"The climbers were so thick they were like ordinary trees". Good to do if the other routes are busy though there could be a bottleneck on the last pitches of 'Tiptoe Ridge'.
Start: Start below big right-facing corner system.
30m (5) Up easy slab to rock rib just right of corner. Belay in gap between main face and small pinnacle.
10m (1) Wander across left to a stance closer to the corner where the 'Tiptoe Ridge' buttress meets the main face.
50m (6) 'Excellent' climbing up the corner to the notch behind the 'Tiptoe Ridge' pinnacle.
50m (4) Finish up the last 2 pitches of 'Tiptoe Ridge'.
- 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).
First Ascent: Greg Pritchard & punters from Melb. Uni, 1993
