Access issues inherited from New South Wales and ACT

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

A few long draws required, backjump or second to clean.

FA: lloyd wishart

The steep overhanging crack on the left side of the cave.

Start: left hand line in the big cave 30m right of 'The Mantle Machine'.

FA: Giles Bradbury, 1980

Hard powerful climbing on an 'industrial' medium.

Start: 2m right of 'Soap'.

Warning: Would be wary of climbing on the first three carrot bolts currently, all rusty and third is hanging out a long way

Another route from the industrial revolution.

Start: 1m right of 'Dingo'

Climb through steep terrain to finish at the anchors of Raisin' Hell.

Potential bad fall in to ledge around the 3rd bolt - don't blow it! belayers stay sharp! funky moves upside down and behind the head...

Start: 2m right of Raisin' Hell

As for Luv Handles, then step out across the void and continue 7m along the lip of the cave to finish at the lonely chain. Guaranteed to give you a whole body pump.

From the anchors of luv handles, follow the rail to the centre of the roof (crux) to reach mushroom jug then joins up the best bits on Timmy time.

FA: Adrian & Tim Osborne, 3 Jul
