Description

Three boulder clusters that have generally been underdeveloped. Some interesting looking features and a few established climbs.

Access issues inherited from The Freefall Area

Located in a national park - respect the bushland and the rock!

Ethic inherited from The Freefall Area

Climbing is a privilege not a right – please respect the bushland and the rock. Where possible preserve the natural flora and keep to tracks to minimize impact. Clean tick marks and caked chalk with a good scrubbing. Although some older problems are chipped and glued this is no longer tolerated. No chipping or gluing.

Grade Route

Start on the right. Traverse left on good rail. Tricky top.

FA: Seth Fortune

Sit start as Seths Lowball, but instead of traversing left do a big move straight up.

Looks appealing. Bit of a dodgy landing

Double arete project. Rad feature.

Sit start on edges on left. Bust out to arete and up. Rad.

FA: Andy Lampard

Once saw someone cranking down moves on this...definitely possible. Still a project.

Thin, highball. Looks awesome.

Up crack on far right.

Stand start with foot on good low flake.

Sit start on rail. Powerful and balancy up to squeeze the aretes. Start hold has now come off - in need of a new FA! https://youtu.be/FVV-_gF11q4

FA: Andy Lampard

Sit start. Up the paired cracks

Stand start. fragile start holds. Up with the cracks.

Project. Trending right and avoiding the parallel cracks.

Up arete. Cool feature. That landing though

Up the crack. High. Can be done as arete layback or jamming crack.

Highball

Stand start on right arete, traverse left. Cool shoulder move at the end under the roof and jugs to finish, avoiding the left boulder.

FA: Steve Holland

Offwidth climbing up the crack

FA: Connor Teophil, Apr 2021

FA: Mitch

Up arete

Sit start problem #71, Link up to Problem 70.

FA: Mitch Woodward

Warm up. Up good rails to tricky top.

Stand Start

Sit start. Up slab with left arete. Awkward and chossy.

Stand start on the slab and be tall the the top. Avoid the arete

FA: Alex Leslie, Apr 2021

Same start as Shaq Shake, but traverse right along the bottom seam until you can reach the lip on the right and make moves for a top out.

FA: Connor Teophil, Apr 2021
