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.


An area hidden away about 200m north west of the Tower. This area contains several quality walls facing in all directions. Quite a bit of new route potential exists. There are two incomplete projects in this area as well.

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.


From Billabong Boy (Peasants Wall area) walk up hill (north) behind this route to a worthless gray juggy wall. Walk right along base of this until you can walk up a vegetated gully with an impressive 'Arapiles' style bulging wall on your left. The first route starts here. A single bolt rap anchor exists above Chimney Slot 'Thing'.

Has not had a known free ascent. Carrot to start then up and leftwards through very steep territory past a few FHs.

Set by Neil Monteith, 2007

Has not had a known free ascent. Shared start as for Neil’s Project. Up orange face (BR) then steep overhung layback crack to finish (RB).

Set by James Pfrunder, 2004

Weaves around to get up this pleasant wall. Starts 20m left of Wrapped In Pain, just left of scungy looking chimney slot thing. Heave over initial bulge, scuttle left then up mossy rounded face to gain horizontal. Traverse left a few metres then up right trending corner flake. When this runs out climb right (only obvious holds!) and up juggy face to finish. Full rack required + additional slings.

They don’t get better than this. The easiest way to the top.

FA: Gay Welders Union, 2007

Located on north facing main wall with a large scooped base. Malcolm forgot his harness and had to belay Neil's dogging efforts with a sling around his waist! Three FHs up right leading steep scoops to gain broken crackline. Up this with fiddly trad pro to committing top out up grey wall.

FA: Neil Monteith & Malcolm Matheson, 2004

Located in the small gully that can only be entered by tightroping across the hanging logs, about 20m right of Wrapped In Pain. No route description was written up - but can presume it climbs the east face somewhere on small gear.

FA: Rich Ham & Anita Sharma, 2005

50m west (right) of Wrapped In Pain is a distinct chasm with a large chockstone at the southern end. This area stays in the shade for most of the day.

West side of entrance to the 'Slow Torture' 'Gully' which is 50m west of 'Wrapped in Pain'. Worthwhile despite the name. Rounded arête with short crack at start. Bulgy and committing finish with last trad below your feet.

FA: Neil Monteith Gareth Llewellin Adam Demmert, 2004

Starts 3m left of 'Maggot Ridden'. Technical face and seam climbing with spaced small trad gear. Great rock.

FA: Adam Demmert, 2004

The giant flake on the wall between 'Slow Torture' and 'Skullcracker'. Gain the ledge below this flake by starting 8m right at weakness through rooflet (route was attempted direct but was abandoned when no pro and grade 23+ roof moves were encountered). Walk across sledge and then up nice orange wall until holds run out, look behind to see the big flake, stem onto it and jug easily on ledge. Up left to finish.

FA: Neil Monteith, Adam Demmert & Cath, 2007

Scoops to flake crack then onwards to inverted ceiling. Place vital small cam in slot and swing downwards on horn jug (FH) and over lip to juggy face. Up this face (two FH¹s and sling horns) to clip-and-go lower-off.

Start: Start 20m left of "Slow Torture".

FA: Neil Monteith, Adam Demmert, Rich Ham & Jono Schimdt, 2005

Very featured crack directly opposite "Skullcracker" with nice jugs to finish.

FA: Anita Sharman & Rich Ham, 2005

The first crack 1m from the arete on the left side of the wall as you walk into the 'Slow Torture' gully. Tricky roof move with nice crack to finish.

FA: Anita Sharman, Rich Ham & Neil Monteith, 2005

The next two routes are located on the left side of a south facing wall that is 50m north of Wrapped in Pain. Either scramble up grey jugs directly opposite Wrapped in Pain or find your way up the gully on east side. The climbs start on a terrace that has three thin cracklines on the left side.

The right crack. Stick place the first wire(easy to do), step across the gap, then blast up the crack pumping out placing gear. At small roof head up and left. Abseil off fixed sling above Walking the Void.

FFA: adam demmert & Alister Hudson, 2005

FA: Adam Demmert, 2005

The middle crack. Stick place the first wire (easy to do), step across the void, couple of hard moves lead to a rest, then waltz up the crack heading up the left branch where the crack forks and steepens. Pumpy last moves to good jugs. Abseil from sling.

FFA: adam demmert, 2005

The next route is in the continuation of the gully uphill from James’ Project (towards Hudsons Traing Regime.) There is an impressive orange sweep of wall on the left side. On the uphill end is this black featured wall with two FH’s.

Two FHs then rightwards diagonal fingercrack. Bolted by Kent in the pouring rain using a manky sling as a harness. Hangers were recycled from one of Brookies past glories at Camels Hump. Route was abandoned to the elements for three years and finally climbed by Neil.
