More Mymbyr Info

Well here is the missing piece of the puzzle, the rest of the locations for the Mymbyr bouldering I know of.
This Link has your starters and basic approach, The Mighty 'Tashe is to the left of the stream and visible below the highball slab (this looked about F6a+ last visit but I've yet to fully commit). To the left of this is the boulders in the photo's above:
A) The sentinel boulder, start of the upper boulder field and just in front of Man Like Me.
B) Is Big Bad Bari at the top of the boulder field
C) The Quack Crack boulder, 30m further on from the Mighty 'Tashe.

Let me know what you think.

Big Bad Bari Lives & Giveaway Project of The Month - April

Here he is. One session cleaning, one flabby session working and Today...
I managed to get up it. It seems that 4 consecutive days route setting at the Beacon, and a minor nod to improving my flexibility, is enough to make the difference. I warmed up on the top out, then linked from the chockstone into this. Then it was time to ride the Rig...

Big Bad Bari Font 6C+ish
Start from a hand fist stack at the obvious constriction at the back of the crack, invert and shuffle to the chockstone, swing round on undercut jams and yard up to the top.

The Boulder itself is also Big, Bad and home to Bari. This Months giveaway is the compression, slopey slappy thing that rears out from below Bari. It will be hard. It should also be very good. Get it touch for details.
