Wolf's Lair

  - South East Queensland
    - 04 - Sunshine Coast and Surrounds
      - Brooyar
This area is unlocked for editing, and its routes are unlocked. Route additions are allowed.
Description:Good short and steep climbing, with mostly better rock quality than many Brooyar crags. It has little future potential and is limited by the combination of a largely blank lower overhanging section leading to an unpleasant meander through the lichen on the upper section. All bar one of the current routes follow weaknesses through the enjoyable overhung lower section and finish at a lower-off.
Location:Park at faint fire road that disappears sharply right as you drive up from the campground (marked with cairn). Follow line of cairns down sandy descent to the right end of the cliff and either traverse across narrow sand covered ledge or head lower and re-ascend to the height of the climbs.

    Predator     IMG 13m 24mixed
 Thin slab and pockets to chain.
The right most climb at wolf's lair. Approximately 2m right of Awesome Wells.
Thin slab (FH) to ledge. Up overhanging wall (#1 cam & two FH's) on great pockets to awkward finish clipping chains.

    Awesome Wells   -   verified     IMGIMG 15m 21sport
 Intricate and interesting climbing.
Start just left of boulder, almost directly under chains for Predator.
Easy climbing up slab leads past 3 BRs to interesting moves to gain FH and step onto ledge. DON'T get lured right to the chains for predator. <br><br> Shares double ring anchors with awesome fearsome.

Start 2 metre left of Awesome Wells directly below ledge and anchors.
Straight up through powerful moves onto ledge.

 Poor quality climbing.
In corner 2m left of Awesome Fearsome
It follows the corner up until you are standing on a ledge next to a large epiphyte, then traverses R to the arĂȘte and finishes up the dirty, sandy slab with good pro in the crack in the wall to the R. Not recommended by the first ascentionists.

    Sheep Clothing 13m 21mixed
 Stickclip FH then boulder up overhung wall trending right past BR to mini roof and ledge. Thin moves continue up a faint corner past a BR & #1.5 SLCD to finish at chains.

    Suitboy 13m 21mixed
 Layback up corner on natural gear to overhung arete. Clip FH and climb up and left to jug on lip. Clip BR and mantle ledge. Up face above to chain.

    Carnivore     IMGIMG 9m 28sport
 The hardest route at Brooyar went begging for 11 years! The recipe blends some modern techo bouldering with some old school flavour in the form of tough fingerlocks...mmm, zesty! Rebolted after the first ascent (four rings) to encourage repeats! U-bolt for belayer on ledge to start and rap anchor at top.

    Bio Logic 12m 13sport
 A moderate grade swim through the lichen.
Rap down to tree belay at base of two arĂȘtes.
Climb the right arete past three BR's and a chicken head sling. Overhung in places and very juggy.
FA: Dan Meyers and Neil Monteith - 1997-10-26
    The Big Bad Wolf 16m 23sport
 Powerful overhung moves through roofs.
Start near at left end of wolf's lair.
The line of ring bolts at the far left end of Wolf's Lair, about 10m L of Bio Logic. Through a small rooflet, then up a blank corner/face, to rest beneath the roof. Swing out the roof on jugs passing two rings and an optional #3.5 SLCD. Pull the lip (no pikers!), and finish hands-free to double ring anchors.
