Small face with lower grade sport climbing, great for an aspiring leader just be safe and bring your helmet!

Access issues inherited from Morialta

Part of the area is located within the Morialta Conservation Park.


Head down to The Billiard Table from the top of Marialta, when you get down to the base of cliff rather than heading along the cliff line continue down a track towards the creek. About halfway down turn right to find a new track that will take you to the base of the cliff.

Ethic inherited from Morialta

Morialta is primarily a trad climbing and toproping area. Chipping, excessive chalk, litter and new bolts are all frowned upon and/or illegal.

Some routes have good natural gear, some have none (if the first ascensionist soloed it that is a good giveaway.) Most routes can be toproped and there are ring bollards in the more popular areas - use these where available and do not tie off to trees.

Any bolt repairs should be done in conjunction with the Climbing Club of South Australia.
