The upper tier boasting the best this area has to offer

Access issues inherited from The Sunlounge

On the main sundeck beware the drop off directly behind you, it is easy to become excited at the sheer awe of this place but remember safety, there may be people on the lower tier we dont want them getting squashed with falling bodies

Grade Route

The first section of cliffs you get to, on your left while you are scrambling down the gully.

self confessed as tasmanias most prolific retro bolter, overhung sandstone..., supposedly it bulges

FA: Roger Parkyn

one of the best lines of its grade at Sand river, RP said and i quote "That was fucking awesome" has to be telling you something, get on it.

Start up the dordle warmup slab, traverse right following the large scoop and blast your way up the final pillar headwall, There is a fixed cable draw at the start of the traverse to assist with cleaning should you make it to the top, be sure to clip into it on the way back down. definitely worth the walk here.

The direct finish to nuovi pitoni past the shrubbery


Up the crack to the third bolt then follow the rising traverse out to the arete, then up, be sure to clip the post added hanger to protect you from an akward swing should you fall. short bouldery.

climb the obvious corner cool moves nice warmup fun climbing

FA: GAZ, Dec 2018

Some unique holds and an awkward exit out of the scoopy weakness characterise this line. Quality and grade still a matter of debate.

Roger claimed an easy one around the corner. Climbs the right side of the arete on the right end of the main sun lounge.

FA: Roger Parkyn, Dec 2018

The upper tier continues with this slab, walk over from Photon, it's about 50m right and slightly uphill. Gets sun after 3pm in summer.

Follow the railway track seams up the left side of the Afternoon Wall.

The daddy of em all

The rh finish to project DJ, at the break traverse out to the arete and head on up, beyond the 2nd bolt after the traverse the rock becomes ordinary, but the position is great. i have opted to allow everyone an opportunity to become a part of history and clean some of this route really become a part of the development, it has been suggested red handled brushes from bunnings are the best i shall leave one at the bottom of the route until it is no longer required. great climbing ordinary finish some will love it
