Clean Cut Walls




Nice sport climbing venue near Eureka. There is a good range of grades but the cliff is best 23 and above. If you have not been to Eureka, please do yourself a favour and go as it's an amazing cliff.


Two prominent orange tiers lower and left of Eureka Walls. Gets shade at 3pm.

Left side of grey face. Bouldery at start. Drop a grade or two if you bridge up the tree.

FA: Kent Paterson, 2015

Starts on right side of grey face. The tree is now gone. Batman off first bolt or traverse in from left (grade 15?)

FA: Emi K

Climbs much better than it looks, a great overlooked route for those who's brain starts to fade after clipping too many bolts. Starts a few m right of Plat Du Jour at bouldery overhang. Straight up this and wall (small wires) to arete and hollow flake. Make a move R, and up short corner to amazing diagonal line (wires / small-med cams). Along this to finish at the anchor of Phil's project.

FA: Goshen Watts & Jimmy, 16 May 2015

Start at first bolt of closed project, then follow undercling traverse to arête then up and left in crack to lower off of Plat Du Jour
