Hello all,

I'm off with the girl to Tas, taking a sport rack.
I have had a look on the net for sportable crags in Tas and have narrowed it to:

-Handsome Crag
-Mt Brown and
-Underworld at Coles Bay

What guides are available for these places?

And; does anyone happen to have any used guides on these areas that they would like to sell/ or lend me for the trip....

Use these guides:

I used them for Freycinet and Wellington and found them very, very useful.

Didn't you already have a topic about this?

Adamsfeild is really not very good. Its unique, yes, but not very inspiring. Short, sharp and atrocious weather. We name dit the field of pain as it cut our hands to shreds. Also the whole gate key situation is a bit of a nightmare.

>-Handsome Crag

I've never been there - but my impression is that its a 'locals' crag - rather than anything you would travel overseas for.

>-Mt Brown and

Yere! Now this place is WELL worthwhile. If the surf is up avoid though - its gets some seriously nasty swells rolling in.

>-Underworld at Coles Bay

Not exactly a popular spot. I've done one route there (the 26 through the roof?). The bolts were pretty rusty (and this was 8 years ago) and the climbing was a bit chossy and scary. The other routes didn't exactly inspire either. Star Factory was much nicer.

If you want to clip bolts Hillwood is a top spot for a few days. Much better weather than down south as well usually.

The original post was added to another Tasmania thread, over in the appropriate Crag and Route beta section ... (where this thread should be!)

Kind of, I piggy backed on a thread someone else started but wasn't totally clear on where to go.

I thought I'd do a bit of research in where I could go, and devote an entire thread to me, all ME!

Mostly good sport:

Some ok sport routes:

Mt Blackwood was terrible. It made SE Queensland sandstone seem bomber.

Has anyone been to Cluan Tiers near Westbury. Is it any good? Looks OK going by the descriptions.

Epic info guys.

I'm amped!
