5.10a Sport (7 bolts) 23 metres - Claim-It-All wall (south)

Claim-It-All is one of the furthest crags from the Braesyde parking. It's east facing, so great climbing on cold mornings or hot summer afternoons. Though it is a long hike in, it is a busier crag than you would expect due to it having a large number of high quality moderate grade routes.

Homer's wake is in the centre of the southern section of Claim-It-All. Running from halfway up the cliff face on the left, diagonally down to the ground in the middle of the cliff is a ledge called Broadway. Homer's Wake is the last route on the right off Broadway, just before it bottoms out.

Head up right of the shallow right facing crescent corner. Steeper ground at the top makes for an exciting finish.

Directions:

From the stairs, follow the loop trails in a counter clockwise direction, passing the Elusive Edge, Blazing Buttress, Grassy Glades the Euphorium. Shortly after the Morning Glory wall the main trail heads left. A well beaten trail heads slightly right and downward to Claim-It-All, easily identified by it's red stained cliffs. The wall is split into three sections, south, centre and north. Descents from all routes are by rappel or lowering off the top anchors. Check for anchor wear before considering being lowered off.
