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


Park in Botanic Road. Caves are visible from the road.

Arete on the right side of the bloc to the left of Lover's Tiff.

Start as for Lover's Tiff but keep traversing left to top at the end of the cave.

As for Lovers Tiff but continue straight out to mantle out from the block.

Out left as for "Lovers Tiff Left" but then traverse the lip right and finish up "Lovers Tiff". Harder than "Lovers Tiff Left" but not V9.

Located in Lawry Plunkett Reserve. Start on jug near the LHS of obvious cave, move to pockets and through roof to finish above the start. Really cool campus crux.

FA: Chris Webb Parsons, 2007

A.K.A. Lover's Tiff Direct. Go straight out the roof from the start jug and link into the end of Lover's Tiff. Morpho as anything. Probably harder than this if you can't span the first move?
