Shade, Sport Climbing, Easy Access


Vertical to slightly overhanging sports climbing in a shady gully.

Access issues

When you arrive, advise the 'Hayes Creek Wayside' that you are going climbing.


Drive down to the camp ground and follow the track that goes straight past the horse paddock and down to the creek. 2WD or Low clearance 4wds park near the creek, cross creek and follow edge of ridge South-West on obvious trail for 10 mins.

Where to stay

Hayes Creek Wayside Inn offers great camping, aircon rooms, pool, Pub and decent food. Always pays to support them.


Sports Climbing. No retrobolting.

#3 Camalot!

Climb name: Edelweiss

FA: Matthes Kerkmann

Break left at 'Barramundi Dreamings's' 5th bolt and follow 3 U-bolts to anchor

FA: Jason McCarthy, 14 Jun 2014

There are two options to finish this climb. Right of the fig tree or continue up left of the tree through dirty rock past one carrot and possibly two rings. The left option is rarely climbed.

Takes the left line up this gently overhanging wall. Recently rebolted to the first anchor with Powers PFpro and Bolt-Products twisted rings, the climbing past this anchor is not worth the effort.

FA: Matthes Kerkmann

There are some nice technical transition sequences that would make an onsite ascent of this climb feel about a grade harder.

Next to cave

Another climb bolted with Fixe wedge bolts in soft rock. RECOMMENDED TO NOT BE CLIMBED

Start: Right of "Ride my ramp"

FA: Col Reese & Andy, 4 May 2009

FA: Matthes Kerkmann

Up first two FH's of 'Linkshander' then over bulge, trends left to ledge then right and up to anchors. Very thin and sequency

Set by Jason McCarthy & Jenna Brady, Aug 2012

4 carrots

A couple of harder moves at the second and fifth bolt due to smallish footholds, the rest steady and enjoyable. Can be a bit sandy as all routes on this wall.
