A pleasant Arapilsian gully spot for some shady cranking on a hot day. 'Sherpa Rocks' are found just to the south of the main 'Scoop Rocks' outcrops.


A bolted abseil point is located above 'Invalid Stout'. To get off routes E of 'Woodys' either downclimb juggy wall L of 'Woodys' or rap from suitable rock bollard.

Access issues inherited from Red Rock Area

Do NOT approach any of the crags in this area across the paddocks from Red Rock Road. The land has recently changed hands and the farmer does not want people crossing the property. Follow the tracks just outside the southern or northern boundaries of the farmland until able to move around the farmland to the area you are going. Please adhere to this to keep open the possibility of negotiated access.


Where the vague track to 'Scoop Rocks' hits the first rock outcrops just over the creek go up the R (S) side of the 'Scoop' Rock ridgeline, passing the odd cairn, to the first major outcrop that stands apart from the ridgeline, about opposite the Crater. It has two narrow gullies (it may be easier to simply walk straight up the hill, from the clearing after crossing the creek).

Orange Arapilesian corner about 5m R of 'Invalid Stout'. Ledge at 8m then overhung jug hauling up small roof crack. Has not been led yet - needs bolt.

FA: FTRA Neil Monteith, 2004

Subtle arête on R side of entrance to first gully. Easy crack for 5m to high BR. Step R and layback tenuous crack to break (crux). Through difficult bulge and up. U bolt lower off.

FA: Neil Monteith Kent Paterson, 2003

Some reachy moves on lovely compact rock. As for 'Invalid Stout' to first BR, then step L and up rounded slopers past another three BRs. There’s also medium to large cam placements. Belay from large rock bollards on summit.

FA: Neil Monteith Kent Paterson, 2003

More reachy climbing on good rock in next small gully 10m E of 'Invalid Stout'. Climb steep fingery wall (3 RBs) to face and corner (small/med cams and wires).

FA: Kent Paterson Neil Monteith, 2003

Orange corner on opposite side of gully to 'Revenue Road'.

Superb rock. Start 5m right of 'Woodys'. 'Flake' crack leads to horizontal break. Seemingly blank and baffling wall (BR) to rounded juggy finish (BR).
