Description

Shorter routes than other sectors, but a few absolute corkers. Also has a great trad wall (not yet in guide) for those fond of wiggly shit.

Access issues inherited from Mt Ninderry

Mt Ninderry is an access sensitive area. Please car pool to minimise parking problems. Recent change of access. Please NO LONGER access Mt Ninderry from Tinarra Close (the War Memorial access). Use Ocean Vista Drive (yes, the access used in previous years) using the same gate and tracks as in the past, as the land is now under Sunshine Coast Council ownership as part of the Mt. Ninderry reserve. Use the turning circle at the end of the road and park up on the grass verge on the mountain side of the road only, spread cars out as much as possible. Don’t use the carparks in the turning circle. As always when climbing at Ninderry or anywhere, be respectful and low key. In particular, use quiet voices on arrival and on the walk-ins - noise travels. It is a residential neighbourhood, so we want to be good stewards of climbing in the area. The 20 min walk brings you out near Enter the Ninja arête.

Approach

Turn right 10m past the big boulder on the approach and walk around the eastern side of the mount for about 200m

Ethic inherited from Mt Ninderry

Wear a helmet, use a stick clip, be safe and tread lightly and quietly. Be careful of the grass trees and orchids. Don't impinge upon potential trad routes with new bolts. Respect tagged projects and the individuality of existing lines. And please dispose of human waste properly!

Access route for The Eastern Seaboard.

Closed

Start: 2m left of Lava Tube under cave. Slab for first 2 bolts into cave and 3rd FH. Get all tangled up getting to the 4th FH and turn the lip. Continues straight up to chains. 7 FHs

Great featured climbing up the scoop, then leftwards to the last bolt and anchors. Mind the tree.

FFA: Glenn

Up left side of cave to shared anchors.

Scramble over loose cave floor to the middle left side of the cave. Straight up the vertical mid cave and into the ledge. From the ledge it's straight through the roof to the lip of the cave and out on to the head wall. Extra bolt on ledge if you want but adds drag, runners advised

FA: Neil Jenman, 16 Dec

Stay off, Marked with red tape. Not finished.

Straight through the guts of the cave on big "Ninderry-solid" features. Excellent moderate roof climbing, despite the dirty start up the ledges.

First 2 bolts of Water Line then bust out left and up punching thru a few cruxes. Most excellent.

FFA: ross ferguson, 14 Sep 2017

Fun, pumpy, punchy climbing on great rock up the short steep wall.

Last line before the wall rounds the bend. Quality micro-route. Easy start, hard boulder problem direct through the shield, pumpy little finish. Height dependent and probably a grade easier if you’re 6ft+ and able to reach thru the crux.

Start off the terrace above the previous routes. Short and intense. Heel, toe, gut busting core. Turn the lip to the anchors (double bolts) however back cleaning required.

The arete as the track rounds the bend. Gets a bit dirty up high

Face right of arete. Shares last bolt and anchors with Bruce. Can also share 1st bolt with Bruce, but isn’t required. 5FHs, 6FHs if using Bruce’s first.

10min walk east of Sayonara Bitches along the cliff base, facing east. Stick clip first bolt. Start in centre left of cave and follow the obvious rib through the overhang onto the slightly hung headwall.
