Bee Vee Face

  • Grade context: AU
  • Ascents: 1




Climbing at Bee Vee will make climbing anywhere else seem great.


An old slate quarry of mostly loose, chalky and thinly-bedded rock. The wall is close to vertical. There are no fixed anchors at the top and the nearest useful tree, bush or boulder is at least 100m from the edge. Star droppers may be useful but the ground is rocky.

Access issues

It would be council land. There is an ancient "Keep Out" sign near the road.


Driving north through Burra, look for the obvious cutting through the hill on your right before the golf course turn off. 3 minute walk to climbs.

Where to stay



The fixed protection is either rusty old carrots or huge metal spikes (presumably used for aid).


History timeline chart

The climbs were 'established' by 'Dave Jennings' which may be a nom de plume to save someone's climbing career.
