Description

The highest of the bolted walls at Castle Rock, spectacular long lines, over 100 metres over the bush.

Approach

There is a track off the old formed road, but the easiest to find approach is from the summit, you follow the rough track over rocks South from the Summit.

Descent notes

The first belay point you reach from the summit (between two diving board sticking out rocks) is East Wind. Which is a short 8m belay followed by a long 50m one. Anzac Parade (30m, 60m, 30m) and Quiet Earth (60m, 60m) are the two recommended descent options - both go to the ground. The first pitch of East Wind has not been climbed.

Starts at a “half height” ledge system accessed via climbing the 1st 2 pitchs of 2-Stroke Tantrum, or by abseiling into them.

Abseil off the first belay point south of the summit (between two diving board shaped rocks), you head to the right (round the obvious ledge below). The start of the 1st completed pitch starts 60 metres down.

  1. (19) Heads mostly straight up for around 30 metres before tending right to the belay point on the ledge 8 metres below the top [8 bolts].

  2. (20) The top pitch is challenging with small holds and has an alternate finish using the bolt over the left (looking up) diving board - rated 22 if you feel like more of a challenge [4 bolts / 5 bolts].
