Grade Route
22 * Bumzek Sport 10m

2 hard cruxes

24 * Stolen Property Sport 10m

Direct start to pale yellow underwear.

28 ** Drive Bye Directe Sport 4

Two bolts add a direct start to the fantastic drive bye. Start in the letterbox and get ready for some postage! This direct start avoids the big rest.

27 ** Drive Bye Sport 11m

FA: Steve Bullen, 1992

18 * A Nice Offering Sport 10m

First 3 ascents done on gear. Now has ring bolts. There is a small - fist sized - rock that is loose above the roof. One day it will be loose enough to come out. Until then take a little care.

Start: Climbs crack and peapod 4m left of AVNS.

FA: M.Hunn


Open Project. Like the rest of the routes on this wall, it needs a scrub after rain. About 25 ???????

26 * A Very Nice Sausage Sport 10m

A tough thin crux, but not a bad route.

FA: Ant Prehn, 1990

Great climbing, and probably the most popular grade 25 at 'Nowra'. Up short R leaning crack, left at the top

FA: Giles Bradbury, 1990

22 ** Killer Boas Sport 10m

A nice route - but why everyone thinks it is worth 3 stars we will never know.

Start: Start to the right of the blunt arete on the right hand side of the wall where there is a big chimmney.

FA: Andrew Bull & Tony Barton, 1991
