Approach


Thaiwand Wall is to your left as you face out towards the water at Railey Sunset Beach. At the end of the beach locate a trail that makes its way up towards the wall. There are a few alternate trails but all the trails that lead up will lead you to the wall. The furthest right trail leads to fixed ropes that lead up a steep section to the base of the wall. These fixed ropes end at a bamboo ladder.

Route Description


Circus Oz is actually a four pitch climb but I have only done the first pitch and can only give details to it. The 4 pitches are rated as such 1st Pitch 6a+ (5.10c) 2nd Pitch 6b+ (5.11a) 3rd Pitch 7a (5.11d) 4th Pitch 6b (5.10d).

The first pitch is approximately 25 meters long and has 6 bolts and 2 slings in which to clip to. It is easily identified as the route that begins 2 left of the bamboo ladder and just right of the easy route that follows up the cave. The route begins and goes up about 3 meters and then starts making its way back towards the left. It follows the arete for a short section and then makes its way back to the right.

Essential Gear


This is a sport route so a small rack of quick draws is sufficient. This area is mostly in the shade but can still be warm so bring water along.
