Summary

Trad and bouldering short routes on granite surrounding a waterhole. A beginner to intermediate crag and popular swimming location.

Description

Maidenwell is a great little place to climb and boulder. It is characterised by short routes on granite around a popular swimming hole. If you’re a beginner, Maidenwell will satisfy, and dedicated climbers of higher ability will find a suitable challenge within its confines. Most of the information here has been sourced from the 2004 3rd ed. of Luke Hyam's guidelet.

Approach

The crag is at Coomba waterhole, 2Km from Maidenwell Town. The climbing routes are a 70m walk from carpark.

Where to stay

Maidenwell township rest area. Free camping, public toilet and BBQ.

Ethic

The style at Maidenwell to date has been traditional climbing. Bolt placements are belay anchors only, and these are stainless expansion bolts with fixed hangers. There is some potential for bolting the listed routes and new routes. I hope that sanity and logic prevail in endeavours of this kind. Bear in mind that overt bolting may impact on access here. Time will tell. Always give due regard to rock fall and work to reduce its incidence, as there may still be some loose rock on the listed climbs. The waterhole and picnic area have regular visitors on weekends, so be conscious of anyone in your climbing vicinity. Once the obvious loose rock is removed, the surface is very reliable.

A few years ago there was basically Frog Buttress and Coolum. Since then there has been more development than Barangaroo and South East Queensland should be on any climbers radar no matter what your style. Except ice climbing, definitely no ice climbing. But over 1250 routes with hard sport, multipitches and quality trad to make a great trip.
