Alpha Leather

A little gem of a route. Only 12 meters but packs a punch.

Bolted by Mike Law in the early 90’s and went through various versions (chips, glue and jazz) but finally settled in at 32 with Garth Miller claiming the first ascent in 1999.

It is two V8’ish boulders separated by a jug in the middle.

These days a few new school tricks have been found for the end boulder so most consider the first boulder the business.

If you are in the Blue Mountains and you are into hard sport climbing, you gotta do it!

On a side note. It is kinda hard to film a super gnarly route when you have an A4 injury 🤣
