Description

This is one of the steepest pieces of choss in Hobart. Limited potential, but with a lot of work some more problems could be done.

Approach

From the entrance of Waterworks Reserve, drive in to park at the bottom of the second reservoir. Walk up the sealed R4 fire trail until the water tanks. Follow the top fence of the tanks, then the track for another 50m down and around to the cave.

Grade Route

Start with RH undercling and LH side pull. Climb up through the steeper section of the wall.

Start on the large sandy jugs and traverse out leftwards on crimps.

Sit start the series of edges through steep ground on the right side of the cave. Might have lost some holds since the first ascent, looks hard.

Steep line of big moves between good holds to the left of Circles.

Sit start below the circles on the right side of the wall.

Stand start at Circles and traverse left along the line of jugs and out along the lip of the cave. Top it out, but watch for the hollow sounding jug.
