The cave faces north and is so large that it never actually gets the sun. However, it is notoriously "greasy" outside of winter so add a few grades. The cave is large enough to not get wet in the rain but it does seep occasionally. It doesn't get as spoogy as 'Rosies' though, so its worth checking out even if 'Rosies' is a spoogefest. The rock is sandstone and very few (if any) holds are chipped.
Only the most classic and obvious, difficult boulder problems are described from left to right along the cliff and some of them are eliminates. There are plenty of easier problems to warm up on at the right hand end but they are not described here.

Refer to map for 'Bomaderry Creek' Crags.Turn into Illaroo Rd off the Princes 'Highway' at North 'Nowra', just north of the Shoalhaven River. Take the 1st right which is Walsh Cres and follow it around until there is a bush reserve on your right. Park here and follow the track downhill for 30m. This is 'Mortein Wall', follow the track down past the cliff and turn right until you reach a huge cave with a big horizontal roof about 10m up. This is it. The bouldering gets harder the further left you go ...© (secretary)

Sit start at the rail, big mantle up to the sloper. Then move up to finish with a big move to the hueco. The corner is often full of cobwebs but this is well worth quickly brushing them away.
FA: Jack Folkes, 2014
Crimpy stand start, up on crimps and sharp undercut to top at flake and dirty edge (no match).

A big jump from a huge jug to another huge jug - the business is controlling the swing! The landing is a bit dodgy so pad it out and have a spotter.
FA: Joe Hodgson, 2000
Start under the roof with 2 undercuts (RH on pebble), move out to the lip and then traverse left and finish up "Joe, Joe Dynamo".
FA: Chris Webb-Parsons, 2006
Very crimpy, very hard looking project from the start of "Worm" straight up into the scoop. Old Paul Westwood project.
