Malignant  Sucess!

Climbed this and Wicked Wanda in a day, maybe a common outing? We found Malignant to be very featured, with numerous large caves, good, fun, technical climbing and solid pro. WI5-?

Neither  Sucess!

Climbed Wicked Wanda (WI4+) in the morning and Malignant around lunch time with Graham. WW was really cool, with the overhanging, mushroomed second pitch (my lead) being highly technical and brittle. Hardest route at this grade I've climbed this season. MM was much, much easier, no where near being a real Grade 5. Graham placed six screws on the pitch, not one of which was much good. A nice, easy day.

Fun route. Don't climb it on hot, sunny days, your screws will be useless and you will be wet. Can use this climb to access Aquarius and then the Recital Hall for a good long day.

Re: Malignant

Steve, you are thinking of Sunshine, WI 3 to reach Recital Hall.

Nice route, was quite a bit thinner than those pics when we did it. Very featureful and there were a lot of rests.

Nice true vertical piece in solid condition on this date. TAKE 60 METER ROPES, NOT 50 AS THE GUIDE BOOK SUGGESTS. That Phantom Crag, aka the Devils Fang looks awesome. Will be back to explore that in the summer. Wicked Wanda looks to be in much better shape than any photos I have seen. Cheers.
