The Tubes

Don't climb on the sea side of the gully, too many fishermen.

14 Fire When Ready

Follow the dark grey splotch straight up the wall. Grade may be off, I'm not a route climber (boulderer, sue me...), just going on other things I've solo'd around here.


Set of carrots on top. No info on grade.

Outer Tubes Gully

Easy access, family friendly in an awesome area. Good idea to wear a helmet at least while belaying in case any loose stuff comes away, it is a newish cliff in a sea environment.

Outer Tubes Gully
16 Half Mast

The left most route as you arrive after the scramble down the descent gully. Thankfully stops before the band of choss is encountered. Short and fun warm up.

17 Captain Barnacles

2nd route on the wall as you face the cliff. Great climbing with the exception of one band of choss. Great holds all the way up.

15 The Red Bean

Great easy, pockets, edges, jugs and layaways, best easy route here

19 Tumbles

Lovely climbing down low between some positive crimps at the crux, jugs to the anchors, you can think your way through the cruxes

19 Loose Lips Sink Ships

Slightly powerful at the start to great climbing up high

19 Friend or Foe

Usual weekend and school holiday access only

18 Fashion Tights

Just great climbing

17 Mixing Fashion with Fun

Up shallow corner crack line (grade 12) on the right of Fashion Tights. Up crack line to ledge then step left and finish up the last 3 bolts of Fashion Tights

Deep Water Face

Fun deep water solo area on good rock with plenty of potential.

Deep Water Face
18 Hairy Pores

Committing heel up to nice sun baking ledge... Jump when ready

16 Dolphin Watch

Easy climbing, crux is finding good rock at the start closer to the water

19 Diffusion

Conquer the overhang via some fun layback moves. When at the comfortable ledge take a deep breath and use the finger crack to go a bit higher.

17 Second Thought

Up the left face of the arete to the obvious ledge, then bombs away.
