on north west side of bridge, follow arch over path, then up past a bee hive, and onto heidelberg rd. 4 carrots, no anchor - no way this is 14 I still reckon it's hard for 20.

on north west side of bridge, straight up on right hand side of bee hive and tree

Start on top of the terrance. Line follows 4 U-bolts to the double U-bolt anchor just below the bridge.

Starts on the terrace. Follows 3 U-bolts just left of the arete. Anchors are on the top of the arete.

Start the climb clipped to the 3rd bolt of (Unknown). Lower back down to the the ledge to begin. Step right ignoring any holds used in (Unknow) and follow the obvious drill holes along the arch, pulling up along tight crimps and strange side pulls, eventually moving directly up to the first bolt of (Mystic Kazoo). Finish as for (Mystic Kazoo).

Climb the first 3 bolts of Unknown then pull in to the right and clip the new bolt.

Follow nice crimpy line to next bolt, then technical moves until pulling up into the anchors.

Best to have someone follow up to clean the route, unless you're in the mood for a big swing.

Accessed from the North East side of the bridge.

Set up an anchor point from the railings and rap down to clear landing at the bottom of the bridge.

Bring small cams and wires, and one green camalot to make the final move to the ledge nice and protected.

As far as I can tell, this is the first and only trad climb within the inner Melbourne area!

Using all the holds, traverse the bluestone wall underneath the bridge. Difficulty is about the same regardless of which direction you traverse.

FA: Unknown

Traverse the bluestone wall using ONLY the top row of stones. Easier if you use both holds and cracks (~25), and harder if you use only the slopers on top (~27). Difficulty is about the same regardless of which direction you traverse.

FA: Unknown

Traverse the bluestone wall WITHOUT using the top row of stones. Difficulty is about the same regardless of which direction you traverse.
