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.


It's amazing what a teenager on drugs will bolt. Very run-out slab climbing, which was vogue in the mid 90s. The rock is quite loose and the old bash-in carrot bolts are questionable. Don't attempt these leads if you're not feeling confident.

Access issues inherited from Glasshouse Mountains

Most 'Glasshouse Mountains' climbing is within the Glass House Mountains National Park. Please respect the environment and other people's enjoyment of it. Access to climbing here is a privilege, not a right.

Descent notes

Walk off the top - there are no rap anchors.

Ethic inherited from Glasshouse Mountains

Modern climbers establishing new routes have taken great pains to ensure any new routes do not interfere with the historic routes established many decades ago.

Retro-bolting of existing routes is unacceptable!

New routes shall make use of traditional protection where available.

After finding a bag of dope on the summit of Crookneck (true story!) the boys set to work getting ripped and ripping in to this obscure slab with petrol generator, extension cord and borrowed parents drill. When it was bolted there was a large forest at the base, which is now a suburban housing estate.

Climbing 'Prehistoric Dog' to its third BR, then step right and climb up thin wall keeping right of loose block to big heuco-jug and rap rings. Rap off.

FA: Neil Monteith, 1995

Start 15m before the end at the R hand end of the cliff. Scramble up slab to first BR. A reachy move follows to jug and second BR. The climb continues upwards past 2 more BR's then finishes with an easy but very run-out slab to a DBB on the L.

FA: Neil Monteith & Marten Blumen, 1995

Start 5m of 'Prehistoric Dog Hueco Variant'. Weave up the slab on big jugs finding the least line of resistance to ledge then finish directly up to DBB. Bold with only minimal pro.

FA: Neil Monteith, 1995

Start 10m L of 'Purple Pack'. Solo up juggy wall, keeping R of small tree, to BR. Climb up to second BR and edge delicately up onto red slab. Thin moves follow up this passing 2 BR's to DBB.

FA: Mark Bennett, Marten Blumen & Neil Monteith, 1995

From 'Slow Motion Grass Smoker' 's second BR, step 1m R and climb onto slab. Climb this for 6m then traverse R and up to 'Purple Pack' 's DBB. Very runout at top.

Start 5m L of 'Acid Dropper'. Climb the big jugs, slinging them for pro, and trend slightly right to below second smooth red slab and BR. Up slab easily to top with no pro. Belay on DBB. Limited pro.
