The Terrace




Walk up through the cave and rap/descend from anchors down to the ledge (easy grade 8 climb out)

Access issues inherited from Bulahdelah

Major access issues in all areas at present. Walking through the state forest is fine but DO NOT CLIMB south of the lookout. Permission has been granted by the new landholders to climb on the northern part of the cliffs. This includes the Beehive, Fiegs overhang and the Cave. However getting there is tricky. A landowner to the north is alleging climbers have damaged his property. Do not cross at the water reservoir or trespass on the northwest side of the ridge. Parking down near the golf course, then skirting the southern boundary of the golf course will keep you on the land we have permission to access. Hopefully a map of this will appear soon.

Ethic inherited from Bulahdelah

If you intend to bolt then it is best to speak to the locals as they will inform you of the do's and don'ts of bolting in the area.

Grade Route

Starting from the double bolts at the right hand end of cave, go straight up staying left of face till the wall gets to steep then traverse onto the face out right and up to lower offs.

Line of hex bolts. First one up on this little wall. Stops at ledge.

FA: Wyane's, 1998

Do any of the Terrace routes to get to the Double U bolt belay at the top of Carrots. From Double U Bolts, a deceptive line follows a rising traverse left from anchor to clip fixed hanger. Waiting for you is bouldery roof moves up to another fixed hanger. Clip a ringbolt, put on a stiff upper lip and then run it out to anchors, on albeit easier ground. Great climbing, but make sure your warmed up before taking this one on!

FA: Dan wilde, 2006

clip the anchors of route on carrots and keep going up the steep wall on RBs

The thin line in the middle of a beautiful white wall on hangers. This crimpy test piece climb, has seen many tears shed from wanna be leaders thinking they will waltz up it. Stick clip 1st hanger, a technical thin start on bad feet guard the 2nd anchor, nice moves up and across right to 3rd. Take care when clipping 3rd hanger. Then head straight up wall to 4th and ledge. Shares double U bolt loweroff of Carrots

FA: JJ, 2006

The right hand route on terrace, adjacent to large flake. Stay on line of ringbolts and dont stray over right to easier ground for full value. Has ring bolts above on ledge, requiring abseiling to clean, due to poor rock quality.

FA: JJ, 2006
