Go to Australia.
Go back to Wellington 2.
Went back to Freycinet Peninsula and climbed a 4-pitch line called Stud City
(19) on the Hazards Wall in somewhat worrisome weather. Hard and slick pitch 3 with some poor gear right above the small-gear belay – bit stressful. Also, a lichen-covered slab traverse atop pitch 2 where Shirley’s foot blew and she went for a nice (clean) penji. Still, cool position above the crashing waves.

Leading pitch 2 of Stud City – good crack climbing to an undercling flake to a short (but lichen covered) slab section (Jan. 2015).

Looking back at Shirley from just above the crux of the route on the highly invigorating pitch 3 of Stud City. An OK gear anchor followed by slick and unprotectable water groove (harder than it looked from the belay).
