Grade Route

Starts up Rootasaurus Rex and takes the thin wall on the left.

FA: Mark Woodard, 1999

Sustained face climbing!

Crimp your way up the wall tending slightly to the left to the crux at 2/3s height. Take care getting to the anchors.

Start: Start just by big tree.

FA: Graeme Hill

Start 7m right of the Fossil Cave directly behind the 2nd large Blue Gum. Pull up hard and step right with care before good climbing to finishing jugs.

FA: John Hawkins-Salt, 1994

Was way mossy when first climbed as the winges on the neighbouring climbs didn't like getting covered in brush leavings. Will clean up after fifty or sixty deserving ascents.

Start: As for Itsa.

FA: G Hill

FA: not known; G Hill This is 12" Release

Hard start (stick clip the 2nd bolt if your not solid) that leads into nice wall climbing with a bit of a move at the bulge.

FA: Jason Lammers, 15 Jun 2013

Up Sidetrack for 2 bolts then move left past another bolt and then into BB. With a less cranky start, it will probably be more popular than BB.

FA: Jason Lammers, 5 Jun 2013

Brown Bear into Sidetrack. First 3 bolts of Brown bear before traversing into Sidetrack and finish as for it.

A classic easy 20

FA: John Hawkins-Salt, 1994

Bit harder than Sidetrack, but just as good !

FA: John Hawkins-Salt, 1994

not even a 19

FA: Graeme Hill, 1998

The left route

FA: John Koster, 1997

The direct line between Sloth and EbtW, goes all the way to the top of the cliff. Watch that rope !!

FA: Rick Phillips & Jason Lammers, 24 Jun 2012

The right route

FA: John Hawkins-Salt, 1994

FA: Unknown, 2000

Start 5m right of “Sloth” on top of the massive flake. Quite stiff for the grade.

FA: John Hawkins-Salt, 1994

FA: Graeme Hill, 1999

Right most route on this wall. Dont fall off clipping the 3rd bolt. Better than its neighbour..

FA: G Hill, 2000

Around the corner there is some more routes. Three Bloody Roofs and Nowra-cised are a good double.

Left of 3BR. Ride the flake with a big move after the 2nd bolt. Rad !!
