Description

From the "dirty abandoned project" at the end of Offspring Wall walk 70m further L until you come to a collapsed roof system - This is where "Underworld" commences. If you go down the little gully to the lower tier you will find an overhanging section with three bolted mini routes on superb polished sandstone. If you continue walking thru the upper section it will bring you to a 5m long roof with an epic long boulder problem. Toward the edge of the cliff you will find anchors on a large slab that is atop the lower level. This area contains three routes.

Access issues inherited from New South Wales and ACT

If you have benefited from climbing infrastructure in NSW, please consider making a donation towards maintenance costs. The Sydney Rockclimbing Club Rebolting Fund finances the replacement of old bolts on existing climbs and the maintenance of other hardware such as fixed ropes and anchors. The SRC purchases hardware, such as bolts and glue, and distributes them to volunteer rebolters across the state of New South Wales. For more information, including donation details, visit https://sydneyrockies.org.au/rebolting/

Approach

Walk in from Mulbring Rd and head for Kit Kat Wall and continue L along the base of the cliff.

Grade Route

Starting 1-2m to the right of "Sinusoidal" on two edges in the roof. Move right to a pocket, and make a big move to the lip. Make your way up using crimps and slopers on the face ultimately joining "Sinusoidal" to finish

Just as you walk into the cave, start on two obvious juggy pockets just under the roof. Make a tough move out to a small crimp rail then a tricky jump to a flat ledge. Continue straight up the slab to top out.

FA: Michael Tonon

Sit start at the back of the cave, and follow the line of holds arcing out to the right. Finish matched on a ledge around the lip after some cruxy moves.

Back to the upper level. This is the boulder problem under the roof that sits above Nice climb for the Kids and Little Gem. When you come the collapsed roof system and crawl thru to the other end of the cave you will come to a roof system about 1.5m above ground level. "Room with a view" starts in the back of the cave and goes all the way to the lip and finishes on the headwall.

Climb room with a view all the way to the slopey lip then bust up and left to good ledge before going straight up and up on some crimp rails before easy high terrain topping out. First done with a tied in spotter and it would be recommended.

FA: Michael Tonon, 20 Sep 2018

Start as for room with a view but halfway out exit straight left through some tough moves to reach the jugs. The a large throw to lip before heading straight up the headwall to walk off.

The contender for best in the cave? Climb as for 'Sloths in the attic' to the the big jug rail, from here traverse the lip back-towards 'Room with a better view" through some small edges and a tough cut. Top out as for "Room with a better view'

Start about 3m to the right of "Room with a View" matched on jug at back of cave and climb virtually directly out of the roof, towards the same finish jug as "Room with a view" continue left topping out as for "Room with a better view"

Links Academic Revision into Dr Bob top out.

FA: Sam Healy

Climb "Academic Revision" through to the finish of "Room with a view" traverse right through some crimps to the obvious flat ledge of "Sinusoidal" and head directly up the slab, with some spooky feet to top out.

Starting on the finish jug of "Room With a View" and head directly up through a long move to the crimp rail, continuing straight up to top out.

FA: Sam Healy

Start on smooth slot at the beginning of the left hand arete. Climb the arete all the way out to finish topping out the same as Sloths in the attic.

FA: Michael Tonon, 26 Sep 2015

This route is best approached by taking the vague gully (before crawling thru the collapsed roofs) down to the lower level where a nice short overhanging wall sports three routes. The first route is easiest is on the R hand side of the overhang. Two rings and anchors.

FA: paul, 2015

Set: paul, Jul 2015

The route 1m L of 'A Nice Climb for the Kids' Beaut sandstone up the ever steepening little wall to the anchors 3m L of previous route. Short and sweet. Easier than it looks.

Set: paul, Jul 2015

The furthest route L of the three in this mini area. Harder than its companions to the R. Open project
