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 https://sydneyrockies.org.au/rebolting/

Ethic inherited from Illawarra

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

History

View historical timeline

The first three routes here adopted the crag name and theme of "Ken'n'Barbie Land", but unfortunately this got ignored by subsequent developers.

Grade Route

The first route here.

FA: Will Monks, Andrew Duckworth & Peter Monks, 1999

FA: Andrew Duckworth, 1999

Giles Bradbury was called in to free either this line or Seven Eleven at grade 25 in mid-late 1999 and he named it Teflon Barbie.

FA: David Brown, 2000

A wall for the slope specialist. Deserves more ascents to keep it clean but probably won’t get em until people stop worrying about the grade!

Start: The next route right of SE.

FA: G Hill

Similar climbing although not so desperate.

Start: Right of CJ.

Route name changed at the request of the first ascentionist.

FA: G Hill

You guessed it crimping and slope slapping at its best.

Start: Next line right of PS

Hard 22

FA: G Hill

A little more reasonable still hard enough to have fun on.

Start: Next right of TCTS.

Hard last move

FA: V Hill

A lot better in that its hard in places. Do not let that put you off think strong and its easy.

Start: Yep right again from T.

FA: G Hill

  1. 23m (22)

FA: John Koster, 1999
