Two pairs of Scarpa Techno X

From the Scarpa website:

“For all day adventures, crack climbing and smearing on dime edges; the Techno X redefines the ability to combine comfort with power in a flat-lasted shoe.”

From Wild Earth’s website:

“The Scarpa Thunder is a multi-purpose Lace-up rock climbing shoe that offers you unrivalled comfort, precision and support when you re scaling the heights. The suede leather upper, mesh tongue and advanced lacing system provide great fit and breathability and will mold itself and stretch, whilst the new Vibram XS Edge rubber delivers superb stability SCARPA wants to encourage you to keep your shoes on, rather than taking them off as quickly as possible, and so ensure hours of lasting pleasure on the rock!

The Thunder is your best friend on easier climbs where its suede uppers and the lacing system combined with a comfortable mesh tongue provide incredible fit and breathability.”


One pair of La Sportive Miura Size 38 $55

Nicely worn in, still completely sound structurally, re-soled and re-capped.

Evolv Bandit Size 43 $25

Quite good condition apart from a split between the rand and the sole on the left shoe (see photo). Would still provide plenty of service, particularly in the gym or as a warm-up shoe for climbing outdoors.

The boulder guide to Mount Wellington is getting unwieldy. Heaps of problems and heaps of photos. Great, but makes it hard to find things (plus I get pumped scrolling). 


Can we split the guide into two? Perhaps lower/higher or Dolerite/Sandstone.


Happy to put in the eLabour, but wanted to see what others think and how to best go about it.






From Bartlett, Mathew 

The City Of Hobart will be treating environmental weeds on a number of cliff faces around Hobart before the end of June. The two sites with public access include Waterworks Quarry in Waterworks Rd and Fruehauf in Tara St. Notification signs will be placed at the Quarries to inform people of what is happening but it would also be great if you could inform members of your group.


The sites will be closed during the weeding works but it is estimated that each site will only take one day.


The work will involve the treatment of the woody weeds at the moment because of the growing conditions. Other weed types are scheduled to be treated at a later time.


Do not hesitate to contact me if you have any questions.

Hi, I'm thinking of writing a history of Tasmanian climbing, coffee table size with lots of pics and stories. I'd be grateful for any advice on format, where to start (ascents of peaks by bushwalkers? or just origins of roped climbing), and any contributions of photos, and people I should talk to. This could be a lovely momento for the climbing community for years to come..I look forward to people's opinion, advice, photos, stories etc. Thankyou, Gerry Narkowicz

Access to White Water Wall

The access to White Water Wall is now kinda fucked unless you have a 4wd

Most people will find themselves walking in.

Its around 30 minutes to the White Water Wall campsite

But if you are climbing around the Tetragrammaton a new track has started to be developed which takes half that time.

The track has been cairned (could do with a few more) and starts 1/4 way down the 4wd drive track and ends at the top of Tetragrammaton buttress.

I've added the GPS coordinates for the new track here Coastal Crags

lost gear

I left an ascender and etrierre at the top of flange butress on saturday (June 3rd).  If anyone found it I'd be psyched to get it back.........I'm happy to provide some beers as a reward.



It's a hangboard.

For rock-climbing training.


1000 mm wide; 170 mm high. Mega jugs, mono, bi and tri doigts, slopes, pinches and edges. In other words all the fun things.

Old style, so perhaps not so "ergonomically" (or politically) correct. See attached photos.

Collection only. Call 0407 310 287


New mini route in Cataract Gorge?

Does anyone know if the thin crack problem on the small yellow buttress (6ish metres high) directly below Offal Buttress has been done before? Surely it has, because its very obviously visible from the shady side. It doesn't seem to be written up anywhere. It goes in the low 20s. If nobody claims it I've got a good name for it....



Heggie, Steven (Parks)

Hi all. My yellow half rope is stuck below the Indian Summer anchor, about 25m above the ground. It should be accessible via Breaker Spur, Indian Summer or the Indian Summer rap.  I'm offering a case of beer for anyone who retrieves it. 


Hi all, just stumbled across this old post: 

Nerm at Andersons

The boulder looks so f$@king rad, can anyone tell me where this is and if it's still accessible?




Hi all!  I'm visiting Tasmania for a couple weeks and was keen to climb the sea stacks down on the Tasman Peninsula.  Looking for a partner who would be interested in climbing with me and who would is familiar with the area.  I've got a 70m rope and full trad rack myself.  I'll be in the area this week (April 11th through the 14th) as well as early next week (April 16th through 19th).  Please shoot me a message if you're interested in climbing together!


0436 480 549  or

I've just moved to Coles Bay, so don't know any competent climbers yet: get in touch if you need a partner, or are happy to climb in party with 3+. Have rack, happy to belay better climbers for chance to improve skills & fitness. Will travel elsewhere in Tas, naturally

Currently the description for Exocet reads:

★★★ 38. Exocet  48m  26  
A total classic. 1. 18m 17. Climb up No More Mr Nice Guy to the traverse line and then continue up corner to DBB. 2. 18m 26. The pumpy thin crack up the overhanging arete and around the corner passing a bolt (crux) to another DBB. 3. 10m 17. The nice hand and offwidth to the top.

It should read:

★★★ 38. Exocet  48m  26  
A total classic. 1. 18m 17. Climb up No More Mr Nice Guy to the traverse line and then build a gear belay at a comfortable stance in the corner. 2. 18m 26. Climb the pumpy thin crack up the overhanging arete and around the corner to a DBB. Note that the bolt that protects the crux moves around the corner is missing and while the route is still adequately protected for the leader, a fall from the crux by the second will result in a massive swing into space and an obligatory prussic up the rope. 3. 10m 17. Follow the nice hand crack to the top.
G. Phillips and S.Young 2007.


1) No DBB atop P1

2) Missing crux bolt

3) P3 has no OW
