Vomit Wall



Access issues inherited from Glen Helen

The area is inside a national park, not owned by the hotel. The rangers would appreciate it if you call them on (08) 8956 7799 before you wish to climb, or at least, drop in and see them at the Ormiston Ranger Station. The area is certainly culturally significant, so no bolting is allowed. Obviously as the area is just behind a hotel (and doesn't get climbers very often at all), it might also be worth having a chat to the owners before you start scaling cliffs and subjecting yourself to the possible embarrassment of having cops called !

Ethic inherited from Glen Helen

No bolting allowed, at all, ever. This is a place of historical significance.

Climbs the blank looking face about 6m left of DV that yeilds a fun line on thin holds and gear. Starts directly below huge hanging flake that leans out from the top of the wall. Straight up face on thin positive holds and cracks, trending slightly right on easier ground to finish up the face just R of flake.

A real doozy of a crux highlights this incredible splitter crack up the middle of the wall. Start in large scoop and crank through low crux before the crack relents to easier climbing. Add a grade or three if you don't know how to jam

A completely improbable and desperately thin line up the edge of the black streak 2m left of H, envisioned by Ryan after the release of the Dawn Wall film and put away by Leigh. Up unrelenting, microscopic edges to a diabolical crux at half height, finishing at ring bolt anchor of H.

(Note: Unless you have a death wish and solo it, this climb can only be toproped as there is no gear and bolting is prohibite)

The best line on the cliff. Start in left facing corner 6 metres right of DoV. Laybacks and jams with good gear lead to interesting mantle finish (beware loose block). After this continue for another few metres before a small traverse left to ring bolts. Can be done with a single rack but an extra #3 camalot wouldn't go astray.
