  <header access="Cleverly positioned so you can fit in at least two or three nightmare epics after work. The Quarry is on Waterworks Road (surprise) between Lynton Ave and Romilly Street in Dynyrne. Travel south along Davey Street (B64) heading for Ferntree (Mt Wellington), over the lights at the end of the Southern Outlet, and turn L at the first roundabout on Huon Road down Lynton Avenue. Turn R at the bottom of the steep hill into Waterworks Road, the cliff is about a km further on the LH side. After some debate as to whether they would close the cliff to climbers due to safety issues, the Hobart Council in their wisdom decided instead to clear the old quarry floor for parking, erect a fence along the cliff line, and even install a child-proof gate - plus of course the usual warning notices etc. We are in their debt!" acknowledgement="by John Domeney, originally published in Craglets. Updated by Tony McKenny, Dec 2007" guide.action="submit" guide.id="0" guide.page="0" guide.type="header" history="" intro="WARNING. A massive rock fall has occurred above and over Justin&apos;s Crack and Spiderman&apos;s Arsehole (18/11/2010). The cliff there is now extremely dangerous and unstable and more rock falls over these climbs are likely.        A rock is a rock they say, but if you think bolted routes take the adventure out of climbing then it’s time you paid a visit to the birthplace of the world’s next fad: choss climbing! Take one tottering pile of exfoliating rubble, add wide-eyed climbers with psychotic hammer drills and shares in Ramset. The result: a multitude of good routes carefully engineered so that every ascent is a first ascent i.e. all the holds break all the time. The procedure for doing new routes is as follows. Put on a blindfold, rap down, drilling at random. Carry a sack of rocks to place on holds so that every ascentionist gets a “unique” experience and every belayer gets a discount lobotomy. Remember, leading is the way to go here as the only other access to the chains is by jumping off the top and grabbing them on the way past. &lt;br/&gt;If you haven&apos;t got the message, the rock here is loose, and small and large chunks can and do come off - be warned. Oh, and take the stars with a grain of salt too (or perhaps some crumbly dolerite flakes instead?)." name="Waterworks Quarry" rock="Slabby, chossy, quarried dolerite" sun="Afternoon sun" walk="30 seconds" id="1" camping="" autonumber="true"/>

This route epitomises its creators hedonistic and sociopathic style and is a textbook case of man against rock, rock against gravity and gravity against the combined forces of Ramset and Ryobi. The first bolt, with its stark placement and uncompromising height off the deck, deftly describes mans inhumanity to man. It is also a vivid phallic symbol graphically outlining the first ascentionists subconscious insecurity about the size of his bit. The moves up the wall above form an abstract modern dance that brings to mind images of East European conflict especially the side-pull which is the key to reaching the third bolt and a new round of Geneva peace talks. A man will always return to old stomping grounds and search for his roots; pulling up on the crucial razor sharp undercut one can almost feel them. The heady aroma of vast African plains drifts tantalisingly through ones nostrils and momentarily the mists of time part, you run, then walk, then crawl back down the evolutionary chain until an apelike heave sends you scurrying up and over the crux. You pause to appreciate the moment and the true symbolism of the metaphor, but a glance at the vacant expanse looming high to the left tells you the best is still to come". John Domeney, Sep 1993. Many have puzzled over this eclectic description, but most have scratched their heads and abandoned their search for the elusive climb, believing it to be a complete figment of John's fertile imagination. The best bet is you traverse L after the 3rd bolt on TWMD, and surmount the overlap via another (hidden) bolt over the lip to the lower-off. Enjoy! NB The final moves over the overlap may have altered as a commonly used foothold fell off during the recent stabilisation of the rock to the L. Maybe a tad harder now.</climb>

In fact, it is quite safe. Climb up the loose pedestal and through shattered rock to a move R at the third bolt, then on to more solid ground to the lower-off.</climb>

The grade is anything from 14 to 20, presently about 17-18. At the RH end of the climbable rock are 4 bolts plus a lower off, with actually some decent moves in between.</climb>

A little discipline is needed to eschew the holds on the other two climbs but it gives an independent and surprisingly solid climb. Finish at the BLC rap chains.</climb>
