Highest climbs in the quarry. Beware, some of these routes are seldom climbed and full of choss.
- Access Issues: inherited from Mountain Quarry
The gravel road into the quarry runs off the carpark on Coulston Road and has a combination-locked gate (normally locked), the code to which can be obtained from the Department of Parks and Wildlife. The quarry is also easily accessible on foot from the car park on Coulston Road. Don't leave valuables in your car.
|1||Shield of Achilles||23||2, 1655m|
Start at weakness directly belloe left edge of overlap. Crux is at 3rd RB (can be aided at 23M1). Follow grooves (can use small wires), up to a flake and upper crux.
|3||Learning to Fly||23 M0||35m|
Stick clip required for first FH. This FH is loose, and it is near impossible to stick clip it.
Old deathroute. First pitch now hopelessly entwined in new bolted routes.

Sex, Cigarettes and Chardonnay
Pitch 1: tricky move to gain the slab. 5BR and mid-size friends. Belay below the headwall. Pitch 2: power over the headwall, gingerly cross the slab and crank up the arete. 5BR to friends. (Mountain Quarry mini-guide, © Neil Gledhill 2008)
5 BRs plus natural gear.

Thick Red Line
Start on the left of the thick red band in the rock. Nice easy climb with plenty of GIMBs to two ring bolts 3/4 the way up. Second pitch is short and runout. Could be done in one pitch.
Start at the crack on the arete right of the red band.
