Drainage above Fruehauf

Since the houses have been built on top of Fruehy it doesn't stop seeping. Even after small rains it takes forever to dry. The reason is that the water drainage from the roads and houses directs all the water on top of the cliff. So instead of the grassy area that used to soak up all the water we now have a rivulet draining onto the climbs. Half of the cliff has been unclimbable most of days in the last weeks (and not just because of the rainy days). Is there anyone with a good connection to the council to achieve that the drainage gets redirected a bit further away from the climbs? Or do we have to dig a trench ourselves? Our afterwork cliff has been pretty busy lately but there were only about 3.5 climbable routes. 

Hi team, would anyone have objections to me replacing the tat at the top of third bird with rap anchors? Someone may have already done it, thought I'd put it on my to do list this season

Lost Gear

Trad rack and other gear lost, probably on South Bruny, by two impoverished student in the last couple of weeks . Reward to finders of course -  any info would also be welcome. Post a contact here if you can help.


2 karabiners (one with tape on it) found below Right Tower at the Panopticon yesterday (Tuesday 28th Sept). Post a contact if they are yours, will arrange to get them  back to you.

BTW, the falcons may be nesting again further up the valley - we have put up the "Climbers please keep out" sign as usual,  and ask climbers to avoid that area (left hand end) of the crag for the next few weeks.

Please post your questions here.

We'll collate your questions. What we can't answer this evening we will address at a future forum.

Name this seastack

I'm looking for the name of this particular seastack which is near The Lanterns, Tasman Peninsula. Rocks are the subject of my paintings and I'd like to give it the correct title.  Thought it might be Cathedral rock but not sure. Can anyone help me out? Robyn

If you were the last person at risdon boulder, you know who you are shame on you. I'm happy however to accept an ignorance plea,

so im going to offer some education free of charge. here in tasmania we use brushes to remove our tick marks, if the tick marks are as long as you arm, like some of them were at risdon could i suggest a really big brush, alternatively do small tick marks and give me all the chalk your saving and desperate to use up. if your poor feel free to let me know id happily donate a brush to your poor arse cause, as would many more should they be made aware of your plight.

many thanks in advance for your improvement in behaviour.
