Rick's Cafe





A slick white wall with a different climbing style to the other areas, mostly climbing on pockets and large flat edges. Some of the best rock at TJF.

BOLTING IS BANNED to the left (south) of the lookout and 100m right of the lookout as this is National Park land. Please avoid climbing on the cliff directly under the lookout, not only will you probably get a rock or beer bottle thrown at you from the tourists, you'll also attract unwanted attention from the authorities! Do not build new rock cairns - apparently there is an $11,000 fine if you do.


In the middle of the Amazon jungle, roughly the middle of the entire TJF cliffline. Walk down past Chunder's Glen and keep following the cliff left past a bit of a scramble down and past some chossy walls to find this grid bolted crag. Routes are described from right to left.

Lots of bolts in this region. Most development has been done after the 1980s.

hurly burly go the underclings!!

A proud line that shares the start with 'Double Decaf' but when DD goes left BL goes rightish, stay direct thru the awesome bulges. The 2016 guide has Emporium in a similar position.

Takes a diagonal line left, then through the overlaps. Hard one to onsight!

Tricky moves to start then power up thru 3 little rooves.

FA: Bundy, 2008

A fun little route that you do more for the moves and the great little holds than the mountain wilderness experience, hence the close bolts.

Start: As for Short Black on the really great orange rock.

The left most route on the crag.Tough crux, with some funky , committing moves, pick a day with good friction.
