Afternoon sun

Steep and juggy


A steep orange scoopy wall with some of the best pumpy steep climbing in the Shire. The cliff faces west, so it gets shade until midday then roasts in the sun. The crag seeps badly both during and after rain.


Park at the end of Bluebell Rd, Heathcote. Hop the gate onto the fire trail and follow it around to the left for a couple of hundred metres. The crag is located down to the right. Locate the scramble down (about 50m beyond the crag) and walk back to the crag.

The following 5 routes are on the little orange wall before the main wall. Despite the low grades they aren't great beginner routes as a missed clip or fall at the wrong spot will result in decking.
