my first chimney!


The big chimney in the middle of the wall. Described as a "Traditional, bolt-protected chimney experience". Crux is the final move getting into the chimney proper.


Bolts to chains.

If you are a tradie masquerading as a sporto for a "rest day" this is a classic! With some big pro and a little run out you can lead it!

As of today, this route is now equipped with quicklinks courtesy of the ASCA. PLEASE do not remove these as running the rope directly through the bolts will wear them down!
