Grade Route

The following four climbs are to the left of the walking track.

1
Open Project Sport Project

There is a photo of this fine route up an orange open-book corner on the inside cover of the ACT Granite Guide. The first two thirds are about grade 23 and nice climbing. The last few metres will be 27 or 28 and are tenuous and thin. The start is left and around the corner from Poultry in Motion.

2
20 Poultry in Motion Mixed 10m, 3

A good little shady slab. The start is located about 30m left of the tourist track. Leave the track near the information sign. Belay on shrubs and gear. Rebolted 2010.

FA: Craig Kentwell, Mike Peck, 1987

3
20 Legless Trad 15m

The body chimney with a chockstone, left of 'Armless'.

FA: Tony Barten, 1987

4
21 * Armless Trad 20m

A strenuous off-width, in case you're into that sort of thing... At the same level as 'Another Roadside Attraction' and above 'Poultry in Motion', the obvious, leftwards leaning off-width. Place a high runner in the chimney, then up the outside into the off-width.

FA: Kim Carrigan, Rick McGregor, 1977

5
12 Blue Stumps Trad 10m

Start five metres left of 'Blue Lights', just right of the obvious crack. Climb the thin crack. Step around to a corner then up an easy face to finish.

FA: Anne Hastings, Caron Avis, 1987

6
18 Blue Lights Trad 15m

The awkward leaning corner crack immediately right of the tourist track. Finish up slabby arete. DBB and walk off.

FA: John Finnigan, Lincoln Hall, 1982

7

Start at the crack 6m right of Blue Lights, on the other side of the same boulder. This is just left of Another Roadside Attraction. Climb crack for 4m and pike left onto mossy slab. Finish as for Blue Lights. DBB and walk off.

FA: John Finnigan, Margaret Finnigan, Will Steffen, 1982

8
14 Dubious Tactics Trad 15m

Start as for Lengthways Chinaman but keep going up the right-curving crack. Belay as for Blue Lights. DBB and walk off.

FA: John Finnigan, Lincoln Hall, Will Steffen, 1982

9

The obvious corner crack right of the tourist track. A good line.

FA: Phill Cullen, Damien Jones, 1977

10
16 Kate's Bush Trad 10m

Ugh. The crack three metres right of 'Another Roadside Attraction'. Gain the crack which is hard to get established in and then turns into a hideous off-width. Finish with a chest jam!

FA: Tony Barten (solo), 1988

11
23 Bad Luck Sir Mixed 12m, 2

Start two metres right of 'Kate's Bush'. Up and right past the first bolt. Cross the face to the crack on the right, then up the slab past the second bolt.

FA: Tony Barten, Craig Kentwell, 1988

12

Almost as long as the name. Start 15 metres right of 'Bad Luck Sir'. Up the right-hand corner with a no-hands rest halfway, then power up the strenuous crack to finish.

FA: Craig Kentwell, Bill Coddington, 1988

19 Plasticine People Sport 7m

"Maybe if you take out the bolts, nobody will know." - Joe Lynch. The short slab on a hidden boulder 15 metres left of 'Blue Stumps' as you face uphill. Up past two bolts. Rope stretching!

FA: Tony Barten, Gordon Poultney, 1987
