Used to be vastly undergraded at 14 though older masters of the thrutch maintain that the grade was OK.
The route originally started up the diagonal ramp from 'Vagabond' but noone does that now.
Start in the gully just above the tree, directly below the big orange corner.
15m (13) Pull onto wall and climb groove to large ledge at base of corner.
15m (14) The great corner leads to another ledge.
15m (17) Hard moves into the undercut corner and bridge to the top.
- Ethic: inherited from Arapiles
Mount Arapiles is first and foremost a trad climbing area. The few sport climbs tend to be in the higher grades where no natural pro is available.
Bolting, particularly retro-bolting, is discouraged and should only be undertaken after extensive consultation with the local climbers, first ascensionists, etc. Inappropriately placed bolts have been chopped.
Do not chip the rock.
Look after the park.
Stick to the paths.
Don't disturb the wildlife.
Routes near peregrine falcon nesting sites are closed in the spring.
Minimise the impact of your camping (fuel stoves not fires, take your rubbish with you, etc).
