Description

Short, steep little routes - a perfect place to leave the kids for the afternoon.

Access issues inherited from Bardens Lookout

* Temporary Access Change * Following the 2013 bushfires, the Collit's Crevasse and Lawson's Gully areas are no longer accessible from the main stairway entrance to Bardens (i.e., you can't turn right at the bottom of the stairs). Please respect the re-vegetation effort. Access to these areas is possible via Wentworth's Gully in Mt. York.

Ethic inherited from Blue Mountains

Mixed-climbing on gear and bolts has generally been the rule in the Blueies. 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. Generally it's best to leave all this sort of stuff to the local climbers.

24 ** Goosebumps Sport 10m, 4

This is Grant's first 'new' route in the mountains, and all caught on camera - except the swearing! Could be harder than 23? Although he had a long draw on the anchor he still refused to take the tick until he could clip the actual chain! Im sure he will 'tick' everyone off about this in years to come if they attempt to claim the tick without doing the final mantle. The second ascentionist was also made to go to the chain, after falling off it one the first attempt. That's integrity for you!!!

Start: 5m right of SoT, at cairn.
