Description

A small slabby wall with three sport and two trad routes, all with easy access for top-roping.

All bolts are carrot bolts (BRs in the descriptions) so bolt plates are needed. Trees at the top can be used as anchors, however this is a National Park so please use them in a way that won't cause any damage.

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

'Flat Battery Wall' is the buttress on the left as you arrive at the 'Lower Cliffs'. The top can be accessed from the main summit track or you can scramble up left of 'Bad Move'.

Descent Notes

Descend either by walking down the track beside the cliff or by rapping/lowering using trees as 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.
