Description:© (willmonks)

The crackline up the leaning yellow wall, joining the R facing corner at the roof. Don't trust the manky old aid bolts. 1 FH, 3 manky carrot bolts.

Start: Start off the detached pillar either by leaning across and climbing steeply up, or a committing, but significantly easier leap.

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).
