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.

Route History:

  • First Ascent: Malc Cochran, 1983

    I did FA(TR) & FFA 1983 (one runner). Seconder said it was 16 so I recorded that but its 18. I tope-roped the extreme LH edge variant (19) but J Marshall led it on sight1989. Originally, I thought it was Catch 22 (same start), failed, TR, then led.
