Summary

Climbing at Bee Vee will make climbing anywhere else seem great.

Description

An old slate quarry of mostly loose, chalky and thinly-bedded rock. The wall is close to vertical. There are no fixed anchors at the top and the nearest useful tree, bush or boulder is at least 100m from the edge. Star droppers may be useful but the ground is rocky.

Access issues

It would be council land. There is an ancient "Keep Out" sign near the road.

Approach

Driving north through Burra, look for the obvious cutting through the hill on your right before the golf course turn off. 3 minute walk to climbs.

Where to stay

Burra

Ethic

The fixed protection is either rusty old carrots or huge metal spikes (presumably used for aid).

History

The climbs were 'established' by 'Dave Jennings' which may be a nom de plume to save someone's climbing career.
