Up in the fern garden. Looks hard and junk with stupid bolt placements.

FA: Veronique Hill, 1999

Very hard for the grade (was 18). Left of orange streak and rooflet. Hard start, gets easier the higher you get.

FA: Mark Woodard, 1999

Hard traverse in from way left, then up right of the orange streak.

FA: Veronique Hill, 1999

Start below flake.

FA: Mark Woodard, 1999

Totally underated. Great fun climbing up the slopey scoops.

FA: G Hill Fat Mark

Sweety your a goddess! Heard one day at 'The Freezer' when two women climbers were complaining to each other about the names of 'Nowra' Climbs.

FA: Graeme Hill

A great line (with a bit of a kink). Some quite hard long moves.

FA: Graeme Hill

Start on right side of cavey thing.

FA: Graeme Hill, 1999

Up start of chunk then the line of bolts. Hard move low down followed by just hard moves the rest of the way. probably 26 as i could do the moves. Got my shoulder operated on after this one.

Set by Graeme Hill, 1999

Probably 24, but the best climb at the grade at TP. Up past drill bit stuck in rock, to cave for rest, then straight up the awesome wall.

FA: Graeme Hill, 1998

FA: Rod Young & Ant Prehn, 1994

Totally cool route through steep territory. Great value.

Start: Start on the far right edge of the wall by stepping onto the pocketed wall.

FA: Graeme Hill, 1999

Easier finish of Spank the Donkey. Good juggy steep climbing the whole way. Climb StD to 6th bolt and rest stance in small cave. Go straight up on the right side of the arête on mega jugs and easy wall to finish.

FA: Rob Fryer, Bob McMillan & Cerin McMillan, 1998

Short line of bolts to ledge. Junk !
