Routes on The Fintstone Wall

We like The Fintstone Wall

// THE CLIMBING // So far, single pitch sport climbing on hard, pockety rock, somewhat reminiscent of Mt Tibrogargan. The best bits are extremely compact and covered with pockets. The worst bits are shattered and brittle. The odd loose hold remains, but will clean up. Please pull off anything that is loose and bring a brush for further cleaning. // THE POTENTIAL // While there isn’t much scope for very hard sport climbing, potential exists for good quality, moderate (15-21) multipitches, both entirely bolted, mixed, and perhaps even traditionally protected. The best walls for this lie in the 300m section of wall right of sector Gold Coast. // WHAT TO BRING // • 12 quickdraws plus the usual slings and screwgates. • Wear a helmet climbing and belaying. There is still plenty of loose rock around. • One 60m rope will suffice. • Bring mozzie repellent and sunscreen. // THE SUN // As the cliff faces NE, this face goes into shade around lunchtime. An easterly breeze is nice.
The more I go back to this crag the more psyched I am getting. So many good looking lines still to be had. Could be spending most of the summer here doing new routes.
Been out here twice now, nice drive in and a good hike to get warmed up. First thoughts was WOW. the sun bowl looks awesome from the track, and GC wall has alot of great routes too. I was v. impressed with the effort the guys have put into this crag, accessibility and well bolted routes not going unnoticed. I'll definitely be back!
