Access issues inherited from Statham's Quarry

The gravel road into the quarry runs off Ridge Hill Road and has a combination-locked gate (normally locked), the code to which can be obtained from the Department of Parks and Wildlife on 9290 6100. The quarry is also easily accessible on foot after parking on the closest corner when driving down the Zig Zag road. Don't leave valuables in the car.

FA: 2013

3m left of Penguin Master. See Statham's Quarry Mini Guide by Neil Gledhill.

A long route on chossy rock.

The second bolt is "fat", standard bolt plates don't fit.

Route is now bolted (6-May-2014)

Move left after the last bolt.

Climb Kid Rock all the way to the anchor, and then just keep traversing left to the anchors of Stolen Glory, clipping one of the bolts of the anchors of Bonking Penguins along the way. Fun traverse at the top may increase the grade of Kid Rock a bit, but beware of how dirty and lose the top is — make sure the belayer has a helmet.

FA:

Top anchor, two hangers, not visible from the ground.

FA: late 60s; Michael Adams & Bill Kershaw

3 bolts protect the lower slab with natural pro at the top. Two bolts with rap rings.

Starts 2m to the right of flyleaf

FA: 2007
