Description

This place has huge new route potential for any eager punter with a drill and some fixed hangers.

Access issues inherited from Mt Hope

No access issues. This area is in a nature reserve and contains some rare and endangered flora and fauna. It may look pretty scrappy, but please take care and look after this area if you visit.

Approach

Turn onto Suicide Rock Road. Follow and park just before the gate, which will be about 100 metres from the base of the cliff. Choose your own adventure through the light bush to the base of each climb, though there are some faintly established tracks here and there.

Descent Notes

Descent for climbs on the main block (Grasping at Immortality through to Touch me I'm Sick) is via walking off the back and east (left) going the easiest/ safest way possible. Once off the block a track takes you back down to the base of Grasping at Immortality.

Ethic inherited from Mt Hope

Trad as well as bolted sport routes, with a mix of carrots and fixed hangers.

As of December 2015 the fixed hangers on this route are in urgent need of replacement (rusted and well past their use by date). Do not trust them!
