Summary

An amazing location of high & low overhangs, high balls, slabs, aretes, face climbs and traverses. Classics include 'Thy Mighty Right Hand' (V4) and 'Church Of The Eternal Hug' (V6)

Description

A boulderer's playground of biblical proportions! This crag provides the sacred rock lover with everything they could ever pray to lay their chalked up calloused hands on.

Access to and around the crag is user friendly with easy gullies and tracks connecting all 3 tiers. Brendon made some garden trails and cairns to mark your merry way through the labyrinth.

Split up into three separate tiers you'll find this crag has everything on offer.

Best of all this crag has been developed with all levels of boulderers in mind. There'll be open projects left by Geoff Marshall and Ranger Dave Archer to tease and tantalise the masses!

The developers are pleased to announce that this crag is now tic AND leech free. We suffered the hard yards battling these unholy beasts so you could boulder without the risk of any unwanted demons.

Access issues

Please respect the Houses as you walk into the crag. We have established a good relationship with the locals, including the teaches at the nearby school. Please continue to be a good example of the climbing community

Approach

Park on Koola Ave closest to the start of the playing field. Walk parallel to the playing field with the houses on your left until you come to the Cricket nets.

Here you have two options.

  1. To come out at King Davids Overhang and have access to the start of Genesis, go left of the Cricket nets and follow the path till you hit a tight gully. Turn left down that and follow the path to KDO

  2. To come out at Purgatory and have access to the right most section of the crag (From 'The Raising Of The Highball' on), go Right of the nets. Follow the path till you go right and down a rocky section to hit Purgatory. Follow the path from there heading in the same direction to hit the middle tier.

Ethic

Development is still open in this area, but please mate sure your new line is reasonably different to those existing. If you have any questions or concerns don't hesitate to contact the main developers - Brendon Flanagan or Ranger Dave.

Please respect the crag and clean up an trash you see. Sadly teenage punks from the local school mess this place up.

History

This area was initially discovered and developed in the early 00s by Phil Ritchie and Chris Ritchie. Originally named the crag "Crispy".

This amazing multi tiered crag has everything a boulderer has ever wanted. Ranger Dave Archer, Brendon Flanagan, Geoff Marshall and many other developers were blessed by a power greater than gravity to be able to have free reign over the development of a crag with such an extensive selection of problems.

Over a 9mth period the crag was developed much to the anticipation of the climbing community

Discovered by Ranger Dave Archer in July 2013 during the Great Bouldering Boom!
