Summary

Convenient if you live nearby and need to lay hand to rock

Description

A tuff retaining wall behind Freedom furniture off Newmarket/Bowen Bridge roads. There are some poorly bolted (one with an aluminium hanger!) small routes and a few ok looking natural lines. While the climbing is actually pretty good in places, the location is a big drawback and any bolts are not to be trusted.

Access issues

Behind a shopping centre, above a driveway. Owners/security staff (if any) may not be psyched to see climbers. Watch out for cars and trucks. Only bother if it's after hours to avoid problems.

Approach

Drive to Freedom furniture, catch a train to Windsor station, or rock up anyway you can

Ethic

Chipping seemed to be the norm here back in the day. No longer is that acceptable anywhere. It may be that stabilisation works will one day cover most of the rock here; some areas have already been sprayed with shotcrete recently

History

Someone desperate for FA's long ago bolted and chipped a bit of rock. Some information was available online years ago, so if anyone still has any info, do share.
