The Project Wall

  • Grade context: AU

Description

The Project Wall is an excellent wall; decent hight, solid rock, bulging... but sadly, pretty featureless. One for the hard nuts! Around it are one or two other fun (sometimes scary) offerings.

Access issues inherited from Sutherland

For over 50 years climbers in the Sutherland Shire have enjoyed free access to many fantastic crags and caves. But as of 2014 there have been access problems emerging at several climbing and bouldering areas due to aboriginal art sites and shell middens in caves. Sutherland Shire Council and the Dept of Enviroment and Heritage have announced closures and sign-posted some of these aboriginal sites, with further closures and signs to be added during summer/autumn 2016/2017. Areas of particular problem are ground level overhangs with flat bases, the type of terrain popular at hard bouldering areas. Whilst the details are sorted out keep a low profile, clean up ALL rubbish (inc removing mattresses in bouldering caves) and avoid climbing at closed areas. In particular treat non-climbers you see at crags with the utmost respect as they could be rangers, archeologists, traditional owners or anyone else with a dim view of climbers and the ability to shut us out. Climbing in Royal National Park has been officially banned for many years - probably due mostly to the Wattamolla 'don't jump off rocks' cliff-diving-into-water ban.

Approach

As with the general approch, keep following the cliff line easterward till you see the large cliff line. Can't miss it.

Grade Route

King Alfred, King of Wessex! Butt start just right of ramp and tree. Up and slightly right through nice territory. Then necky to the top. Tough for the grade?

FA: dwebster, 2012

Butt start between KoW and AP. Up nice moves to break, then more boldly to top. Easiest to stay just left of tree. The big ramp is on for feet only.

FA: dwebster, 2012

Butt start just left of tree and KoW. Feet can be jambed low, but not on separate rock. Great hard pulling through pocket, to ledge, then carefully up left.

FA: dwebster, 2012

5m left of AP. Standing, just right of the chimney. Take the easiest route up via the pocket.

FA: dwebster, 2012

First problem done here. Just left of the chimney and the bulging arete type feature. Use the feature on right for feet only (otherwise v2).

FA: dwebster, 2012

Hands on ledge and pocket about 3m left of HtSS. Move straight up via little ripples, finishing rightwards. Tough for the grade?

FA: dwebster, 2012
