Premium quality lines


Guaranteed good time


Rappel from the top or approach from the bottom of the cliffs. Access to Telopea is via short traversing pitch from an elevated ledge of ferns. After rounding the first arétte you will find two bolts, the belay for Onward and Upward. To access the rest of the routes, follow the fixed ropes around a second arette to a larger ledge.

Grade Route

Huge ramp, potentially the best pure slab climb in the South Pacific, not that there's much competition... Only route that tops out and bolted as such that crux's can be aided, roughly 18 M1. Delicate moves on low angle mingers and pockets. Move belay 3m left to the rap chains when topping out.

After leaving the anchors you are deposited at after rappelling, step right around vegetated corner. Slightly bouldery move easily aided to gain chossy looking break continuing through it for about a metre then step around the arete and an anchor will be visible. Continue upwards for access to OOE, TP and BTTW. Use fixed line to move safely around the next arete to rest of the routes.

A truely exceptional climb. The real climbing stars from the fifth bolt. Relentless for 8m

An excellent intricate and sustained line! Starting direct from the main ledge goes at 27, due to a one move boulder problem, then easy to the higher small ledge. This can be bypassed by starting up Release the Beast, traversing right to the double bolt belay and re-tying to reduce drag. Worth giving the boulder problem a crack though and it can easily be aided.
