Glenreagh Killowatts
17 Sequential mood

Engaging. Better pro and nicer rock than 'salt'. Two ropes are a good idea for minimising drag and protecting the seconder.

17 Salt

Old school feel. Tricky route finding and was a bit sketchy above the first bolt. Take care to protect the seconder as there are lots of small traverses.

An excellent adventure. A mix of amazing rock and tricky route finding with a few sections of dodgy rock to add spice.

The crack is awesome but it is a bit spicy at the top where the crack ends. The bolt is hidden on a ledge above the crack. One of the better crack routes in the area.

Some really nice moves through pockets but the bolts are hard to clip and the top is a bit sketch.

12 Wollomombi-Chandler Ridge

Climbed the ridge again after 20 years. Still just as intimidating, chossy, vegetated, scary and classic as I remembered. It is as close as you can get to alpine climbing in NNSW. A great adventure for those who appreciate the opposite of sport climbing.

Wollomombi Falls Rap Route

An awesome way of getting to the bottom of the gorge. The chains and bolts seem fine. Another group walked down at the same time and were about half an hour quicker than us rappelling but we had way more fun.
