5.9 Sport (8 bolts) 25 metres - Claim-It-All wall (south)

Claim-It-All is one of the furthest crags from the Braesyde parking. It's east facing, so great climbing on cold mornings or hot summer afternoons. Though it is a long hike in, it is a busier crag than you would expect due to it having a large number of high quality moderate grade routes.

Piggy Monster and Iliad are in the centre of the southern section of Claim-It-All. Running from halfway up the cliff face on the left, diagonally down to the ground in the middle of the cliff is a ledge called Broadway. These two routes share a common start about five metres to the left of where Broadway the dirt, and just left of a route called Homer's Wake.

These two routes share the first two bolts until shortly above Broadway, then Piggy Monster continues up just right of a couple of short right facing corners. Iliad moves right to just left of another larger right facing corner to finish with some interesting moves to share the same anchor as Piggy Monster. The small space between the two routes offers plenty of possible variations.


From the stairs, follow the loop trails in a counter clockwise direction, passing the Elusive Edge, Blazing Buttress, Grassy Glades the Euphorium. Shortly after the Morning Glory wall the main trail heads left. A well beaten trail heads slightly right and downward to Claim-It-All, easily identified by it's red stained cliffs. The wall is split into three sections, south, centre and north. Descents from all routes are by rappel or lowering off the top anchors. Check for anchor wear before considering being lowered off.
