Ethic inherited from Coffs Harbour

Climbing ethics in the Coffs Harbour area generally follow those of the rest of Australia. The sandstone often offers solid, natural protection which should be used instead of fixed protection where possible. Tape, ribbon, or something similar tied around a bolt or inserted in the route will indicate an incomplete route. Please respect these routes as projects until the marker is removed.


View historical timeline

Bunyip was found by Tristan Ricketts & Paul Daniel sometime around 1999.They called it Bunyip 'cos it was big (relative to the Fort Knox area et al),and not easily found.They also wanted a uniquely Australian name.They started bolting wicked wall then moved on to the larger black wall that faces south (30?m left/North of Wicked wall). Unfortunately they only got a few routes done before Tristan got a job and moved to Sydney.
