  <header access="The main climbing areas, about one hour drive west of Burnie, are reached via the C227 (Rocky Cape Road), turning off the A2 about 2.5 km west of the Rocky Cape township. After about 3 km take the first turn R  to the Burgess Cove crags, or the second turn R to the Light House (signposted) and the main climbing area. Park at the start of the walking track to North Cave (GPS RCP000).    &lt;br/&gt;National Park fees apply and can be purchased from the General Store at Sisters Beach, the Rocky Cape Roadhouse (on the highway as you turn into the park), and Service Tasmania statewide. Camping is prohibited in the Park and there is no fresh-water near the climbs. The nearest camping is at the Rocky Cape township, Peggs Beach just past Port Latta on the way to Stanley (free camping, no water), or Boat Harbour. Toilets are available at Burgess Cove and Mary Ann Cove.    &lt;br/&gt;Phytophthora, root rot, is a problem in the park so please make sure your boots are clean before and after your visit.&lt;br/&gt;&lt;br/&gt;&lt;br/&gt;Peregrine falcons nest on the cliffs so keep away from any nest and out of sight during the breeding season from August through to early December. The most common site of nests has been near North Cave, so there is a standing seasonal closure of the central cliff/Pink elephant area, and the ramp area. If they do appear anywhere else, such as Zorro wall, and you get persistent “hecking” calls from a falcon during the nesting period, back off. A retreat was made from the Ramp area in late Oct. 2020 when two appeared" acknowledgement="by Tony McKenny (based on an original guide by Neale Smith, Nick Williams and Rima Truchanas), originally published in Craglets 6." history="Glen Kowalik was the leading mover and groover back in the early seventies with ascents of Zorro and Shelob Stairs, two quality lines, but the main period of exploration was in the late seventies and early eighties. Local activists from the north west coast including John Richardson, Tony McKenny, Robert (Bird) Hamilton and Bevis (Fred) Dutton were responsible for pioneering a number of the better routes including the excellent Vader and Jamboree, but it was the dynamic duo of a youthful Nic Deka and Neale Smith, backed up by Nick Williams, who pushed up the grades, and the quality, with classics such as Juggernaut, Virgin on the Ridiculous and the desperate Scary Monster." intro="Opportunities for quality climbing are a bit thin on the ground in the Northwest of the State but the Rocky Cape crag is a gem. Located at the western end of the National Park, these orange and white quartzites are amongst the oldest rocks in Tasmania, dating from around 1.5 billion years ago when this part of Tasmania seems to have been part of North America.&lt;br/&gt;The crags offer a range of climbs in  idyllic settings beside the sea.  The main crag above Cave Bay has superb quality rock particularly at the north (L) end, hard and glassy, and steep although the rest of the crag is a bit more broken and a little loose in places. Most of the climbs can be climbed in one (at times, long, rope stretching) 50m pitch although many were climbed originally in two pitches or more. Decent from the cliff can be made down the gully just L of Vader, and R of North Cave. Check out it&apos;s position - some kind soul has equipped part of it but it can be difficult to locate from the top. A small cairn marks the top of the gully. Another exit is to walk to the southern (R) end of the cliff and walk down the path. There are also some climbs in Burgess Cove although the rock quality here is not so good.    &lt;br/&gt;&lt;br/&gt;This area is of great spiritual significance to the Tasmanian Aboriginal people, and Aboriginal sites such as the cave and middens are fully protected by law. Please respect the historic and spiritual values they represent by leaving them as you found them. We recommend that climbers avoid the routes round the North Cave area in particular.    &lt;br/&gt;" name="Rocky Cape" rock="Quartzite 10-25m" sun="Afternoon sun" walk="10mins" id="1" camping="" autonumber="false"/>

  <text class="text" id="6">The northern (LH ) end of the crag finishes with a very distinct orange wall (Zorro Wall) above Cave Bay. A rough track can be followed past the Lookout, down to the Bay. An obvious feature on the Wall is a ramp leading L from the high water mark which provides the first pitch for a number of climbs and which stops you getting your feet wet. However, the first few climbs are still best accessed at low tide.</text>

About 20m to the R of this is a similarly overhanging white cliff with a wide ramp as a base about 3 to 4m above the level of the cave.

