Blueys Scoff

Have just read an interesting write up on the Blue Mountains in UKClimbing - which ends with this hilarious write up on Australian Cuisine, only an Englishman could rave about the kebab shop as a highlight of Katoomba:

"What’s the scoff like?

The cities of the Blueys are crammed with restaurants, cafes and bakeries, with cuisine as diverse as Thai and Korean! Why not try a delicious Kangaroo burger or, if all else fails, there is a bloody good kebab shop in Katoomba!"

The kebab shop is awesome! Not sure the words "perfect" and "Bluies sandstone" belong in the same sentence though.....

I spent a couple of days climbing with an English climber this week and it's such a beautiful place though, I think sometimes we take it for granted.

"There are far more sport routes than anything else, and these are generously bolted with glue-in “U” or Ring Bolts. .... A few routes are equipped with Carrot Bolts, ...But these are far outnumbered by the sport climbs, so can easily be avoided."

RB and UB outnumber carrots and trad? This didn't seem right to me but then I wondered if I'd underestimated the volume of new sport routes.

Has anyone counted?

According to TheCrag, it's 44% sport and 30% trad, the remainder being "unknown", aid, and bouldering. I think that most of the mixed climbs are listed as sport though?

The only place to eat is greesy joes in blackheath on the highway. Or the takeaway in oberon, its better imho.

Whatever the percentage there are years of quality mixed/gear climbs. Mt Piddington for example, do all the stared routes from Bonati Crack, via Forward, the Janicepts to The Second Last Coming and you have a trip. And there are bolted routes too.
