|Description:||This Cliff is most famous for The Lonely Sea Block which boasts a handful of absolute Grampians classics. Whilst the routes around The Lonely Sea are on many climbers tick lists it would be a shame if the other routes here were ignored. For the adventurous trad climber looking for single and multi pitch routes in the 18+ range there are some good outings to be had.
Like Barbican Wall this is a good summer destination as the cliff is shady for much of the day, and thankfully the rock here at Barbican Rocks is markedly better than Barbican Wall.
Be warned however that a number of the older easier routes ascend some of the most disgusting looking gully lines ever climbed and recorded as routes. Some work still needs to be done clearly identifying where some of the more recent routes are actually located.|
|Location:||Follow Redmans Rd 3.7km from the Halls Gap/Dunkeld Rd. A small bridge crosses Barney's Creek here. Park just the bridge. Cross back over the bridge and head uphill looking out for the odd tape marker. There is no real track.
With a few new abseil stations this area is a little more user friendly but more are needed. At present mechanical abseil anchors are only available at the top of TLS block and above Pineapple Jack. Neither of these are accessible after topping out on the cliff. If climbing at the RH end of the cliff find a tree to abseil off, there are enough of them around. At the LH end there is a steep unstable descent gully just L of Pineapple Jack|
