Description

Park at the Mt Melville look out carpark and head past the lookout tower to the obvious cluster of boulders. Generally sharp but solid rock with some interesting features - some clean cracks and strange aretes. Unfortunately many of the boulders are desperately blank, but it makes those with holds that bit more special. Great access for a quick session after work to shred some skin and rubber.

The high slab underneath the lookout tower. Superb rock. Has a handy belay rail at the top if you feel like toproping the wall. Three routes as listed in the 1978 CAWA guidebook by R Rathbone and M Smith.

Stand start. Up the vague crack on the left.

Stand start. Up the prominent 'nose' to the right of the left. Tend right into the groove.

Sit start on the right, jam a painful kneebar and head left to topout. Sharp.

Low start matched on the flake. Jam a right heel and make desperate moves to gain the slab. https://youtu.be/40AvCuE1R6c?t=50s

Sit start. Hard moves to gain the lip.

Sit start. Traverse right then topout.

Up the blunt arete. Super sharp.

Has been done. V-dunno because I suck at crack climbing... felt hard for me but probably really easy!

Sit start on obvious flat jug. Up the face with edges.

Sit start with good flake, long move to the sloper to topout. Cool feature! https://vimeo.com/126374382

Sit start. Up and left along the dong into an awkward topout. Avoid the boulder to the right.

Named after graffiti that was on the boulder from back in the day.

Stand start, up the obvious crack.

Sit start. Up and left.

Awesome highball boulder on the summit track. Original lines opened in 1986 by legend Pete Lowe. Then in a multi-session assault by local crusher Kym Hartley in 2020, the classic right scoop ('Isolation', V6) was opened.

Stand start with the crimps on the left, long moves up with decent feet. Up the slab next to the path. High and easy. Not so easy to get off... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hnhmankwUhs

Stand start. Up the slabbiest section of the boulder. Gets thin up high! https://youtu.be/hnhmankwUhs?t=90

FA: Pete Lowe, 1986

Epic highball project! Stand start with edges and up with tricky moves

Stand start.

FA: Pete Lowe, 1986

Contrived but cool exit along the dive board feature leftwards. But scary.

Stand start with left hand shark tooth and right hand low side pull crimp and good feet. up with positive holds. Fun.
