Mt Piddington (Piddo) is the heart of traditional climbing in the Blue Mountains.
Once home to the hardest climb in Australia, today Mt Piddington is both a popular training ground for aspirant traditional climbers and a proving ground for established climbers looking to push their limits.
Route names like The Eternity (18), Solomon (20) and Janicepts (21) echo through the hallways of Australian climbing history. These routes have shaped Blue Mountains climbing and are still thoroughly enjoyable test-pieces today.
Located near Mt Victoria, Piddington is known for its sun-drenched corners and cracks, but like many traditional crags in the Blue Mountains, you’ll find a combination of pure traditional routes alongside mixed routes and even a few bolted lines. Routes here are predominantly single pitch, but you will find the odd two to four pitch route if you’re looking for something a little longer.
$760 for 2 people weekdays. Recommended maximum: 3-4 people.
