Car Wash Crag


Extensive single pitch cliff line on east side of Bluff Mountain, between the walking track to the summit and Bluff Pyramid. Distinguished by slabby ramps on the far left, massive scoopy overhangs in the middle, and broken shattered roofs on the right. So named because of the sensation of walking between the numerous grass trees (Xanthorrhoea australis) at the base in the rain.


Cliff is visible left of walking track on the way up Bluff Mountain from Nuada Saddle. Marked on the CMA "Warrumbungle National Park Tourist Map" GR 882 317.

Suds'n'all 17 35m
Start beneath the yellow, fragile roofs at the right end of the crag. Scramble up ledges, then sticking to the good dark rock, move up and L to beneath crack in roof guarding a short chimney. Through roof with feeling, passing the "dagger of doom" (a sharp wedged chockstone).
