Access issues inherited from Katoomba Area


Ethic inherited from Blue Mountains

Although sport climbing is well intrenched as the most popular form of Bluies climbing, mixed-climbing on gear and bolts has generally been the rule over the long term. Please try to use available natural gear where possible, and do not bolt cracks or potential trad climbs.

Because of the softness of Blue Mountains sandstone, bolting should only be done by those with a solid knowledge of glue-in equipping. A recent fatality serves as a reminder that this is not an area to experiment with bolting.

If you do need to top rope, please do it through your own gear as the wear on the anchors is both difficult and expensive to maintain.

It would be appreciated if brushing of holds becomes part of your climbing routine - do it with a soft bristled brush and never a steel brush!

The removal of vegetation - both from the cliff bases and the climbs - is not seen as beneficial to aesthetics of the environment nor to our access to it. However, the fast growing scrub can conceal walking tracks in mere months, so bringing a pair of secaturs and pruning as you walk is a good way of helping out with the constant task of track maintenance. Some appropriately discreet pruning is a far better alternative then track braiding (which causes far more damage). Its also a good warmup for your forearms!

Grade Route
Megan Project Sport Project 15m, 8

15m past the descent rungs.

28 *** Auto Bling Century Sport 18m, 9

This climb is a proper bang for your buck route. It may look short but it packs in a lot of climbing and styles that is never to hard but on till the oddly place anchors. Horizontal crux down low then big moves between positive holds, with a sneaky finish..

Soft at the grade but still not an easy tick.

FFA: Steve Grkovic

21 * Chairman Meow Sport 20m, 10

Sustained wall heading out left from the vegetated corner. Lots of tricky moves, usually involving tiny footholds! Shares the same first bolt and anchor with with Click Bait.

FFA: Neil Monteith, 2011

22 * Click Bait Sport 18m, 9

Thin face left of the vegetated corner. A bit different to most of the steep thug fests around this part of the world.

FFA: Neil Monteith, 2011

23 * Quaking Sport 18m, 8

Featured orange face just right of vegetated corner. Reachy move at 2nd bolt and tricky slopers to finish. A great warmup link-up is to climb Yellow Fever for two bolts then go left into this route - grade 21.

23 ** Yellow Fever Sport 17m, 7

Steep orange wall of bomber rock with two distinct cruxes. 'Fantastic' rock shapes.

FFA: Simon Foxhill

25 ** Savage Had an Aneurysm Sport 17m, 7

Another good steep orange line. A one move wonder on thin holds, the rest is juggy steep fun. Might be grade 24 if you can crimp?

FFA: Simon Foxhill

30 *** Stilnox Sport 14m, 5

Hard start and even harder arete finish. Very impressive and inspiring line.

FFA: Anthony Savage

24 * Meat Wrap Sport 15m, 6

Face on the right side of the arete with a roof flake start and bizarre vertical ironstone fin at finish (treat this with caution or the climb will go up a few grades!) Extend 3rd draw to stop rope drag.

FFA: Neil Monteith

Project (Simon?) Sport Project 15m, 8

Looks impressive! 10m right at big roof. Straight through the ceiling and up the wall above. Should be a classic if simon ever gets back here to tick it.
