Cliffs Queensland is a non-profit voluntary organisation of climbers
who maintain the safety of rock climbing areas in Queensland.
Dangerous fixed anchors such as sun damaged slings, worn abseil
anchors and rusty bolts are replaced so that the climb is as safe
as on its first ascent. Environmental concerns are important to
Safer Cliffs Queensland and every means possible is used to camouflage
the replacement fixed anchors so they are less visible than the
original dangerous anchors. Equipment used is to the highest quality
and designed to last for many decades of regular and continued
use. Old fixed anchors that are not being used for modern climbing
will be removed and not replaced. We are not involved in retrobolting
routes without permission from the first ascentionists. Safer
Cliffs Queensland relies entirely on donations of gear, time,
equipment and money to continue work. If you have anything to
donate, please contact us.
This is an informal group of like-minded climbers who are willing
to discuss and give-back to the Queensland climbing
community. We can advise on the best bolting practices, cheapest
locally available bolts and use community
discussion to make sure we are doing the right thing.
DISCLAIMER No single fixed anchor can be guaranteed safe. Natural cliffs are geologically formed places which are constantly changing and as such no anchor placement is always safe. Time, weather and other naturally occurring instances will damage all anchors over time. Safer Cliffs Queensland does not recommend trusting your life to a single anchor. Unless you are willing to take responsibility for your own life then do not rock climb or abseil. Rock climbers do not sue.
