2 hard cruxes

FA: Michael Butzek, 1993

FA: Dave Filan, 1992

Direct start to pale yellow underwear.

FA: Steve Bullen, 1992

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.

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 ???????

A tough thin crux, but not a bad route.

FA: Ant Prehn, 1990

FA: Steve Bullen, 1992

Great climbing, used to be one of the most popular grade 25 at 'Nowra'. Up short R leaning crack, left at the top. Sadly since the drainage in the top carpark has been changed this route suffers from bad mud runoff.

FA: Giles Bradbury, 1990

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

so many moves for a micro-route. Classic

FA: Mike Law, 1993

Up the sharp black arete a few meters right of Fattergram

FA: Mike Law, 1994

FA: Mark Ashmore

FA: Mark Ashmore, 1999

The chimney - on trad. Rock quality and gear questionable until the last 10m

FA: Neil Monteith, 2010
