Access issues inherited from Mt Stuart

Visiting climbers are advised that a significant proportion of the cliffs lie in Department of Defence (Army) land. Trespassing on defence land is an offense. The Townsville City Council (TCC) controlled cliffs require a permit for climbing and/or abseiling. Do not park too close to the gate else your car may be moved. During the year, the car club holds races on the mountain road; during this time road access is closed. Mark Gommers is negotiating with the TCC to remove certain onerous restrictions such as a permit and indemnity insurance.

Approach

From the wood handrail, look out north an you will see JCU down below and the steep Under the Radar wall will be visible on your right hand side. Step down to the right side of the rail and walk directly north/down 10m and then directly to the east/right for 5m to access a fixed line and ladder rungs. Follow rungs down into the gully.You are now literally under the radar! The approach requires confidence at heights.

Ethic inherited from Mt Stuart

Installation of permanent anchors (eg bolts) is not permitted on City Council land or Department of Defence (Army) land. Take all rubbish with you. - Be aware of loose rocks and other climbers who could be below you.

FFA: Steven Ioannou, Katarina Damjanovic & Chris Beric, 28 Jun 2019

Cruxy start on small crimps, floods in the wet!

FA: Steven Ioannou, Katarina Damjanovic & Chris Beric, 28 Jun 2019

Who doesn't like a spicy finish? At the second last bolt traverse left and into the corner. Once you are in the corner then come back right onto the exposed juggy face to reach the anchor.

FFA: Katarina Damjanovic, Steven Ioannou & Chris Beric, 8 Jun 2019

After a powerful mid section, take your time to read the rock at the top.

FFA: Steven Ioannou, Chris Beric & Katarina Damjanovic, 8 Jul 2019

Quest up the featured trench and join right into the finish of Rust in Peace.

FFA: Chris Beric, Steven Ioannou & Katarina Damjanovic, 8 Jul 2019

Punchy boulder crux.

FFA: Steven Ioannou, Chris Beric & Katarina Damjanovic, 8 Jul 2019

FFA: Chris Beric & Jarrah, 8 Jul 2019

Flows nicely on crimpy solid rock.

FFA: Katarina Damjanovic, Steven Ioannou & Chris Beric, 8 Jul 2019

Crux-less, sustained climbing. Start as for SQ for first 4 bolts then trend left to link in to DBP.

Sustained and continuous line on small holds leading to a reachy and juggy finish.

FFA: Steven Ioannou, Chris Beric & Katarina Damjanovic, 8 Jul 2019

The MEGA link up! Starts up first two bolts of DBP, then diagonally R across the entire wall to finish at UTR.

FFA: Steven Ioannou, Chris Beric & Katarina Damjanovic, 12 Sep 2020

Steep, long and powerful. Grade 27 if you avoid using the jug shield to the right at the 6th bolt of Death by Parsnip.

FFA: Steven Ioannou & Chris Beric, 17 Mar 2020

The fig tree at the start is in. Trend slightly left at the roof below the anchor for finish crux to anchor jugs.

FFA: Chris Beric, Jarrah & Steven Ioannou, 30 May 2020

Shares same finish as Pressure Drop.

FFA: Chris Beric, Kaledas Flintoff & Jarrah, 30 May 2020

Well protected climb with steep hand jamming finish up splitter crack! U bolt anchor.

FFA: Chris Beric & Steven Ioannou, 22 Jun 2019

Climbs the prominent arete which is surprisingly featured! A brilliant climb with a challenging start. Recommend to clip the 2nd bolt early before entering the start crux moves to the obvious ledge above. The optional two bolt extension ('Turn to Gold') is thin, and goes at grade 24.

FFA: Chris Beric, Steven Ioannou & Kaledas Flintoff, 26 Apr 2020

It had to be climbed! One for those who like to grovel up old school chimneys, you know who you are.. Take great care with the huge precariously balanced orange shield. Cams up to #5. Access via protected scramble L of Barbarian.
