Morialta Thorn Buttress
23 Breathless
22 Gladiator Direct Start

Takes the poor-looking rock immediately left of the marked Olympus start, joining the upper corner via a reachy and powerful sequence. Was the original line until the loss of some holds.

FA: Col Reece

Trad 20m
22 Sardine

Starts just left of the 'Terrathea' corner and climbs up to the big sidepull sloper and two good edges. Clip the next bolt and launch out left (crux) to a big crank level with the small roof (rest). Cut back right - then left - until below the final face (rest). Continue to the chain. This route can also be done by going direct through the roof (at the same grade).

Sport 21m, 6
22 Sardine Direct
22 Terra Incognita

Climb the reachy boulder-problem off the deck just right of the Terrethea crackline via a big move to the dubious flat jug. Continue up to the 'shield' (which is living on borrowed time) - then onwards up the face.

FA: Stuart Williams, 1995

Sport 20m
22 Incognita-Japetus DF Link
23 Japetus

The original route. Now superseded by the direct finish.

Start: Takes the very overhanging arete from its base up to the 'hole', then tacts right around the steep arete and up to the big break via a good undercling. This original line then stepped left and finished up the 'Terra Incognita' face.

FA: Kim Carrigan (all on trad), 1979

23 Japetus Direct Finish

Originally established as a bold traditional outing by Kim Carrigan. Now retro-bolted with general consensus due to it residing in a largely sport-route populated area. Not surprisingly, it has now become one of the most travelled lines for its grade at 'Morialta'. Makes for a far better outing than the original. Once at the big break, climb straight up the continuation of the arete largely on its right border to finish at a chain.

FA: Kim Carrigan (all on trad), 1981

23 Japetus-Stench Connection

A more powerful version of 'Japetus'. Once at the large break, cut right up the rampline of 'Stench' and finish at that routes chain. Sustained.

Mixed trad 21m, 4
22 Barad Dur

Swing up the steep juggy wall immediately left of Eternal Damnation's undercut arete past a big rattly block to a ledge. Step right and go up to the roof. Now make a cramped step back left past a bolt onto an undercut wall to reach the base of the crack. Straight up the crack.

FA: Ascends the hanging flake to the right of the original crack finish

Sport 15m, 3
23 Gorilla My Nightmare

Climb 'Gorilla My Dreams Direct Start' to the top horizontal (finger-jug), but instead of breaking left to finish up the crack, break right along the horizontal for a couple of moves, then launch upwards via underclings and a good crimp to the next horizontal.

Crossroads then diagonally right into KPDM then traverse the lip of the small roof to join Peregrine at its anchor.

22 Trish Delish

A varied route that takes a striking line. Begin at the hand crack just right of the arete. A hard start over a small roof leads to good crack climbing and a rest on the L arete level with the main roofline. Swing around R to regain the crack and follow it up the slab past a bush. Climb the ramp up L then straight up the wall just R of the arete.

23 Taste the Pain

Fresh bolts will hopefully breath life back into this fantastic little gem! Starts a couple of meters left of the main wall and to the right of Felch Me. Head up following the bolts to the overhang. Once over the overhang use the slab and the corner to reach the chains. Old chains are still there for prosperity.

22 X The Power of the Choss Compels You

Climbs the left hand side of the corner. Start up the very loose brittle white rock and work through the detached blocks. Once at the overhang get some jams above your head and work your way into the top of 'Taste The Pain'. Finish at the old rusty chains for the full experience. WARNING The first half is extremely loose. Make sure your belayer is anchored well left of the fall zone!

FA: pamelalansbury, 16 Jul

22 X Disposable Rubbish

Neagle entered this route in his guide as a bit of a joke on the chossy corner to the left of ELV. 24 years later it's officially a route. Start as for 'The Power of the Choss Compels You', climb the LH side of the corner and just before the roof leave it and head towards the thin crack in the roof. Climb up and out of the slight overhang, mantle the slab and climb it to the top. No chains yet but they will be installed in the next few weeks.

The rock is shit. The gear is shit. Only climb it if you really feel the need to and even then don't do it. Climb another route instead. A serious undertaking with serious consequences if you fall!

FA: pamelalansbury, 23 Jul

Belair Car Crash Quarry Sector 4 - Graffiti Wall
22 The Electric Lavender Vacuum Cleaner LHV

23 Beg For Mercy

Originally established at 24 via the RO start (the start of Merciless), but a better route starting up PO making it a grade easier. Climb the first two BR's of Percetive Orators then head right across the good jug on AGW and clip the bolt out right on Elephantiasis. Span right to a positive sidepull then keep traversing right into Gonads RHV. Climb the last two BR's of this route and finish at the chain of Mercy Street.

22 Perceptive Orators

Was 22 then hold breakage upped grade to 23. In 2011 the flake came off resulting in a large sidepull. Two other holds have been created over the years (due to hold breakage) and it's likely that this route is now 19 or 20 given its current (2020) state.
