Description

PC for 'Project Crag' or 'Planet C**k'. Whatever the name, this crag contains some of the hardest and most popular (difficult) routes at 'Nowra'. Though the crag is dusty and can sometimes be wet, despite appearances, the routes can be excellent and varied.

Approach

Opposite and slightly downstream of Thompsons Point.

'Access' by parking near the substation, climbing over the fence and down the iron rungs.

Ethic inherited from Illawarra

Not particularly good, but probably the best thing to do here if you don't climb hard.

The anchors are set in seeping rock, and completely rusted after 10 years. New stainless glue-ins anchors (and last bolt) were added in 2004.

Start: Start at the left hand end of the main wall, amongst the big fallen boulders. It starts up the very obvious (and greasy looking) corner.

FA: Paul Westwood, 1991

6
32 ** Attack Mode Sport 9m

This is actually the first 4/5's of 'White Ladder', and has been left in the guide only out of senitmentality (and for those that are looking for good 32's to do).

FA: Rob Lebreton, 1994

7
34 ** White Ladder Sport 13m

Short but desperately powerful climbing. 'Excellent'. Originally climbed as 'Attack Mode' to the fixed biner and given grade 32.

Start: Start at the huge handlebar jug right of the massive fallen boulder.

FA: Chris Webb

29 *** Dude Food Sport 11m

FA: Rob Lebreton, 1991

29 * Vogue Sport 12m

Super bouldery roof. The original flake in the roof broke and has now been replaced by a drilled pocket.

FA: Stuart Wyithe, 1992

10
26 *** Church Of Christ Sport 15m

Start with a big throw around the lip heading left past rings. Gather your thoughts, bust through the crux and keep trucking to the end.

FA: Graham Fairbairn, 1991

11

Bang out the steep start, break right and and keep pumping.

FA: Dave Filan, 1991

FA: Rob Lebreton, 1996

3 bolt boulder problem.. Soft if you can reach the big pocket.

FA: Paul Westwood, 1996

14
27 ** Hard Candy Sport 18m

A pocket boulder gem.. Tricky and funky start getting easier leading up to the sand pit. Get a good rest then knuckle down through and couple big moves and a wicked stretchy pocket boulder top.

FA: Steve Bullen, 1991

15
26 * Shocked Sport 18m

FA: Rob Lebreton, 1992

16
27 ** Super Shocked Sport 21m

Start: The extension to 'S'.

FA: Rob Lebreton, 1997

17
26 ** Gay Porn is Art Sport 20m, 11

A bouldery start leads to some excellent moves in steepy, pumpy territory. Save some for the top but if its all to hard clip the anchors on Bachelor's Ball, but for the full experience tick go all the way.

25 *** Trigga Nigga Sport 20m

Excellent steep climbing, and the classic 'Nowra' 25.

Start: Start where the obvious undercut roof touches the ground (at a ring bolt).

FA: Andrew Bull, 1992

21

Continuing the tradition of excellent 28's at 'Nowra'. Backup anchor added in 2004. Start: Start 2m to the right of 'TN'. The undercling at the crux snapped off around 2012-13, but there's still a sequence.

FA: George Fieg, 1995

22

Finishes at rooflet.
