Hello everyone !
I recently arrived in Tasmania as part of my cycling journey around Australia. Just spent 2 days in Hillwood and really enjoyed it, specially the quirky Far Side. Im planning to be around Lauceston for a while and then head elsewhere in the island.
Got some sport climbing gear including a rope but I'm very keen on finally starting trad. Did a trad course in NZ but never got to practice. Can climb 17s, maybe 18s once I warm up well :) Msg me if you're looking for a partner or know anyone who does ! My phone number is 0474 165 233 !
An aquaintance is coming to Tassie, and looking for a partner for some cool Tassie stuff.
She's a valley local, I believe, saw her there last Fall.
I think she climbs pretty hard.
Contact Alix Morris on Facebook, or post here and I will point her here.
Found a bunch of draws under The Blind leading the crippled at Waterworks this morning (29/11/2017).
If you know the owner, drop a message here and I'll get them back to you.

I'm searchig for climbing partners to climb outdoors. About me:My name is Tristan, I'm from Germany and came to Australia to climb as much as possible, i onsight about 22.(same as my age) I'm in Hobart for now. I'd love it if some local climbers coud show me around. Sadly i can't offer more than my company and a small sport rack.
If you feel like playing guide give me a ring or message (0439811216).
just letting you know that a guide to Hidden Zawn, a cliff developed since mid-2017, is now available and incorporated in the Cloudy Bay guide. There are many more routes to be done, so please update this guide accordingly!
More price drops! See individual items for details
As a preamble, the gear that I am selling is all in good condition. Some of it is has been around for a while - quite a while in some instances - but it has all been looked after well. None of the cams or wires have frayed bits. Slung nuts have had their slings replaced periodically as needed. Quickdraw dogbones are all in good condition as are any slings that are listed. People who know me will attest that I look after my gear well and dispose of anything that is dodgy. I've tried to price everything reasonably in the hope that I won't have to field endless offers. However, if you have any general questions or think I'm wildly optimistic about the worth of any items please contact me on douglascharlesbruceatgmaildotcom. If you're genuinely interested in a particular item and want a closer look I can send more detailed pictures if you don't live locally. Just send me your email address.
Any gear that is not sold locally will be subject to postage to be paid by the purchaser.
There's still a lot of good stuff here, go on ... you can always use another cam ...
all with dedicated biners, mostly colour-coded. See photo below.

There are 36 of these. Everything from a couple of beautiful, weightless Climbing Technology biners to BD Livewire biners to hoary old Bonatti Kong biners and plenty in between. If you know you're climbing gear you'll know what you're looking at. Prices range from $5 to $10. Open to offers on bunches. Make bid and I'll make a call, I just can't be bothered working out package pricing for this mixed bag.
NB: all the older $5 biners are gone. There are now 26 biners left. Prices from $7 for the likes of standard BD straight gate or wire gate biners to $9 for super lightweight Climbing Technologies or super bombproof BD Hotwire biners.
Screw gate BINERS: ALL SOLD
BD Hollowpoint Pack
20 litre capacity. Tough. You can haul this sucker and it won't rip apart.
... and that's all. For the moment.
I recently got asked a question about shortening the length of U-bolts when used in really hard rock like dolerite. This is based on the reply:
Found a pair of rock boots (new) out at Foucault Buttress on the Panopticon, Sand River, last Friday, 17 Nov. Contact me through Thesarvo for return.
On a whim, I did a search for all the starred routes that were done in 1967 and 1968, and are having the 50 year aniversary of their FA.
Here they are, collect them all!
First Ascent in 1967:
Excalibur Direct (ED)
Double Column Central
First Ascent in 1968:
Twisted Towers and South-East Summit
Tierry le Fronde
The Melbourne Variant
The Chimes of Freedom
Check it out at: North Sister. Thanks to Gerry for putting it up.
I’ll be in Hobart Nov 18-20 with a rack, a rope and lots of climbing psych! No car at the moment but I would be willing to get a rental. Anybody willing to show a visitor some local rock (cape Raoul looks awesome!)? I’m 28, have been climbing for about 10 years and lead up to about 25 on gear. Happy to climb easier or belay/second harder.
I've been told that someone was bolting the upper wall right of Ophthalmia and left of Peacepipe the other day. I climbed a route up there a few years ago but it seems to have missed making the guide... I found the original write up here though: http://www.thesarvo.com/confluence/display/thesarvo/2013/01/07/New+Routes+and+News+2013?focusedCommentId=294715394#comment-294715394
Perhaps what we climbed a few years ago didn't get put into the guide because of the note I made about the direct start (which has since been cleaned and top-roped - just waiting to be climbed, possibly with a few bolts of its own... still undecided on that one). Considering it is missing from the guide, I just thought I'd make sure that the existing trad route isn't in the same place as this new bolted/mixed route.
If anyone wants to talk to me about this directly without posting here, send me an email. I've added my email address to the About Me section of my profile on thesarvo for now (note: I'll be out of contact for up to a week from now though)
