Has steadily increased it's reputation over the years, and is now considered by some to be one of the best 19s at 'Arapiles'.

Start: Start in the chasm between the 'D Minor' Pinnacle and the 'Piccolo' Pinnacle, on the 'Piccolo' side. Approach by going L around the back of 'D Minor' Pinnacle. The logs and chain in the gully are for erosion control; they are not designed or to be used as belay anchors.

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).
