If you have benefited from climbing infrastructure in NSW, please consider making a donation towards maintenance costs. The Sydney Rockclimbing Club Rebolting Fund finances the replacement of old bolts on existing climbs and the maintenance of other hardware such as fixed ropes and anchors. The SRC purchases hardware, such as bolts and glue, and distributes them to volunteer rebolters across the state of New South Wales. For more information, including donation details, visit

Grade Route

Steep start then up seam just right of arete. At the cave, head right (BR). Take care with pro.

Start: Left arete of nice orange wall.

Marked. Bouldery start (BR) then move past 2nd BR to break. easy going to the top.

Start: 3m left of the corner.

Start as for 'Positive Ape Factor' but at the point it veers R, instead head L passed 3 RBs to join 24. Can use a cam if you feel the need. Free to somebody with strong fingers. Please note though, somebody from the old days (decades ago) did chip this route, so its not pure. I can remove the bolts if people don't want it.

Easy up the cracks then a huge reach to horizontal break. Take care up the final corner - it's quite hard and runout.

Start: Below obvious orange corner.

Up PAF to right leading flake. Out flake past bolt.

Start: As for PAF.

An old carrot line project, rebolted with rings 3m left of 'Daily Grind'. Closed Project Tim Mayer

Technical and runout. New button head bolts, careful with hangers (just replace with U's or rings one day). Start: Marked.

Plenty of good protection - med/large cams and nut placements in the top half.

Nice moves with good little crux. 3RB to anchors.

Stay left = 19.
