Developed in the late 90s after discovery by Darrin Carter and Co., Serpent was Queensland’s first sport crag. Nearly all the routes are bolted, and all have lower-off’s. But true to the times, some routes still sport carrot bolts requiring keyhole hangers while others require a piece or two of trad gear. That said, there are some quality routes at this crag that is subject to peaks and troughs of interest by climbers.
Take a 60m rope and about 10 quickdraws. A couple of 60cm slings will be helpful to reduce drag. A handful of removable keyhole hangers will also be needed, for some routes still have a carrot bolt or two. The rock is very hard but can be brittle, so helmets are recommended. If like most you want to climb the classic Minotaur, take a large cam such as a #4 camalot.
