Access issues inherited from Arapiles

Bird Nesting September-December Raptors usually nest on the following climbs in Spring : Cassandra, Eurydice, Harlequin Cracks, Revelations. Nesting usually finishes mid-December. There may or may not be signs in place at these times. Please keep 50m clear of these climbs if there appears to be nesting activity.

State Park

Ethic inherited from Arapiles

Mount Arapiles is first and foremost a trad climbing area. The few sport climbs tend to be in the higher grades where no natural pro is available.

Bolting, particularly retro-bolting, is discouraged and should only be undertaken after extensive consultation with the local climbers, first ascensionists, etc. Inappropriately placed bolts have been chopped.

Do not chip the rock.

Look after the park.

  • Stick to the paths.

  • Don't disturb the wildlife.

  • Routes near peregrine falcon nesting sites are closed in the spring.

  • Minimise the impact of your camping (fuel stoves not fires, take your rubbish with you, etc).

The chimney between the Finger Prince and Iron Void pinnacles past funny blocks and ancient machine nut.

Up fragile looking flakes to join Iron Void. Gear may be suspect.

Start: Start 8m R of 'Tuby Tuba'.

FA: Steve Monks, 1992

Start off the boulder and L and up the great face which swallows heaps of small wires - if you have the stamina to find the placements! You can also approach the same line by doing the reachy start of IVV.

FA: Tony Dignan & Geoff Little, 1979

A completely separate route despite the name!

Start right of Iron Void and up.

FA: Steve Monks

Short, soft and bolted - needless to say this one is popular.

Traverse out above The Flashing Blade, using the handholds of that route as footholds!

Up the face with 1 BR.

Start: Start as for FB.

FA: Kurt Smith & early 90s?, 2000

The fine line L of the slim tree.
