A Crag Guide gives an extensive view of all sub areas and climbs at a point in the index. It shows a snapshot of the index heirachy, up to 300 climbs (or areas) on a single web page. It shows selected comments climbers have made on a recently submitted ascent.

At a minor crag level this should be suitable for printing and taking with you on a climbing trip as an adjunct to your guidebook.

1. Pyrmont Wall 4 routes in Crag

Boulder and Top Rope

Long/Lat: 151.193025, -33.864918

Unique Features And Strengths:

Hundreds of meters of sandstone wall, 20 mins walk from the city, car parking right next to the climbs, lit at night, wheelchair access (might be useful when leaving)


This cliff has been partially blasted out to make room for the road below. You can traverse most of the full length, and there are 10 to 15 meter climbs. The fence and steps above look like they will make good anchor points for a top rope. Unfortunately quite a bit of the rock is soft and sandy.

Boulder and Top Rope

An old harbour side quarry from ye olden days. Not the best rock around but pretty good if you're in need of getting your chalked up hands on some rock for some training before your next trip.


Park on Pirama Road and make sure you pay for the parking. Parking Rangers patrol the area looking for a chance to raise some revenue.


Local Council intended to remove part of the cliff face (Indian Root) in the late 90's early 00's but local resident and first recorded ascentist Giles Yates went in and changed the course of the crag. Thanks to Giles, Indian Root and other climbs/problems are here today for all of us to enjoy.!

RouteGradeStyleSelected ascents
1 Indian Root / Dirty But Doable

Starting off either side of the arete, follow the corner to the top. A little sandy due to the lack of traffic but for what it's worth it's quite a good climb.

FA: Giles Yates, 1998

17 Top rope 17m
2 ** The Quarterdeck

Traverse the 20m wall, keeping feet about 6 inches off the ground. Start is a bit harder due to slim toe holds. Gets easier once there is a line for your toes to follow.
