For the majority of climbers who do not practice new routing as a matter of course, it is easy to become a little over-obsessed with 'colouring in the guidebook.' To put it more plainly, in ticking off all of the neatly labelled, graded and rated climbs about which guidebooks inform us. One of the many joys of deep water soloing, particularly in this part of the world is that it encourages a great deal more creativity than we maybe are used to. The route of a climb and indeed the destination is often less rigid, with climbers simply picking the most appealing looking route and jumping into the water not at a pre-ordained finish, but rather when height or personal temperament suggests it prudent.
