Description

From the intersection, turn left and head up the road. This is the first area on the left. There is a small boulder you pass with four problems on it. You can either turn off to the left and park or follow the road as it curves around the boulders to the right and park.

Sit start.

Sit or stand start up the thin wall.

FA: Sarah Fieg

Stand start at the jug just right of Thin Green Line, then up and slightly right into the scoop. An optional sit start is possible, traversing in past the bush a few metres to the right.

FA: Pete, 2016

Up jugs to the notch in the profile, a few metres right of Sideshow. An easy descent off this boulder.

Up the easy arete, right of Bolt Ons.

FA: Pete

Stand start and up, staying right of the arete and rib.

FA: Pete, 2016

Stand start and up the narrow slabby wall.

FA: Pete, 2016

Up and across the easy diagonal line, right of Marbled, to the notch in the profile (on the opposite side to Bolt Ons).

Sit start at the good spike and straight up the short wall, on the boulder behind Bolt Ons.

FA: Pete, 2016

Sit start and pop left to the scoop, then up.

FA: Pete, 2016

Standing start.

FA: George Fieg

Sit start and fridge hug the body of the boulder.

FA: Leeson Rose

Sit start matched on the block and trend right by following the arete ridge. Step out right towards Alien Craft and top out.

Sit start.

FA: Duncan Brown

FA: Duncan Brown

Low traverse from a sit start then up through crimps or via the arete. Goey.

FA: Duncan Brown

FA: Andrew Richards

Pretty standard stand start then up the arete. Getting off the boulder is the fun bit.

FA: Ky Wittich

On the back of the Stones Throw boulder. Stand start matched on scoop crimps at the left and go up trending right to top out.

A few variants of this are possible through the various crack-lines at the front and back of the boulder holding 'Zac's Arete', including down-climbing #17.

FA: Duncan Brown

Also called 'the nothing'. V8 in the guide which depends on beta that goes out right before heading up the arete. If you stick purely to the arete you could probably add a grade.

FA: Zac Vertrees

The direct version of 'Zac's Arete' heading up some minging crimps and poor feet out to the arete.

FA: Chris Webb Parsons

Variant of #17. 6+? On sidepulls and using the arete (toe hook/heel hook) but not the opposing boulder. 6 in the new guide but possibly harder.

Up the crackline using the arete/crack to ascend.

FA: Ky Wittich

Stand start at the arete and up, using the arete and the face to the right (the other block is out, otherwise you're doing Jaws of Death).

FA: Pete

Traverse slopers from a sit start to finish at the mantle for 'Mini Mantle'.

Mantle problem. Straight up to a rail then a goey mantle depending on your height.

FA: Duncan Brown

Very height dependent/morphological. From a stand, top out. If you can reach the higher crimps, consider taking the lower grade (V4 might even be appropriate), otherwise grovel your way up to the crimps and mantle. Has been flashed a number of times, including in dunlop volleys!

FA: Duncan Brown

Sit start. FA done in, you guessed it, socks.

FA: Chris Webb Parsons

Mantle problem. Crimps and up, fairly standard.

FA: Duncan Brown

Sit start and up Blue Balling. A long-term project - likely to be into double-digits.

FA: Duncan Brown

Desperate. Has only been climbed twice. Need to be tall, or wicked strong.

FA: Ky Wittich

Run and jump to slopers!
