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

On the left hand side of the wall. Sit start on some jugs, then traverse left around the corner. Go up the slab on good holds.

Start as for 2 but head left onto the slab.

Start in the higher of the two breaks on the left of the wall. Do a big move right to a big, frictiony, pocket. Climb up to very small, sharpish edge on the arete and on to the top. An excellent problem.

Stand start and up in between 2 and 3.

Start on the big break that is in the middle of the wall. Climb diagonally left and up on jugs and incut edges to a harder top. Probably the best problem on the wall.

This one is an eliminate but is included because it has a name. Start on the big break in the centre of the wall. Go left hand to the two finger pocket. Then up to the big slopey, pocket feature. Then go up to the 'toilet bowl' and mantle. A good problem.

Another Toilet Bowl eliminate. Stay right of the streak until the move to the bowl at the top.

Start just right of the big break on good holds. Go to a pocket and a good hold in the break. Go up trending right.
