Description

A small slabby wall with three sport and some trad routes.

All bolts are now ring bolts (RBs in the descriptions) and there are bolted anchors. Please don't use the trees as anchors.

Climbs are listed left to right.

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.

Approach

Pass through the 'Lower Cliffs' gate and you're standing on top of 'Flat Battery Wall'. Scramble down to the right (looking out) to get to the base.

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.
