This shady large face has some very unique and sustained routes up remarkable grey rock in a similar, but easier style to nearby 'Eureka Wall'. Many of the routes feel like extended gritstone classics (but with better protection!).
Bring a spare rope for descent off the longer routes. A full trad rack should be carried, including some larger cams. Don't forget the bolt plates!
The cliff comes into the shade quite early in the morning, and stays that way for the rest of the day. Perfect in summer, miserable and wet in winter.© (nmonteith)
Access issues inherited from Victoria Range
The Victoria Range was badly burnt in the fires of February 2013 but all areas are now open to climbing (Feb 2014). However there are access changes to the cliffs in the Eureka area.
Follow the Jananginj Jawi track for 4 km. at the clearing before the old gate, go uphill on old track to caged Aboriginal art site of Jananginj Jawi. The track from here has virtually disappear with fires, floods and disuse, so bushbash right along base of cliff for 200m until the cliff breaks down a creek runs down the gully. The intricacies of the guidebook described track no longer exist, so basically follow the creek line up. The cairns are few and far between. Bushbashing across the cliff is tedious enough that it might be worth just following the creek up from where you cross it on the Jananginj Jawi track. You can see the east facing cliff on the right side of this gully from the track. Guidebook time might reflect what it took when the track was clear, allow 45-60 minutes for the vegetated experience.© (nmonteith)
