Did you know?

Did you know that you can create an account to record, track and share your climbing ascents? Thousands of climbers are already doing this.


Follow the "Emergency Only" Trail west from the car park. When the Omega Block trail branches off up hill, continue straight for another 40m to reach the right side of Lower Tier. Routes are listed from the far end (Leaky Bucket area) to the end closest to the car park (Oxbow area).

Grade Route
10 Limbo Trad 78m
11 Limbo Direct Finish Unknown 30m
Open Project BoulderProject

Start at base of wall and traverse up and right to finish as per "Four Digits"

V1 Gotta start somewhere BoulderProject

Sit start with side pull and crimp, head up to opposing gaston and top out.

FA: Andy Crow, 2016

V2 * Leaky Bucket Boulder 4m

Stand start on crimpy dishes, big move to giant jug, then two committing sloper moves to top out. You can sit start the problem at the same grade.

FA: Jimmy, 2009

V3 * Four digits Boulder 4m

Sit start with opposing side pulls; one on arete and one on face. Head straight up.

FA: Rocot, 2015

V2 Arete Boulder 4m

Sit start the arete with high crimp and left side pull. Don't use the chockstone to the right. Fun but contrived.

FA: anon, 2015


Climb the chockstone. From good jugs, campus between good holds to mantle. Some might call this a bad landing and uninspiring moves... they would be right.

FA: anon, 2015

12 A Soft Touch Trad 25m

Named because of the furry handholds! Starts 2m left of Grey Arete at the foot of the slab. Up right leading crack to overlap. Step up left onto slab below overhang. Up ramp to break overhang on the right almost joining Grey Arête before heading up and left to ledge.

FA: Rupert Freeman & Jerry Kupfer, 2002

10 ** Grey Arete Trad 32m

good beginner trad lead

18 Biker Mice From Mars Unknown 32m

Contrived. Up the wall between Grey Arete and Slut's Honour, placing gear on the left. At the ledge go directly over the ledge on the right where the boulder rests. Up right of the slab to the top.

FA: Michael 'Wonderdog' Woodrow, Anthony Bishop & Julian Keane, 1994

21 * Slut's Honour Sport 17m, 4

Starts just right of 'Grey Arete'. Has recently had additional bolts added. There is some natural pro for extra protection.

24 * Slut's Alliance Sport 18m, 6

Good link up. Original climbed SH to its fourth bolt then right (crux) to join Green Alliance below overlap. Several recent ascents have gained the overlap at undercling and traversed right to GA which provides great climbing at 23.

FA: 2004

25 * The Green Alliance Sport 15m

Thin up green face direct. Still goes despite some exfoliation though some have suggested it may be pushing 26.

21 * Sluts Have No Honour Sport 15m

Up the wall then moving right and up at the crux. One my first attempt to lead it I got crossed up while eye-balling the chains and fell. The top bolt (an unnecessary bolt IMO) wasn't there then and I took a big arc down to my belayer (Anthony Bishop). Whilst I was flushing out the adrenaline Matthew Brooks rapped down and bolted the fun out of it.n Got it easy second try...

FA: Michael Woodrow & Anthony Bishop


Start as for 'Unprofessional Conduct', moving up past a BR and RB to chains.


Start as for 'Silent Assassin' at the base of the rib, but trend slightly rightwards. Up through cracks/groove to chains on left. May be run out.

23 ** Underseige Sport 12m, 4

Originally started off the same ledge as 'No Joy', but has had a direct start added. Up the wall passing a bolt to break (gear), then up past three more bolts to chains.

18 No Joy Trad 20m
17 to 18 Keystones / Wall R of No Joy Sport 10m, 2

Scramble up to start, 2m right of 'No Joy'. Two bolts to chain.

FA: Peter Stebbins & Matthew Brooks, 1991

15 * Blind Sox Trad 30m

Up Blind Justice to slab, across R into corner, then R to the arete (not great pro till towards the top of the arete), up atete to top of State of Shock. Belay from DBR on State of Shock.

20 * State of Shock Mixed 25m, 2

up chimney/crack to fused corner protected by ring bolt to rap station

Start: just left of poxbow under obvious corner

16 R * Blind Justice Mixed 40m, 2

Pro is spaced, a fall before the small slot (small cam, medium nut) would probably be a grounder. Did this onsite, covered in moss in damp conditions. Matty Brooks came in a week or 2 later and cleaned it up and added a bolt or 2 and claimed it. Nice of him to tidy it up for me!

FA: Michael Woodrow & Ian Campbell

17 ** Poxbow Trad 30m
16 * Sox Glo Trad 29m
21 * Split Images Variant Mixed 20m, 3

Appears to start up 'Split Images', cross through 'Law Enforcer' through the overlap and finishing up 'Poxbow' variant?

16 * Split Images Mixed 20m, 2

Starts up the front of the rib, with gear before the first bolt. After the second bolt, step right around the arete then up the pocketed wall

19 ** Law Enforcer Mixed 20m, 4

Right of Split Images, starts in the gully of Oxbow. Straight up to RB, then follow Slit Images using its 2 RBs to the overhang. Clip the RB above the lip and move left under the overhang and pull awkwardly into Poxbow. Then into the overhanging headwall using flakes and finish on the Poxbow ledge.

FA: Matthew Brooks & Daniel Brooks, 1991

6 * Oxbow Trad 130m, 4

  1. 33m (6)

  2. 33m (6)

  3. 33m (6)

  4. 30m (6) Crux pitch!

8 * Dummy bidder Trad 20m

Poorly pro down low. Shallow open corner 3m R of oxbow. Up corner to step R onto arête at where cracks converge. Up to just below blocky overhang. Step right onto juggy arête and up to the top

5 Spit the dummy Trad 20m

Good first lead, well pro on good rock. Juggy rib 5m R of oxbow. Just left of narrow gully/crack. Follow rib just just under overhang. Join onto dummy bidder to finish stepping R
