Terrors Creek

  • Grade context: AU
  • Ascents: 97




Terror's Creek has a large and fairly confused history. It seems as though many of QLD's strong climbers of the past have been through this area over the years. A combination of broken holds and blurry memories however have rendered a lot of the past descriptions pretty inaccurate. This is an attempt to get this crag up to date for future crushers.


There is parking for one to four (maybe 5small) cars behind the guard rail. Bear in mind however first in will be stuck until second in moves their vehicle and so on down the line of parked cars).

Parking is 5.5km from the Mt Mee Rd turn off from Dayboro. Turn in behind the "Terrors Creek - George Juffs Bridge" sign. Be careful pulling back onto Mt Mee Road as both corners are quite blind and vehicles are traveling at speed up and down this road.

From the parking, follow the vague track down to the boulders in the creek. Walk along the boulders for a couple of minutes until you reach a steepish section. Go down this, there will be a large boulder on your right. This is the back of the Main Boulder. Walk around the end of this boulder and you will see the Main Area.

If you scramble down the creek from the main boulder you will find the "easy" slabs of the lower tier.

Get ready to pull hard on small crimps, and a couple conveniently placed mono's.

Very overhanging wall. Start on side pull and rail. Throw for left hold, match, throw for another left hold, left heel hook after big move to top. Press like don't want to fall off. Nick W

This was previously ‘Kiss My Witness’ V6. Holds broke and alas was a project for some time before a “post break repeat” grade confirmation.

Start with both hands on low incut rail. Follow obvious break straight up and finish as for ‘Silent Witness'

Possibly lives up to the name. It would appear that holds have broken since Brad S and Nick W first documented this boulder. A powerful, aggressive crimp boulder that needs a repeat to reconfirm the grade. Would appear at least V11.

Sit Start on good two finger side pull and crimp. Hard first moves left into small crimps, then finish as for ‘Kiss My Witness’.

Absolute cracker of a one move wonder. Start on incut edge in middle of wall. Do a big move to good edge, match, then finish up an easy mantle (as for 'Kiss the Witness'). Definitely harder for those challenged in the ways of the span.

FA: Sam Bowman, 22 May 2020

Stand start on left hand edge and right hand crimp. Big first move into right gaston, then follow good edges to first obvious top out. Mantle is tricky so be careful. Unsure on First Ascensionist, please get in touch with more info!

FA: Unknown

Start as for the v7 finishing up the mantle of the v4 trending below the lip on good holds moving back down before heading up to the mantle.

FA: I'm sure some one has already done this

Guess this needs a new name. Low start on the first of the monos and the obvious incut edge, with a pretty crucial toehook. Climb straight through the roof for a few moves before finishing up The V7. One of QLD's new hardest boulders.

FA: Sam Bowman, 22 May 2020

Mega Rig climbing the steepest most sustained part of the overhanging wall, likely a project for future generations.

Start left hand on the arete, right hand on lower crimp. Overhanging arete above the small pool near the entrance as you approach super overhanging wall.

FA: Finn, 19 Mar

Start on the incut pinch and incut right-hand hold.

Underneath rock opposite the main wall. Start matching second lowest rail (Could go from lower rail but will probably break off) with double toe hook over lip. Pull onto jugs/lip and traverse left to mantle.

FA: Lee Prescott, 18 Dec 2021

Start lower on the small footholds used in the V3, big move out to the shelf.

FA: Unknown

Smaller overhang below the witness boulder. Start low on crimps, blast up and left to a vicious mantle.

Start matched on the small blocky hold, figure out how to do the large move to the middle crimp and mantle. Avoid wall on the left.

FA: Finn McCallum, 17 Oct 2021

Sit start matched on the low blob, follow arete
