*** Made in Australia, from Local and Imported Ingredients (220m, 15)
This enjoyable cruise starts 5m right of the white streak of Sucked in Ben. Easily spotted, entirely equipped by ring bolts.
(i) 40m, 15 Up the well featured slab with crux half way up, to wide ledge. 9 bolts
(ii) 35m, 14 The steep clean headwall with huge holds, to another wide ledge. 5 bolts
(iii) 50m, 13 A huge pitch of face climbing, a bit mossy. 10 bolts
(iv) 55m, 12 Still more face climbing, passing rusty chains of SiB to their left, 9 bolts
(v) 40m, 6 Walk past 3 more bolts to the summit and last belay. Enjoy the views.

I hope you didn’t make Rachael carry all your stuff to the top !December 1, 2014 at 12:26 pm #150478
No, but she did solo the line first to see if it was worth bolting…..December 4, 2014 at 2:58 pm #150535

Glad you liked it, Jim.December 23, 2014 at 7:21 pm #150913
Climbed Made in Australia today, really great line.
We thought pitch two was easier than pitch three.

Hi Ross and Rachael
Climbed your line today. Very nice. Great bolting and the grades are about right. Rock not quite as clean as Raven or the climbs to the east but still a great addition to the area. Well Done.January 8, 2015 at 10:06 pm #151292
Mike – you could be right. Rachael thought the same thing. P3 is super long and kind of mentally taxing.
Patrick – thank you. It wasnt a cheap way to do it so great that people like it.
BTW whoever cleared the approach trail (the authors of Raven?) well done. AWESOME. You have made Gib Rock popular.January 10, 2015 at 4:54 pm #151313
A nice safe outing for those dipping their toes into multi pitch climbing for the first time.
I think the grading is pretty spot on. P3 is taxing on the calves if you haven’t been climbing much and on any of the first three pitches a step or two either left or right could change your perception of grade.January 12, 2015 at 8:21 am #151351
I climbed Made in Australia yesterday – very nice, well done Ross and Rachael. Grading is about right, to me P3 felt ever so slightly harder than P2 because of the length and the moss. So it’s a stiff 13 🙂 An excellent sustained lower grade line that deserves the three stars. Thanks Ross.February 6, 2015 at 10:42 pm #151718
Cheers Ross .there was an old faint track when we nailed raven so we marked it with pink tape every 10m and the amount of traffic since has cut it .have talked to ranger through my girlfriends work (natural resource management)and he is happy that we all stick to the one track and not random bush bash.we think it’s awesome that you have put up another one love your work..March 29, 2015 at 2:49 pm #152442
Climbed this one last weekend. Friendly bolting and gentle climbing. Thanks a lot Ross.
