Waterworks is the central crag of Hobart and after a stint in the ugly corner has come out looking quite good. Why? As of 2009 the place has been given a total overhaul with a chest high fence with a gate just for climbers provided by the HCC. It has a flat area in front of the cliff for the kids to play which is a rare treat for family climbers, and finally, almost all routes have been retro bolted as of 2009 - well that is as safe as you can be on quarried rock. You can now safely do a few routes after uni or work and be home for tea.
The trade route for the place is Serial Driller (21). I quite like, Death Unto Racist (20) and Bastard Cancer (21), both soft touches but fun climbing. Paul Prichard is a resident climber and in early 2010 he added a climb near Jesus Built My Hammer Drill (18). It is great to see that such a fine climber is out there adding to the Hobart scene.
It's marvelous to have a city crag where mates can meet and you don’t have to haul your ass to get to. I would love to know who has done all the routes here in a day? A reasonable challange for the gym buffed boys and girls. Check it out.
