1
24 ** Black Snake Sport 20m, 9

Major steep arête on right side of orange face. Quite unusual climbing style for 'Nowra', with lots of sideways holds and blocky edges. Start arête direct with bouldery moves past first bolt. Rest on stance then more trick moves up marbled rock to tricky crux bulge. Finish up crack.

Start: Starts 10m left of 'Mystery Mossy Slab'.

FA: Neil Monteith, 2011

2

Finish direct up sandy shallow crimps. Will add a grade to the route.

3

Action packed steep arête with amazing moves and rock, especially up high. Start off ledge trending left on jugs to reach line of edges leading to the arête proper. Crank crank to top. Will be grade 25/26.

Start: Next arête left of 'Black Snake', starting on little ledge with single bolt belay.

4

Start on slab 5m right of big mossy corner. Left trending line past flakes and big pocket to join into major corner crack. 'Layback' and stem up this (surprisingly clean) to anchors under big roof. Crack seeps after heavy rain. Will be 21. Only top half is bolted currently.

5
12 Mystery Mossy Slab Mixed 30m, 5

Mossy black slab on the right side of wall which offers a convenient escape route at the end of the day. Originally had lone carrot halfway up sticking out a long way. Now has 5 very spaced rings and a rap chain. Needs a good clean down low.

FA: Hill in the 80s?, 2000

6

Slightly overhung face just left of major corner crack. Sustained edges and pockets. 25? There is a direct finish, and an easier right version bolted.
