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.

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

12 Back Hander Trad 15m

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

18 Roger the Emu Sport 15m

The 1st climb you come to. Up past bolts to giant U lower off.

FA: mark woodard, 2000


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, 2000

21 * Storking Pork Sport 15m

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.

FA: G Hill, 2000

20 Kurds in the Whey Sport 18m

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, 2000

20 * Bunker Bolster Sport 18m

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

Start: Shared start with KitW, then move left.

FA: G Hill, 2000

20 * What Weapons Sport 18m

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 next to the left at the initial BB.

FA: G Hill, 2000

20 * The Butchers Brother Sport 18m

Great climbing. Don't whine too much if the odd bit of rock snaps off your probably doing the only ascent for that year.

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

FA: G Hill, 2000


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.

FA: G Hill, 2000


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

Start: Just right of corner.

FA: Mark woodard, 2000

19 Roger the Pelican Sport 18m, 9

Start in corner and climb up just right of corner. Turn the roof on its right then climb the left wall to single U anchor.

FA: Mark Woodard, 2000

18 Roger the Nudibranch Sport 20m

Up wall and thru roof.

Start: Left of corner

FA: mark woodard, 2000
