Lomandra Place Cave

Crag faces south west


Small and steep with good access.


Drive to #6 Lomandra Place, Alfords Point. Park on grassy area next to bush. Walk downhill through bush in a south-western direction following rock cairns for 120m to top of cliff. It is a bit hard to spot as it's actually quite short but mega overhung. About 5 minutes walk from the carpark.

Cockatoomachoo 17 8m
Not shit, just short. The little grey rounded arete at base of descent gully with two FHs. Lower-off U bolt is well back from edge of cliff on boulder.

* Underpants on the Outside 20 10m
Fun steep route on far left end of cave with very high first bolt. Stick-clip it! Clipping the anchors is probably the crux, especially if you are short.

Bundy Project (Closed) 11m
Start as for UotO, then up and right past a couple more bolts to a killer finish.
* I Want Midget Strippers At My Bucks Party 25 13m
Outside the cave. Straight up slightly leaning wall then continue up arete. Hard at start and end. Could be a sandbag for some.

Project 2 (Closed) 28? 13m
Long move to begin on ultra slick rock, then traverse left along slippery break to jugs. Finish up steep black wall. Anchor is a bit too high - needs to be lowered to just over last bulge. Cameron did all the moves on this in 2009 and thought it would be grade 28. He has vowed to have another go in 2014 - stay tuned and stay off!
* * * Bat Hang 24 15m
The best roof route in the Shire? Long pumpy upside down climbing with incredible pocket in the middle. Start in back of cave on small ledge. Reach left to slopey roof flake, and follow this to huge pocket (double feet bat-man no hands rest!) Continue left on reachy jugs and pockets until it's possible to get feet onto small shelf and some respite for your arms. Continue traversing left and finish out of sight of belayer on small vegetated ledge on far left. Reverse a few moves then back-jump to clean.

Project 3 (Open) 10m
Intense roofing - like a three star boulder problem but way up high. Start as for Bat Hang for 4 bolts then go right and out the ceiling on spaced pockets to large pocket and single U-bolt and old homemade hanger in middle of roof. Back-jump to clean.

Project 4 (Open) 16m
A futuristic partially bolted project. Pocketed roof flake that turns into impossible blank ceiling (and fixed hangers). Good luck!

* * Suburban Reality 24 13m
Roof crack splitter that starts as thin hands and ends with overhung wide trench. Well protected by cams from #0.75 Camalot to to #4 Camalot.

Project 5 (Open) 8m
Mini (impossible?) bolted project. Starts 5m right of Suburban Realty. Bolts may be chopped eventually.

Project 6 (Open) 4m
Cam reckons this is worthwhile. Batman start using rusty death bolt then two ubolts up black wall. It is a closed project - stay off.
