Description

A superbly grid bolted wall by the master himself, aka Graeme Hill. Typical 'Nowra' vertical climbing on great looking orange rock, with most routes about 20m.

BOLTING IS BANNED to the left (south) of the lookout and 100m right of the lookout as this is National Park land. Please avoid climbing on the cliff directly under the lookout, not only will you probably get a rock or beer bottle thrown at you from the tourists, you'll also attract unwanted attention from the authorities! Do not build new rock cairns - apparently there is an $11,000 fine if you do.

Approach

Go down the gully as per Husky Homo & Hill Top Hoods about one third down skirt around right and you will see the climbs.

Lots of bolts in this region. Most development has been done after the 1980s.

Why not add a trad climb to this gridbolted wall. Named after the second punched herself in the face when a hold let go.

Start 1m right of Roger the emu, up crack with tricky mantle onto the ledge then up easy slabby corner crack. Boulder and gear belay.

FA: Chris Ash & Karen Taylor, 2014

The 1st climb you come to. Up past bolts to giant U lower off. Tricky start, take care to second bolt.

FA: mark woodard, 2003

start under the leaning crack, all geared up!! all those bottom placements you think you can see are dirty and flaring, so you climb up a bit freak out and down climb a little then do some gardening.. you get decent gear at about 4 mtrs, more nut placements than cams finish up storking pork anchors

Start: ummm. at the bottom of the crack i guess!

FA: Rick Phillips & Graeme Hill, 1979

The next climb along. A few reachy moves and will test shortish people. Crosses the crack at about 2/3s height and up on jugs to anchors.

A beautiful piece of work inspired by nature and the Indian Stainless Steel plant used to make my bolts raw materials. This sought of climb keeps the wall average grade somewhere around the solid 20. So quit complaining if a few climbs are underdone the ones to the side are probably over done.

Start: Shared start with BB, then moves right.

FA: G Hill, 2003

Another line of inspiring stainless steel that sets this wall apart from all the others i have grid bolted.

Start: Shared start with 'Kurds in the Whey' at the boulder. Straight up - using the left line of bolts.

FA: G Hill, 2003

These two routes make up some of the best climbing on this wall. A little bit techo and sometimes fancy.

Start: This climb shares the same start as 'The Butchers Brother' 2m left of 'Bunker Bolster' . Up for a couple of bolts then take the right line.

FA: G Hill, 2003

Great climbing. Don't whine too much if the odd bit of rock snaps off your probably doing the only ascent for that year, although things seem to have cleaned up.

Start: At the initial BB in the middle of the wall. Straight Up.

FA: G Hill, 2002

A great piece of climbing,well I liked it!

Start: This is the third route in from the corner. Without the big U bolt lower off. Bouldery start on little black pocket then long black wall.

FA: G Hill, 2003

Committing climbing up the wall past little overlaps. There is a loose block at the start. Rad moves !!

Start: Just right of corner.

FA: Mark woodard, 2003

Start 1m right of corner. Turn the roof on its right then climb the left wall to single U anchor.

FA: Mark Woodard, 2003

There is a vegetated corner here

The next one along. Orange slab, to roof flake.

FA: G hill, 2003

The slab of death, last climb in this sector...
