A fingery start then good climbing. The bolt has been replaced. Stick clip or start up Claw and lower back down. Better still, just ignore the bouldery start and keep going. it's a much more consistent 23. Take your time to look for small cams above the bolt before going left and up - adequate gear is possible. Chains just below the top.
Start: Start 1 metre left of the prominent crack of Claw.
- Ethic: inherited from Arapiles
Mount Arapiles is first and foremost a trad climbing area. The few sport climbs tend to be in the higher grades where no natural pro is available.
Bolting, particularly retro-bolting, is discouraged and should only be undertaken after extensive consultation with the local climbers, first ascensionists, etc. Inappropriately placed bolts have been chopped.
Do not chip the rock.
Look after the park.
Stick to the paths.
Don't disturb the wildlife.
Routes near peregrine falcon nesting sites are closed in the spring.
Minimise the impact of your camping (fuel stoves not fires, take your rubbish with you, etc).
