Access issues inherited from Townsville

Most areas are free to access to the public, some are closed for short times during the year due to car, bike and running races and other events such as flooding, bush fires or land slides after heavy rain. but they will open again soon after.

Ethic inherited from Townsville

Marking the rock at the start of the climbs used to be the norm, this is now frowned apon

Start off the block as for MA, technical moves off ledge then a brilliant punchy finish through awesome steep pockets.

FFA: Chris Beric/Steve Ioannou, 2013

Start as for Rampage. Head R at first bolt then up through overhanging corner. Rest ledge then trend L for fantastic finish below roof.

FFA: Chris Beric/Steve Ioannou, 2013

Starts about 5m R of MA. Perfect little sport route with some lovely pockets. Start off block, up orange wall on good holds to final tricky bulge. It’s a nice grade 21 warm-up to 6th bolt. 7 Ubolts.

FFA: Neil Monteith, 2009

Stellar, continuous climbing. 2m R of C. Up to overlap and past orange seam. Tough traverse directly L past second last bolt and up to rooflet (final bolt). Onwards to anchors. 60m rope and 12 draws required.

FFA: Lee Cujes, 2009

Sustained technical face climbing. Starts just left of cave edge, 2m left of White Gold. Bouldery start then blocky bulges to little right traverse to finish at anchors over last bulge. 9 U-bolts.

The extension to Metalcious via heinous mantle then intense gastons.

FA: Neil Monteith, 2009

FFA: Chris Beric, 2011

Funky steep arête on the left edge of the Hyperbowl cave. Finish left past bolt 6 to join Metalicious and lower from that routes anchor. 7 U-bolts.

FA: Neil Monteith, 2009

Gobsmackingly good climbing that links an impressive line up a subtle arête, roof and overhung headwall. Very pumpy. Don't fall off on the last move!

FA: Neil Monteith, 2012

Start as for WG but head straight up and onto the slab. climb through the unrelenting steepness on pinches and jugs to join the last bolt of AD.

FFA: Steve Ioannou, 2013

Large open corner on the left of the cave. Start on the raised ground at a corner. Stick clip the first and only bolt to gain large jugs and gear. Move left before extruded block to easy moves and more gear. Straight up, then move R to single rap ring.

FFA: Steven Ioannou, Chris Beric & Christopher Glastonbury, 2005

Extension to Fairy Dust. From anchor move up and L through steep roof to CW anchor.

FFA: Steve Ioannou/Chris Glastonbury/Chris Beric, 2013

FFA: Steven Ioannou, 2017

Start up Fairy Dust, then follow arching crack with committing moves on Natural pro. Large gear useful. Finish above pod below anchor of Townsvillians. Anchor yet to be installed.

FFA: Chris Glastonbury, 2012

Steep cave climbing on big holds. Start 2m right of Fairy Dust. Up wall to under roof (knee bar here!) then out left across roof to anchors. Overhangs 5m. 6 U-bolts.

FA: Neil Monteith, 2009

FFA: Steven Ioannou, 2016

Beginning 15m R of FD, climb the steep orange slopers. Finish at anchor below roof.

FA: Steven Ioannou & Christopher Glastonbury, 2006

Start up Revenge of the Pixies for two bolts, then break L and up through juggy ever-steepening terrain. An awkward step L under the roof gives the remarkably trad-like finish. Add a star if you like jamming. Overhangs 8m. 10 bolts.

FFA: Lee Cujes, 2009

As for Townsvillians, but go straight up, then punch R with mind blowing scoops to a rest below roof. Breach the roof, and desperately undercling your way right to anchor. Overhangs 10m. 13 bolts.
