Home to the start of many outdoor rock climbing careers, Morialta provides a decent number of routes with grades to suit all levels. Morialta is the most visited rock climbing area in Adelaide. Easy access, a number of quality routes, lovely scenery and the ability to be able to toprope almost everything gets people coming back time and time again.
To reach the crag head to Norton Summit Road and follow the winding path up the hill for about 5.5kms until car parking space appears on the right hand side. From the car park head down through the two gates and along the fire track. Boulder Bridge and the Billiard Table can be accessed by taking the first trail on the left. To reach Far Crag follow the fire track down and around the bend to the left were you will see a sign indicating rock climbing zone straight ahead. For access to Thorn Buttress head to Far Crag and scramble down the eastern end of the cliff for an access trail down to the main path. From the main track walk 25m downhill until you can cross the stream, follow this path until you reach the base of the cliff.
Morialta provides a place for both traditional and sport climbing, some routes with great gear some with none. However almost everything can be toproped and most are serviced by ring bollards. The gully has been climbed on for decades so there are very few unclimbed lines left. New bolting is banned and any bolt repairs should be done in conjunction with the Climbing Club of South Australia.
