Access issues inherited from New South Wales and ACT

If you have benefited from climbing infrastructure in NSW, please consider making a donation towards maintenance costs. The Sydney Rockclimbing Club Rebolting Fund finances the replacement of old bolts on existing climbs and the maintenance of other hardware such as fixed ropes and anchors. The SRC purchases hardware, such as bolts and glue, and distributes them to volunteer rebolters across the state of New South Wales. For more information, including donation details, visit https://sydneyrockies.org.au/rebolting/

Approach

Follow the beginner wall all the way to the end. Follow a small path down and towards the left. The cave is on your left.

History

View historical timeline

Area has been developed and discovered by Tim O'Neill and Adam Griffiths in 2002. Unfortunately no comprehensive guide has been available until now and route descriptions have been lost to history. Out of respect to Tim and Adam please refrain from putting up first ascents of problems of V7 and under.

Grade Route

Dyno on the wave shaped wall immediately before reaching 'Engage & Energize'. Starts matched on the low jugs.

Sit start at the corner. Work your way up to the roof. From there traverse all the way around the roof until you finish directly in line with the start.

FA: Tim O'Neill & Adam Griffiths, 2002

Mega classic roof traverse and thought provoking topout. This is the flag-problem of RnR!

FA: Tim O'Neill & Adam Griffiths, 2002

A more direct line on the right. Slightly harder than aurora borealis

FA: Tim O'Neill & Adam Griffiths, 2002

Start as for 'Engage & Energize'. Follow the cave all the way to the right, staying below 'Aurora Borealis'. Finish matched on the last hold before the lip.

FA: Meedu, 29 May 2017
