    Just cleaned and climbed a large splitter crack on the North side of Mt Clarence Albany. This is a line in a pretty public and convenient location in the middle of town so I am very surprised if no one has climbed this. Judging by the amount of lichen I cleaned off it, it would not of been for a long time. If anyone has climbed it before, please let me know.
    To get there find Middleton beach road in Albany. Head east and turn up Burt st next to the primary school. Turn left onto fox st and left onto hare st (yes that was fox and hare!). Park on the little gravel parking area on the left hand side of the road and walk up the gravel road on the opposite side. Immediately walk through the metal DEC gate on the right and follow the track up hill, The splitter crack is clearly visible at the top of the track ( approx 80 metres up)

    Clarence Crack 10m(Gr 20-21?)- Start in the tight but short chimney until you hit the small roof. hand stack, fist jam and grunt your way through and over the bulge. Hand jam your way to the top as the crack narrows slightly. Abseil down the opposite side or down climb the back gully. 2br on top for belay (need hangers). Protect with medium to large cams. A great little crack for practicing your jamming techniques. taping highly recommended.P. Maher and D. Reed 03-02-2014.
