Description:© (Pat61)

Start: In the middle of the wall about five metres right of 'The Entertainer'

Up bulging weakness and pockets (very pumpy to get good gear in) to left-facing flake system that leads to dark overlap. Through this then up wall trending right. Move R rather than going straight up final corner. Rap anchors.

Ethic: inherited from Arapiles

Mount Arapiles is first and foremost a trad climbing area. The few sport climbs tend to be in the higher grades where no natural pro is available.

Bolting, particularly retro-bolting, is discouraged and should only be undertaken after extensive consultation with the local climbers, first ascensionists, etc. Inappropriately placed bolts have been chopped.

Do not chip the rock.

Look after the park.

  • Stick to the paths.

  • Don't disturb the wildlife.

  • Routes near peregrine falcon nesting sites are closed in the spring.

  • Minimise the impact of your camping (fuel stoves not fires, take your rubbish with you, etc).
