Quantcast

Joe’s Garage


This crag was opened by Tony Lourens and Beth Higgins (in honour of the Frank Zappa). The routes are long. Access: Walk up the track, take the Rose Bowl path on the right and follow for about 10 minutes. In front of a small rock buttress follow cairns leftwards through a shallow ravine to gain the top of the ridge. See also SA Mountain Mag Issue #4 for Photo RD.

Approach

Start walking up the Rose Bowl Gully, then turn off left and head for the crag on the skyline.

Routes

There are two multi-pitch sport routes. You can do any combination of first and second pitches, since the routes are close together, and share a stance halfway up. The second pitches are a bit nicer than the first pitches.
