* Torrens Shops - lumpy brick wall

The side wall of the Torrens shops is a good bet for those on the south side. There was more of the same - an earth retaining wall below the old servo adjacent, but a rain storm collapsed it.

National Library - Front Wall

The front wall of the national library facing Questacon

** National Library - Main Wall

At 2.2m high and from 5 to 50m in length, the bottom tier of rough hewn basalt is generally traversed - but some choose to set hard diagonal rising mini routes with sit starts. It's likely that some people wouldn't appreciate the chalk patina that develops over the drier months and no one is really sure how the activity is viewed amongst Library management so please stay away from the front entrance area. The Lakeside walls are fantastic on a summers afternoon when the easterly breeze arrives.

V3 National Library - Left short wall

On the side facing Lake Burley Griffin is the first short wall in between the main wall and the stairs. Can be climbed in either direction, though left to right seems more difficult.

* National Library - Middle short wall

On the side facing Lake Burley Griffin is the short wall in front of the the stairs.

Boulder 2m
V7 * National Library - Right wall

The furthest right (West) wall facing the lake. Good and quite hard climbing on small crimps.

Using only the fourth row of blocks for hands (approx head height), traverse the full wall from left to right (~ 30 m).

There is a very good hold just under halfway along. From the start to here is probably ~V5. From here to the end is probably ~V6. The whole thing is probably ~V7.

National Library - Far Wall

The mega endurance wall on the back side of the Library facing Commonwealth Ave

ANU
Archives Wall

Directly above Parkes Way as it tunnels under the ANU is the Noel Butlin Archives Centre - just outside this, on the north eastern side at the end of Balmain Cres is a long cemented basalt retaining wall that offers a sustained traverse or if you are really sure about youself, some highball solo's ... be careful, little bits of render give way quite suddenly. To access it ride or walk there via the east/west lake cycle path. It is just off the path on the very steep pinch as it goes over the Acton Peninsular.

Boulder
Le Couteur Building retaining wall

On the lake side of the Le Couteur Building, Research School of Physical Sciences, below Mills Rd, is a high retaining wall - one of the first built structures climbed in the ACT. It has largely been forgotten but it is still there with the same hard edgy problems which are much more accessible now that the ivy has been stripped away. Do your part - climb and prune!

Menzies Library

Pretty easy, and I doubt security likes it much, but I've never been moved off it
