Description

Call out to any rower you see on Iron Cove Bay and ask them what they think of the ergometer (ergo) and they'll tell you it's all about the same sequence repeated over and over again. All the problems on Ergoemeter Wall use the same sequence from start to finish. If you don't like heel hooks and mantling then this IS NOT the crag for you. Problems described from left to right facing the wall. High tide will cover the landing for all the overhang problems on Ergometer Wall.

Approach

Walk into Rodd Park and head right to the first stone outcrop you can see. Ergometer Wall is the short face including the overhang.

Chalk up, climb on and live the dream!

History

When the developer was knee high to a grass hopper, he would ride his bike over to Rodd Park and play on the rocks to escape the evil clutches of his sister. Not once did he ever dream that one day he would be registering some amazing problems there on the even more amazing web site thecrag.com.

Crag developed in 2012 by Brendon Flanagan and Ranger Dave as part of the great bouldering boom!

Chalk up, climb on and live the dream!

V1 Follow Your Favorites Boulder 1m

Everyone has a favorite move - be it a fist jam, layback or mono

For one man its all in the name

Brendon "The Heel" Flanagan loves nothing more than using three (or four) limbs to hang his weight!

Whether it is a over hang (understandable) or a Slab (I still don't know how he does it!) - The heel hook is a constant tool in his arsenal!

This challenge is dedicated to him

Sit start at the left most part of the Ergo wall. Move up and right till you've got the ledge and immediately throw a heel up.

Now without losing a heel off the ledge move as far as humanly possible.

Once you pop - mark the spot with a bit of chalk and challenge your mates to beat it!

Record currently stands at 6m
