Main Cliff, (Millennium Wall)

(10 routes)

Having got to the main cliff follow a rough track down to the far-left hand end of the crag till you come to an obvious right facing corner crack system capped by a roof, this is the line of Millennium Madness. Three meters to the left is a small picnic area and a short corner crack system, the start of “Supper C. Ellery” and “Rotovagus”.

Type: 
Wall
Access: 

To get to the Main Cliff continue down the road/track veering right at the 2nd fork then down this road till you reach the river and a steel water pipe. The cliffs in this area are referred to as “The Pipe Line Wall”. Follow the pipeline down river till you reach a stream. This means you’ve gone to far. Backtrack 10 metres then take the track marked by a couple of poles. This leads up through the bush cross a large slip then up a series of steps to the crag. The track meets the Main Cliff at the Galaxy wall area near “Hand Christian”. For the Main Cliff continue along the track that leads along the base of the cliff to the fare left end.

Direct Start to Super C Ellery. Thin, technical, bouldery climbing past three bolts to join Super C Ellery at the no hands horizontal where that route leaves Rotovagus and heads up the wall. Finish up Super C Ellery.

Start up the short corner crack, then move right into the adjacent crack system. Climb the crack and groove above, past one bolt, then continue up easier ground till you reach the small overhang (bolt) which is climbed utilizing the right arete. Move back left and continue straight up to the DBC belay. Two cruxes one at each bolt. (Pro: SCD, CD, Wires, 2 Bolts)

Up the start of Mellenium Madness on trad then at the good stance under the big roof (which no-one had thought to climb?!), step left to bolt and punch it through a powerful yet technical boulder to the lip, then weave up the headwall above!
