Grade Route
26 ** Inflatey Katey Sport 12m

Good fun. If you get the right beta, it feels more like 25.

FA: John Passlow, 1992

27 ** Sex Kitten Sport 12m

FA: Graham Fairbairn, 1991

27 *** Top One Thommo Sport 15m

This route is an absolute blast and a NSW classic. It climbs the longest line through the massive roof. 'Excellent'.

Start: Start up the corner and slab on the left hand side of the Grease Cave.

FA: Rob Lebreton, 1992

28 ** Thommo Slips It In Sport 20m

Links Top one Thommo into 'Slip It In'. Apparently you traverse right out of TOT before its crux, and then finish up the redpoint crux of SII.


FA: Dave Filan, 1992

29 Pass The Tissues Sport 8m

FA: Garth Miller, 1994


A savage little number with a very hard crux.

FA: Steve Bullen, 1994


FA: Garth Miller, 1994

29 ** Slip It In Sport 15m

FA: Steve Bullen, 1991

27 ** Caught In The Act Sport 15m

Given 27 in the 2011 Nowra guide.

FA: Graham Fairbairn, 1992

26 * Lost Weekends Sport 15m

FA: Giles Bradbury & Ant Prehn, 1991

25 * Lust for Life Sport 7m

Link-up with good (but safe) air potential.

Start: Start as for 'Lost Weekends'.

FA: Simon Atkins, 1995

28 ** Lost Virginity Sport 20m

An old Wishart project.

Start: As for 'Lost Weekend' then out the roof on the flake.

FA: S.Gardner, 2006

27 * Love Bug Sport 10m

FA: Stuart Wyithe, 1992

31 ** Sexy Is The Word Sport 10m

Relatively easy climbing to a desperate boulder problem crux (~V9). Most of the recent ascentionists use a different (easier) crux sequence to the original ascentionists and the grade might be coming down soon.

FA: Rob Lebreton, 1992

28 Sexy Skin Trash Sport 15m

Link Up - Start up Sexy is the word, cross though skin to skin and finish up 'White Trash'

FA: Matt Adams, 2000

32 *** Stamp Tramp Sport 16m

As for either WT or SITW. If beginning up WT, trend leftwards to join the traverse on skin to skin, get your ass up to the cave at the chain on top of SITW. From here wind the biceps up and punch out along the roof flake until a chain anchor around the lip. Could be the best roof climb in Australia. Awesome!!!

Start: Up either White Trash or Sexy Is The Word.

FA: Zac Vertrees, 2007


White Trash into Tramp Stamp via the project bolts.Then just keep on trucking. Slightly harder version of Tramp Stamp original.

FA: Tom O'Halloran, 2014

FA: Stuart Wyithe, 1992

27 ** White Trash Sport 10m

FA: George Fieg, 1993

Galvanic corrosion=no thanks.

FA: Julian Saunders & Simon Atkins, 1992

17 * Bitter Lemon Sport 6m

FA: Sue Young & Catherine Eadie, 1991

Start: Up the left hand corner in the alcove.

FA: G Hill This is Frig the Pig

FA: G Hill

21 * Fuck The Duck Sport 18m

Start: As for FTP. In the corner.

FA: G Hill


FA: Mike Ellims, 1989

A push over for the grade. Soft as slime.

FA: Graeme Hill, 1992

17 ** Bullwinkle Sport 15m
