The long low wall that is mostly overhung and located higher and rightward of that pinnacle has a couple of natural breach points in it and although short, provided enjoyable and engaging climbing too.

Another enduring memory is nearly being zapped by lightning at the back of that pinnacle while descending / taking shelter from heavy rain in a storm ...

Thereís been a number of local climbers frequent the place over the intervening years, however to my knowledge itís still bolt free on the climbs, though when I was last there I noticed a couple at the top of another stand alone pinnacle lower down to the fire trail access road. I assume that they were placed by abseilers.

No worries.

Was a nice spot, I'm too numpty to get up 22s. Didn't see any bolts but will be heading out tomorrow for a more in depth look around the area so I'll keep an eye out for bolts but the place looked pretty unused.
