History

View historical timeline

Historic details are sparse. On an archived site "South Australian Climbing Home Page" made by Paul Grey which was maintained till around the late 90's/early 00's:

"In Ansteys Hill Quarry in Belair[sic] there are two big off-vertical slabs made of "wave rock", the first being closest to the road, and of comparably better rock, but still a little loose. This line goes up the highest point. There are other possibilities on the wall, but you have to like loose slab climbing."

Musk and Strawberries was top-roped by Heath Timberlake presumably sometime in the mid/late 90's. This line was subsequently bolted along with 2 others on the same wall, but no details are known.
