The Torture Chamber

  • Grade context: AU
  • Ascents: 5




This section of the cliff so far has the most condensed area of climbing, with each climb 5m to 10m apart. Has shade first thing in the morning till about 11am. All climbs top out to the ledges at the base of the watch tower and you can either rap off the tree above Bat Shit Crazy or follow the fixed line into the gully and back around to the base off the cliff to get back down. Most of the climbs need here need a number 5 or 6 BD cams and big bros that are big then a 6, plus your standard rack.

All the climbs in this area have very interesting tales behind their ascents, not every thing goes! Smooth going into the unknown! But in saying that no one got too badly hurt. ;p There were many laughs, stories, beers at the pub and carrying way too much gear up the mountain into this wall, every one involved has had a lot of fun and hope you enjoy the adventure.

A glorious chimney followed by a gymnastics style hand jam through a bulge. Bonus points if you can do it without grunting! Finish left to small tree for belay and escape via scramble further up left. Stays in shade all day!

Hard to get established in the crack, once in groan and grunt your way up the off-width past two obvious crux's to ledges then up faint hand crack to tree belay.

Start up the obvious finger crack behind the flake just to the right of Who are you Biggeden, Follow it to a small ledge then trend left entering the offwidth, continue up until you can pull yourself up and over the large chockstone at the top of the crack. To tree belay.

Up chimney to tricky exit. Walk up the slab to finish up a corner crack.
