1. The Delah Wall 25 routes in Area

All Sport

To get here turn to face the cutting at the car park. Go straight up the steep hill on the right side of the quarry on a faint track, cross the saddle in the ridge and veer left and up to the 'Bumble Buttress' wall. 'Wildey on Wheels' is to the climbers left of the 'Baby pinnacle', 'Man Mountain' and NATATDT are in a gully behind the pinnacle, and the other routes on a wall to the right. Climbs are described left to right. If you continue past a large burnt stump for 20 metres you will be at the 'No Cams wall' with 'Trickey Dickey' being the first route on the arete. Drop down for 'Look Mum No Cams'.

Access Issues: inherited from Bulahdelah

Major access issues in all areas at present. Avoiding the area is best strategy at present(dec 2015) or risk inflaming the situation. A landowner to the north is alleging climbers have damaged his property. Avoid private landholdings and do not trespass.

Ethic: inherited from Bulahdelah

If you intend to bolt then it is best to speak to the locals as they will inform you of the do's and don'ts of bolting in the area.
