Description

The crags under the bridge and further downstream

Access issues inherited from North Esk

All of the crags in the North Esk are on PRIVATE LAND. Please be respectful of this fact. Access to these areas could be jeopardised by climbers doing the wrong thing. Sticking to the following guidelines will help:

  1. Do not park in front of gates or access tracks. Park on the far (south) side of the gate so the owner can get ute/trailer in if she needs to. Consider parking at the bridge and walking up the road.

  2. Leave all gates as you find them. Climb first gate on the hinge end to protect the gate and use that gate for access to both Riverbend and The Crystal Palace cliffs. When you get to the second gate (for Riverbend access) open and then close it rather than climbing over it.

  3. Keep off any cultivated land by walking on edges of the fields. Stay away from all livestock. The cliffs will be closed annually between June - August for lambing season. Please climb elsewhere during this period.

  4. NO DOGS!

  5. No fires

  6. Carry out all rubbish (including finger tape)

  7. If you must answer a call of nature at the crag, follow leave no trace principles by going at least 50 m away from the rock or the river, dig a hole at least 15 cm deep, and carry out any toilet paper in ziplock bag.

  8. Leave the bluetooth speakers at home, and generally remember to behave as if you were at somebody else's house (because you are).

  9. Clean your shoes before you arrive if you have been to other farms.

Grade Route

Climb the central crack of the highly featured face. Mostly face climbing with good gear. Tree rappel from the top.

the next line downstream. the first ascensionists abseiled from the top and set up a hanging belay from the first jug. They proceeded to stand on the lap of the belayer to bypass the crux and lead to the top

FA: Gerry Narkowicz & Norm Selby, 2000

Approx 150m downstream from the Corra Lynn bridge, before the second set of rapids is a large face on the southern side of the river. Kondor 2000 begins at a ledge at water level, traverses right and then follows the path of least resistance to the top. The climbing becomes easier as the intimidation factor increases. It is advised that any repeat ascentionists check the water below incase any submerged objects have floated downstream. The route is named after the K-Mart raft used to get the first ascentionist across the river.
