The Zoo

(23 routes)

This is the first cliff reached after climbing down the rocky step in the track and rounding the corner.
For some climbs anchors may be hard to find and are sometimes well back from the cliff edge. There is one set of bolt anchors (above Transmogrification). For the first few routes anchor to a large boulder. Trad routes in particular are likely to be a little loose.

The wall and arete right of Kingfisher. Start as for Kingfisher and move right on to the slab below the overhang. Clip the bolt and turn the roof using holds to the right. Climb the arete above past another bolt and good natural protection. has a direct start with a bolt and shares the anchor with the previous climb

Climbs the centre of the prominent wall capped by an overhang. The overlap now has a bolt and no longer requires natural pro. After the 2nd bolt, trend leftwards through the bulge to good holds at the 3rd bolt, then slightly right and follow a faint crack up the overhanging headwall. Now has a two-bolt anchor at the top; original anchor was in a boulder about 5m back.

A dodgy proposition. Start up the steepening wall a metre left of the corner, move slightly left at the bulge, and finish at the top crack. Minimal natural protection, very loose.

The broad arete. Good wires low down lead to moves on rounded holds and poor protection. Not a sport climb. Marcus Thomas, 2000.

Around the arête is this short right-facing corner-crack. Having good climbing with plenty of protection, this route is well suited to beginners. Cam anchors.

A short wall two metres right, with a crack leading leftward. Use it for protection initially and then place a wire in the crack to the right near the arête. Loose rock adds to the excitement, though the gear is OK. At this grade finish up the wall directly. (It's easier if you move right to the arête).

Around the arête is a wide crack to the left of the shrubbery. Clip the bolt near the arête, then move slightly right toward the second bolt and straight up to the top. Cam anchors.

Description for "Elephant Beer" seems wrong (or is in the wrong place?), since it doesn't match the location.
