Honeysuckle Crag – Namadgi

Rockclimbing

½ day doing cliffcare tasks and ½ day climbing.

Many popular climbing areas have groups which take on cliffcare tasks – Arapiles, Blue Mountains etc. Typical tasks are track work, erosion control in descent gullies and rebolting routes with safer technology. Along with a good sized group from Canberra Climbers Association we worked in the morning then climbed in the afternoon. Charles and I climbed the classic of the crag, a 3 pitch route with a nice corner system then a run out slab followed by a steep wall to a final crack system. Deep Space/Sickle link up *** climbing. The crag has a different outlook to the main Booroomba Rocks – only a few distant signs of civilisation in a sea of rolling montaigne forest.
