One of the newer sport climbing areas in Adelaide. Picturesque setting by the river, nice sunny aspect (although you'll melt in summer.) You can expect the occasional loose or wobbly block - bring your helmet.©
Most routes have lower-offs.©
Still under development. If you see bolts and it’s not in the guide it’s probably a closed project.©

Start standing on stalagmite & head up following bolts on layaway's & slopers. Move into heal hook rest under small roof. At 4th BR, move right to flat jug and rest, then up to final overlap and cut back left into final headwall. Has now been climbed direct past the 4th making the route a lot better.

Climb all of Stalagmite Addiction Direct to above its chain and continue left across the technical hanging slab to a good rest. Clip roof bolt (now easier since FA) and launch out to lip, then up short headwall to the anchor. 10 bolts to the chain. Extend 5th with a long draw, 7th, 8th, 9th and 10th with slings and skip clipping the Addiction chain. To clean: Lower off top anchor and tramline to 1st chain, thread and clean remainder.
FA: Steve Kelly, 20th Dec
A masterpiece bolted by Ross Meffin, now re-equipped. Chain still requiring attention. THE best route of its grade in the Adelaide region. Supremely sustained with a hard start on slopers leading to your choice of wild dyno or big lock-off further up. Don't blow the finish!
FA: Sharik Walker, 1999
The route just left of 'Battery Acid'. Climb up face until first overhang section. Climb boldly through overhang on blades until bridging becomes possible. Technical balance required to get through next section. Climb diagonally right around arete and onto face & finish at chains on 'Battery Acid'.
Belay note: route is still cleaning up. Stand on the rock platform under the line of Battery Acid to avoid any falling debris.
