Boaty McBoat Face

(2 routes)

Boaty McBoat Face is the Steep Brown Cliff next to Bridal Veil Falls. On the the scale of rock quality it doesn't get better. Logistical issues abound but it's definitely worth the trip no matter where you're from.


There is a fixed hand line at sea level to get you to the bottom of the first pitches.

1 Big Fish 28
Starts at a black fixed line at sea level. Follow this is a single ring where the route starts. The first pitch suffers from seepage early in the morning. Best to climb and fix this in the afternoon and climb the rest the next day or rap in from the track. Single rack to #2 with doubles in 0.3-0.5. Small to medium wires only. Handy to have a tag line and haul a small pack. Too hard to climb with a pack on for most.

Start at the Black fixed rope at sea level. Traverse under the first pitch of "Big Fish" and all the way right to the hanging bush ledge. two bolts mark the start of the route. Recommend clipping in as ledge is questionable and start of first pitch is hard. 6 draws, 6 extendable draws & 2 60m ropes. Great Rock, technical sequences and Outrageous exposure.
