Description

Small number of problems scattered along the coastline on various outcrops on soft to good quality sandstone.

A lot of one move wonder mantle problems around, with a handful of climbs that actually go up more than a metre. Everything has been scouted between the beach access to the north back to the established carpark. Could squeeze in one or two more around what's already here, especially at 'Crumbly Characters' or 'Pillar Of Stinky Fish'

Access issues inherited from Flying Fish Point

The north crag is within National Park boundaries so all rules need to be followed regarding this. Most areas only accessible at low tide as base of problems will be submerged during high tide.

Approach

Navigate to Flying Fish Point from Innisfail and head north out of town and park at -17.481145,146.077199. From here walk North along the beach and you'll reach the first problem, the rest north from here.

Ethic inherited from Flying Fish Point

No chipping holds, no marking the start of problems, clean up your rubbish which includes finger tape and orange peels and take out whatever else you find even if it's not yours.

Scouted and some problems established by Nick Murphy in May 2020 while trying to find the next best thing in Innisfail. This was not it.

Stand start on the chockstone, use small pockets to head straight up and slightly left over the void to top out. Not that good.

FA: Nick Murphy, 4 May

Kind of soft sandstone (a lot crumbled away on FA) but not terrible, just test your holds first. Stand start at base of wall, make your way straight up tallest part of the wall to the left of the central crack. Descend to the left.

FA: Nick Murphy, 4 May

Sit start at base of arete, pull up, stand up, grab the top, easy mantle over.

FA: Nick Murphy, 4 May

Sit start at base of left facing arete, pull up through jugs, stop when you reach the vegetation and jump down.

FA: Nick Murphy, 4 May

Sit start on the sand on jugs and head straight up to the right of 'The Ol' Thongsight Ascent'. Stop when you get to the vegetation and jump down.

FA: Nick Murphy, 4 May

Sit on the boulder at the base, grab the left hand arete and jugs up the face till you have both hands on the top, then climb back down. Watch out for fish hooks on the base boulder, First Ascender caught two in the hand the day it was done.
