A Crag Guide gives an extensive view of all sub areas and climbs at a point in the index. It shows a snapshot of the index heirachy, up to 300 climbs (or areas) on a single web page. It shows selected comments climbers have made on a recently submitted ascent.

At a minor crag level this should be suitable for printing and taking with you on a climbing trip as an adjunct to your guidebook.

1. Rosny Rocks 25 routes in Boulder

All Boulder

Long/Lat: 147.386028, -42.867619


Drive over the Tasman Bridge to Rosny. Just after you pass the shopping centre you will reach a roundabout. Turn left at this and continue past a couple sets of traffic lights, then turn right onto Quarry Road. Drive to the end of this road and park at the gate of Waverly Park. The boulders are visible up the hill on the left. Walk up the track for a few minutes and then turn left onto another track just before a large stump. This track goes pretty well straight to the boulders and takes about 5 minutes. Follow the line of boulders to the left to the obvious overhanging prow on the first topo. There are a few more easy problems on the aretes and slabs up to the left.

RouteGradeStyleSelected ascents
1 Easy pillar

Watch the loose chockstone

2 Arete then slab

Up the arete on pockets and rails.

3 * Arete right

Sit start with thin pockets and delicate feet, work up the arete along the rails on the lip traversing to the right. Avoid the big rail straight up the arete.

7 * V3

Highball - Sitstart at right side of overhang, up to slot then straight up the middle of the slab

8 ** 1st V4

Highball - Start as for previous, out to chipped jug, then straight up

9 Chipped

Highball - The steepest section of the overhang is very hard on small holds. The landing is pretty bad though, so a top rope may be prudent as the hardest moves are at the top. The Jacksons have managed to do this problem without using the chipped holds as 'a worthy statement against the absolutely crap chipping effort'.