  <text class="text" id="66">Drive to the parking area at the east end (R) of the beach. Walk along coastline east and up to the crag, a couple of hundred metres in all.

  <text id="75" class="text">Probably climbed on in the past (please feel free to edit if aware of any prior ascents/history). Fun little crag in a stunning setting - climbing here on a sunny summer's day is a wonderful experience. Just under an hour of pleasant walking from the carpark (Rocky Cape Rd) on Postman's Pass track. After twenty minutes or so you will come to Postman's Pass, turn left and walk along the coastal track for another twenty minutes or so. You will be able to see cathedral rocks on the left. The king line is Rorogwela, which is probably one of the best trad routes in the North-West. Definitely worth a visit for aspiring North-West tradsters. Please note that this was developed as a trad only area and is a 'no bolt' zone.</text>

  <climb id="79" stars="*" extra="" number="3" name="Groupthink" length="25m" grade="16" fa="O Cameron, YC Foong Feb 2017">The first 10-15m is pleasant steep climbing. The next line left of Hands-free manual disimpaction.</climb>
  <climb id="94" stars="" extra="" number="" name="Thoughtcrime" length="25m" grade="15" fa="C Arvier, I Cornes Jan 2018">Not bad. Start at the wide crack just right of Rorogwela. Romp up over a couple of ledges and finish as for Groupthink.</climb>
  <climb id="95" stars="**" extra="" number="" name="Rorogwela RHV" length="25m" grade="22" fa="C Arvier Jan 2018">As for Rorogwela, but avoid the top crux by heading right out of the pod with the use of a large jug on the arete. A good option if the swallows are nesting.</climb>
  <climb id="80" stars="***" extra="" number="4" name="Rorogwela" length="25m" grade="23" fa="YC Foong, O Cameron Feb 2017 ">A stonker of a route, probably one of the best trad routes in the North-West. Named after a Solomon Island folk tune which was plagarised by the French band Deep Forest without due recognition. Obvious line on the seawards face of the crag. Start on block in the middle of the face, up this for about 5m, then move right to the start of the left-trending flake. Up this until there is a massive rail on the left - from here go straight up the the pod halfway up the climb. Have a breather in the pod in a stunning position. Then up with a slight leftward trend to top - a fun crux sequence with incredible exposure.</climb>
  <climb id="81" stars="**" extra="" number="5" name="Rorogwela variant" length="25m" grade="23" fa="YC Foong, B French Dec 2015">As above - at the massive rail on the left traverse left on this, up and then rejoin the line at the pod. Avoids the first reachy crux on Rorogwela.</climb>
  <climb id="82" stars="*" extra="" number="6" name="Grandma Buzz" length="18m" grade="16" fa="B French, YC Foong Dec 2015">Start about 3 metres to the left of Rorogwela. Up faint line, then up to the middle break. Straight up over a steep finish.</climb>
  <climb id="91" stars="" extra="" number="7" name="Exit Route" length="" grade="3" fa="">Obvious gully to the left of Grandma Buzz. Easy down scramble.</climb>
  <climb id="86" stars="*" extra="" number="8" name="Cymande" length="12m" grade="12" fa="YC Foong, O Cameron, Z Gilovitz 2015">The lichenous looking crack 3m to the right of Chocolate and cruskits. Actually not a bad line with good exposure for the grade.</climb>
  <climb id="84" stars="" extra="" number="9" name="Chocolate and Cruskits" length="12m" grade="14" fa="O Cameron, YC Foong, M Bassett 2015">Some would say a terrible idea. The wide looking crack in the middle of the landwards face.</climb>
  <climb id="85" stars="" extra="" number="10" name="Gula Melaka" length="12m" grade="14" fa="YC Foong 2015">The crack 3m to the left of Chocolate and cruskits.</climb>
  <climb id="83" stars="" extra="" number="11" name="Have a shag on the nice flat rock under this instead" length="10m" grade="15" fa="YC Foong 2015">Meh. The line opposite the actual crag with a flake at the top. Title is self-explanatory.</climb>
