Grade Route Gear style Popularity Crag
Trad
18 Silent Running

Follow the prominent hand sized crack 2 meters right of bolted line The Bummer. Traditional gear protects you until you hit a sole bolt as you move through the face climbs of the head wall.

MH: Note that the bolt has no hangar or nut as of 2021. I'm also not convinced it is on this line - seems a bit far to the right, closer to Heat and Dust? A direct finish above the crack looks feasible (but currently dirty) and would come up about 1 meter right of the anchor bolts on Vandalous Behaviour.

22 Close Suspects

A leaning corner above the water at the lefthand end.

Top rope 10m Canberra
20 Downward Bound

Thin crack just left of the large dark overhang near the waters edge, ~3 m left of Romance in Cow Paddocks.

Top rope 10m Canberra
20 Romance in Cow Paddocks

Climb up to the niche beneath the overhang, then left and up.

18 Prosthetics

The undercut corner, then a small rooflet and up the left-facing corner above. Starts at the left side of the rockfall scar, 5 meters right of Downward Bound. Double anchor bolts on the top of the prow.

Top rope 15m Canberra
20 Blurred Vision

A substantial rockfall in 2017 removed most of the original first half of this climb. The route is still climbable although may have some loose rock and dirt for a while.

Start on the undercut wall behind the tree. Up the wall (leave the poor tree alone) to a ledge. Up the groove, then left onto the arete and up. A good finish on big buckets.

Top rope 13m Canberra
15 The Hanging Garden

In the heavily vegetated corner. Easily up wall to the ledge, then up the bottomless chimney. Not done much these days...

Top rope 11m Canberra
20 Robot Monster

A body length of good moves. Climb up to the ledge, then up the right wall of the chimney to another ledge then finish up to the right.

Top rope 12m Canberra
20 Dead Fish Crack

Start at the left end of the main wall beneath the lookout, a couple of meters right of the corner. Head up and left on the ramp, pulling through onto the wall above past an old piton, and up through the flared hand crack. Above here it trends up and right to the bolted anchor shared with Standing Room Only.

Caution:
The hold on the top headwall is moving a little, and is fairly large. It will likely fail at some point soon.
Top rope 13m Canberra
21 Standing Room Only

Start left of the small tree beneath a rooflet. Sustained face climbing the whole way, with a difficult crux, leads to a roof guarding the anchors. When pulling the roof, be gentle with the jugs, which have some fracture lines - belayer take precautions.

Top rope 13m Canberra
22 Scrofula

Marked with a faded "S" and starts a meter or so left of Closed Circuit beneath a vertical groove. Nominally follows the vauge groove, then right for a few moves, then finish straight up. Arbitrary and challenging to find moves that aren't part of Standing Room Only or Closed Circuit.

Top rope 13m Canberra
20 Closed Circuit

Start is marked with a white "CC" beneath the blunt arete to the left of the large overhang. Move from out under the starting rooflet then continue up the arete with some tricky moves to get onto the face above.

Top rope 11m Canberra
19 Charlotte Sometimes

The corner crack running up the left side of the the large overhang, approximately 1 meter right of Closed Circuit and using a few holds on the arete.

Top rope 11m Canberra
23 Charlotte Sometimes Variant Finish

Step right from the corner once you are above the overhang and climb the groove up and right.

Top rope 11m Canberra
19 Robbins Memorial Route

Climb the arete beneath the central crack in the large overhang, 3 meters right of Charlotte Sometimes. Traverse left beneath the roof and finish up Charlotte Sometimes.

Top rope 13m Canberra
22 Extremely Anal

Up the arete beneath the roof, then reach through to jam the crack and make a few bouldery moves to transition into a layback on the wide section, before face climbing to the top.

Top rope 13m Canberra
20 Vermin Man vs Sludge Monster

A boulder problem consisting of a short rising traverse leftwards to the overhang.

Top rope 3m Canberra
24 Uncut Pork

A bouldery start bear hugging the arete leads to the minor rooflet. Move into the sweet right-facing flake, catch your breath, then tackle some sustained and technical climbing all the way to the bolted anchors. Keep looking left for your holds. Looks like the anchors have clips.

Top rope 12m Canberra
23 Missionary Positions

Strenuous climbing up the small corner. Head left to the flake and layaways. Finish left as for Extremely Anal.

Top rope 13m Canberra
23 Missionary Positions Direct Finish

Continue up from the corner and slightly right to a jug just below The Bummer, then traverse left on big holds.

Top rope 13m Canberra
17 Vandalous Behaviour

Up the wall on small toes and crimps just right of The Bummer, trying to stay off the corner, up to a two-bolt anchor.

Top rope 13m Canberra
18 Heat and Dust

The once-brushed line a few meters right of Silent Running.

MH: Definitely very dirty with thick lichen at the top in 2021. Tried to avoid using the crack further right. A trad anchor can be constructed using the crack at the back of the upper vegetated ledge - needs a small wire, a smallish cam, and maybe a sling for the little tree if you're desperate for more?

Top rope 12m Canberra
16 The Bummer Direct Finish

Follow The Bummer directly up to the ledge, then straight up over a mantle on obvious holds to the anchor of Vandalous Behaviour.

Top rope 14m Canberra
Sport
14 The Bummer

Follows the stepped, right-facing corner, passing several ring bolts, before moving left past a couple of fixed hangers to double-bolted rings at the top.
