Description

Just because Right Wing Christianity is bigger than Left Wing Christianity doesn't mean it's better...or is it?! Make the pilgrimage, chalk up, say your prayers and decide for yourself. This sector has many problems to offer the visiting pilgrim by way of slab, sloping top outs, pumpy traverses, overhanging sit starts but sadly not many holy heel hooks to be found in this sector.

Access issues inherited from The Promised Land

Please respect the Houses as you walk into the crag. We have established a good relationship with the locals, including the teachers at the nearby school. Please continue to be a good example of the climbing community

Approach

Follow the track away from King Davids Overhang. When you get to Decision Gully take the right hand access to find the largest sector of the crag.

Right Wing Christianity can also be accessed from Kobens Wall.

Ethic inherited from The Promised Land

Development is still open in this area, but please make sure your new line is reasonably different to those existing. If you have any questions or concerns don't hesitate to contact the main developers - Brendon Flanagan or Ranger Dave.

Please respect the crag and clean up an trash you see. Sadly teenage punks from the local school mess this place up.

History

History timeline chart

Right Wing Christianity saw significant development by Brendon 'The Heel' Flanagan during the early days of the crags development. It wasn't until Geoff Marshall came along to work hand in hand with the boys that the harder problems started to come out of the woodwork.

Discovered by Ranger Dave Archer in July 2013 during the Great Bouldering Boom!

Powerful, challenging start!

Awkward sit start under horizontal sloping crack line with your feet up hill. Pull on and move up through crimps to the sloping scoop. Straight up the middle of the face to top out.

Set: Geoff Marshall, Nov 2013

FA: Ranger Dave Archer, 5 Feb 2014

A Challenging arete with a contrived slap in the middle. You have to feel faith in your palm to send this one

Start hugging the arete using the holds 30cm either side of it. Set up onto the rock below and move up, crimping and slapping till you get above the slap to a decent hold on the right face of the arete Top out to the right keeping close to the arete

Set: Ranger Dave Archer, Nov 2013

The crack to the right of ISS. Climb the crack the entire way by jamming your way up to the top out. UNSW jamming at its best!

The first FA of the crag. Start with your hands matched on the prominent jug. Head straight up but avoid the left hand crack, this is off limits. UTSOAC first to send!

Crimps, under-clings, and a desperate snatch. Downgraded to seven from eight because general consensus seems to be it's a six. Stephen John B

Set: Ranger Dave Archer, 15 Dec 2013

Who knew being swallowed by a whale could be so much fun!

Sit start 1m right of "Thy Mighty Right Hand" (with the scooped out section of the lip on your left) and pump up the inviting array of crimpers until you reach the good slots

With some interesting holds above you, work your way through this problem until you can get your left hand deep within the rounded scoop.

Like water from a blowhole, shoot straight up for the top out and wipe the stomach acids from your hand

Love it!

Set: Ranger Dave Archer, 13 Nov 2013

FA: Ranger Dave Archer, 17 Dec 2013

Power, reach and commitment!

Sit start just right of the rounded arete on some angled ledges. Head up to the two good pockets mid way up the way. Get your feet high and power up to thy mighty right hand slap into the rounded scoop! Hold fast, trust it and topout!

This problem loves the long but extra points for the short who conquer it.

Like Sunday School is for the children so is this problem for the beginner. Start to the far left from CINTG.

Set: Brendon Flanagan, 6 Aug 2013

FA: Brendon Flanagan, 6 Aug 2013

A stout test of dedication and focus.

Start the same as for SS with a hand on the left arete. Move up and to the left, traversing around the rounded corner.

From here the fun starts. Use the sharp crimpers and make your way to the end of the face.

Top out using the crack while keeping your feet on that face. The rock to your right that holds 'WIW' and 'ISS' is out of bounds for hand or foot!

Pumped by the end?

Guilty of sandbagging? Confess and cleanse yourself with 1000 years of crimping on fragile sandstone before entering climbing heaven.

Start with left foot on the opposite face and right hand on chalked up gaston. Straight up the face and don't forget to break a few holds on the way. The good left hand sidepull near the crack is off limits.

Set: Ranger Dave Archer, 2 Feb 2014

FA: Chris Sharples, Jul 2014

Start on the obvious crimpers. Head up and left using the small scoop to top out when mantling. Any part of the crack beneath the wedged boulder is off limits! Don't forget to bless yourself if there's water in the stoup.

Set: Brendon Flanagan, 14 Aug 2013

FA: Brendon Flanagan, 14 Aug 2013

Sit start on the same holds as Who Buys A Stairway. Go up with your left hand to the round crimpy pinch and rock over right to a horrible crimpy gaston.

Top out through the same line as Reach High For The Stoup.

FA: Daniel Totonjian, 8 Jul

Heaven should get an elevator... but until then enjoy this arete that has all the holds in the right places

Sit start under the rounded arete 1m left of 'RHFTS'.

With some high steppin, head up following the solid holds on both sides of the arete. Using the rounded holds, top out straight up.

The sit start can be made a lot harder than it needs to be

FA: Ranger Dave Archer`, 19 Jan 2014

Start just left of the arete climb "Who Buys A Staircase

A Super Committing problem requiring raw strength and some epic dead pointing Sit start at the lowest point just left of "BIAHH", directly under the pigs snout holds. Move up through the ledges till you are clinging to the crimpers on the face above you, put your feet high and launch yourself at the two small vertical holds shaped like a pigs snout. Oh yeah, own that hold, get your other hand up there and raise yourself up for the lawd! Huh! Can ya feel it? Ohhhh Yea!
