Sport wall near andersons boulder area

Hey folks,

while searching for more boulder problems at andersons the other day, we came accross a good wall, probably about 20-30m high. It looked to have three or four obvious sport routes up it that looked well maintained, however we can't find anything either in the andersons guide or here on chockstone. Basically we followed a slightly overgrown but worn trail which skirted the mountain heading back towards the main walking track. The wall is a big semicircle, over hung in parts. The far left wall has some paint marks, but i don't remember what they were. Also, if the left wall is followed further around it comes

The routes looked pretty good but we didn't have our climbing gear with us, and not knowing the difficulty of the routes, we didn't want to get in over our heads. If anyone knows the name of this crag and any routes on it (perhaps it's on here somewhere?) then it'd be great if they could either reply here or email me at owen_fidler@hotmail.com. We're hopefully going to do another trip during easter, so if we don't get any more info by then, we'll be adventurous and send post up some pics and route beta.

Any help with be much appreciated!

cheers,
owen.

Perhaps, but we didn't see as many sport routes as what are listed there... but it makes sense. Will definately have a closer look when we go back... always nice to stop over at andersons on the way back from a weekend of easy leading at araps.

cheers guys, really appreciate it

It's definitely Amnesty Wall. Some of the routes are close together, and many of them are trad.
