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!

The overhung face just right of the waterfall on the left end of the fixed ropes - starting off the shale ledge. Very hard start followed by great climbing on the pumpy red wall above. Seeps after heavy rain.

FFA: Steve Grkovic


Bouldery start.

FFA: Steve Grkovic


Long and pumpy, a few fun traverse moves. Intimidating if 23 is your limit.

25 *** Barbie Boys / BBQ Boys Sport 20m, 9

JUst to the left of the rope end at hanging flake. Up and trend left on the bolts with red glue

FA: S Grkovic

26 ** Barefoot and Pregnant Sport 20m, 9

Just right of 'BBQ Boys' up ironstone rib feature. Wanders around a bit and has some tricky slopers in the middle. Great sustained climbing.

FFA: Megan Turnbull


Hyper classic of the crag. Starts just left of small hanging corner at right end of fixed ropes. Sustained bouldery climbing over bulges in the first half - then pumpy reachy climbing to finish.

24 Boris the Blade Sport 16m, 7

A bit scary. The left trending line sharing the same start of 'Wife Beater'. Rough rock and runout.

FFA: Simon Foxhill

25 * Wife Beater Sport 17m, 5

Runout - has about half the bolts of nearby routes! Lucky the bolts protect the hard stuff. Top half is a bit loose and scary.

FFA: Anthony Savage

22 All The Way May Sport 11m, 5

Big left facing flake feature with a hard last move. Rock quality isn't great.

FFA: Simon Foxhill


Crazy adventure all the way to the top of the cliff through a sea of choss. Lucky there is lots of bolts! You will need some long draws to cut down on the rope drag.

Possibly the easiest route at the crag - however it's not pretty. Big sandy horizontals.
