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.


This area is the first you come to, stretching to the left and right of the walking track where you first see a small cliffline. 'Another Roadside Attraction' is the prominent corner with a small roof, just right of the walking track.

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

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.

A good little shady slab. The start is located about 30m left of the tourist track. Leave the track near the information sign. As of January 2016 the approach is a little overgrown and you'll have to push through light scrub. It's worth persevering though, and the climb itself is clean. Belay on shrubs and gear.

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

FA: Tony Barten, 1987

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

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

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

FA: John Finnigan & Lincoln Hall, 1982

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

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

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

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

FA: Phill Cullen & Damien Jones, 1977

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

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

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

"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
