Access issues inherited from Townsville

Most areas are free to access to the public, some are closed for short times during the year due to car, bike and running races and other events such as flooding, bush fires or land slides after heavy rain. but they will open again soon after.

Ethic inherited from Townsville

Marking the rock at the start of the climbs used to be the norm, this is now frowned apon

Start 5mL of Miranova, atop precarious pile of fractured blocks. Be sure to Pre clip first bolt! Quirky, powerful climbing. Finish at Necessary Evil Anchor

Link-up. The first 5m of Mira Nova into Maharaja and finish at the Necessary Evil anchors.

FFA: Marina Haintz & Steve Ioannou, 2014

FA: Chris Glastonbury & Chris Beric, 2012

Build a belay midway through pitch 3 of Mira Nova below the blood orange part of the short headwall. Climb up the headwall past horizontal breaks, then traverse R to weakness and ledge. Traverse R along the set of ledges to reach the top of Masters Apprentice. Escape via the chains.

FFA: Mark Gommers, Andrew Rule & Leia Clark, 2004

An upper pitch route. Starts at Miranova's first belay. Straight up, tending slightly L and following the bolts on slabby ground which ends up being pretty pumpy and feeling like a trad route towards the top. Great stance to clip anchor.

Subject of one of the biggest hype campaigns in climbing history. DO MAD AGENT!

FFA: Chris Beric & Chris Glastonbury, 2012

King line up crazy steep wall and brilliant jugs. Up scoop to jug pillar, then R and straight up featured fringe of looming RH Trench. Dont forget your kneebar pads!

FFA: Chris Beric/Steve Ioannou, 2012

Extension to Kneebar Nexus. Battle onward through final core intensive section. Break out onto steep juggy terrain some 50m off the deck. Power through top roof on superb holds to triumph atop Supernova Wall. Redirect through Kneebar nexus anchor to avoid being trapped dangling out in space.

FFA: Chris Beric/Chris Glastonbury/Steve Ioannou, 2013

An upper pitch route. Starts at Miranova's first belay. Up R past four bolts, then a traverse out R onto super exposed overhanging wall. Devious bouldery crux then pumpy jugging up right to top out the wall.

FFA: Steve Ioannou, 2012

The Supernova extension! After the crux, step L and keep on pumping which makes it longer and more full-on. Brutal!

FA: Steve Ioannou, 2012

New route starting up Mira Nova but continuing up at 3rd bolt to U bolt anchor at lip. Often seeps, but still climbable if the seepage is minor.

FA: Chris Beric, Chris Glastonbury & Leia Clark, 2013

First 6 bolts of NE then move R into the end of Thundermentals

FFA: Chris Beric/Chris Glastonbury, 2013

Past Miranova's first bolt into bowl. Up steep sporty pockets (Thailand anyone?) to some varied, continually engaging climbing to lower-off.

FFA: Lee Cujes, 2012

The first unbroken route through all of Supernova Wall. King ling encompassing 50m of Fredericks finest rock. Up Primosanity, then power through a tough boulder problem into Hypernova. Only question is, are you insane enough to take on this monster?

FFA: Steve Ioannou, 2013

Obvious leaning crack line

FFA: Chris Glastonbury, 2012

Words can't do this route justice. Undeniably a world-class, "you should travel here to do this" route. Starts with stickclipping the bolt a couple of metres right of Chris' mega crack project. Technical slab/groove start to the Facebook-famous dyno. Motor up the crack and confront the "press". Seam section to monster pockets. An unforgettable finale to cap things off.
