Description

First roof section in the crag with some easy vertical stuff, slopey awkwardness, topped off by a dash of steepness and a hint of bold. All round good fun!

38 moves from AA to RtR. Roof with pockets over flat rocks, daring 2.? meter drop. Unsent.

Access issues inherited from Zed Dimension

From hawkesbury road turn into high school drive, left on endeavour drive, right on newton way, and a left or right onto Shakespear drive which is a loop. At the opposite end of the loop is a dirt road, park and walk.

Approach

Sculpture Garden, roofs.

Ethic inherited from Zed Dimension

Much of the rock is marginal, so the need to clean is essential. Please try to maintain 'scent routes, but clean or "modify" new routes as required. The Sculture Garden has several chipped routes; with more to go in where boulders are otherwise unclimbable. Several boulders have horrible landings, so be wary.

History

G. Shaw 1889.

1
V0 * Ang Arete Boulder 3m

Fun moves to awkward ending. Left side of third main boulder.

2
V1 * Your Face Boulder 3m

From sit start in between Ang's Arete and Pusher man. Catch a left sidepull with some funky footwork before moving straight up through crimps to topout on slopers at end of Ang's Arete. A fun technical foot work line.

V1 * Pusher Man Boulder 3m

Climbs vertical line left of Crankin' Corner. Through weird side presses to top out on lichen ridden slope-y-ness.

4
V1 * Crankin' Corner Boulder 3m

Arete on left side of steepness leading to roof. Sit start on slopers, use high arete, up and over scary sloper bulge top out. V-Nice!

5
V2 ** Like'n Lichen Boulder 3m

First Ascent - Adrian Brogan; 18-10-2010 Sit starts on second to last sloper on left side of blank roof. Tends left and up to sloper side pulls to finish high on awkward moves. V' Nice.

6
V5 *** El Dragón de la Muerte Boulder 12m

Starts as for Liken Lichen, traverses through low roof, mantles onto shelf and up onto the hollow roof. Perfect pockets litter this awesome roof, with an excellent top out! No feet on the lower rail stick to the roof until after the batman boot; then the two high feet on the wall at the end are legit. Many alternate endings to this roof!

V2 ** Traversity of Lichen Boulder 4m

Start on Like'n Lichen and traverse obvious high sloper line out to the right. Tops out at good rail. Continuation out right is still un'scent.

8
V1 * Sand in my hoo hoo Boulder 2m

A great lowball traverse along an iron stone band. Start matched and traverse left dragging your right heel as you go.
