description

Fantastic slab climbing up immaculate rock.

With modern gear it is not nearly the scare fest it used to be.

Start: The gorgeous water streak up the middle of the face that commences off of the slight ledge just above the path.

  1. 30m (15) Climb to the ledge. Marginal gear.

  2. 45m (16) The best pitch. Amazing climbing on incredible rock. Blast straight up the wall heading for the tree ledge.

  3. 40m (14) A wandering pitch, starting from the left hand end of the ledge, and heading up and left.

ethic

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).
