Good day out. Not as scary as the first time 6 years ago. Needs a bolt at the top of the chimney to avoid the traverse and a few bolts in the good looking head wall as a direct finish to round out a good day

13 R Margarine Ridge

Definitely a climb I won't forget in a hurry! The climb had breathtaking views and some sections of really nice climbing with good exposure, intertwined with 'pitches' of bush swimming. At times I felt like I was doing a canyon exit (alternate butterbox exit perhaps??) The topo was hard to follow and I'm not sure if we were on route for the first 4 pitches. But overall a wicked experience.

The first few pitches were pretty average (and I'm still not entirely sure if we followed the topo correctly...), but pitches 5-7 more than made up for it! High winds and light rain in the afternoon added to the excitement on the higher pitches and a decent amount of semi-vertical bush-bashing just added to the adventure. Our relationship with time was a little ambitious that day so we ended up doing the last two pitches in the dark. All-in-all a pretty good day(/evening) out! Double-ropes were very worthwhile and the #5 was pretty handy.

Pretty sure we picked the right line, found the key feature of thin plates exiting a cave to the right (P4 belay). However, when I got there, no bolt as expected, and actually, I was 1 level beneath the belay. Should've looked high left and would've seen Hayden's 20 year old piton still in-place.

Decided to abseil rather than continue up into the unknown.

16 R Monks Wall

Great day out in a spectacular and adventurous area. The rock is pretty poor and feels a little porous, so select cautiously.

Amazing passage through 2 overhangs on P4 & P5, very lucky key features just like climbing overhanging greens at St Leonards gym.

15 Monks Wall (more direct finish)

Some suspect rock, but well protected, adds 2 extra climbing pitches to Monks Wall route. Getting past the roof was easier than expected with good jugs.

Unfortunately this direct finish still ends with a fair bush bash up steep dirt.

Classic for those who like this type of thing. Faffed a bit on the way in (read: slept through alarm) and started climbing by 10am. Some decent rock between loose bushwalks. Some seriously dubious chimneying on the last two pitches. Great day out, back at the car by 10pm.

Fantastic mountain adventure - feels remote, great scenery & nice climbing. We found enough gear placements to be happy, but did pull a few holds off!

We linked pitch 8 & 9, up the chossy chimney to 1st roof, a committing step left to good holds, then an easy off-width body-jam up to the next cave & back you're on-route.

11 December 2010. Led pitches: 1, 3, 5, 7, 9. Second pitches: 2, 4, 6, 8, 10. A few borderline unprotectable pitches, probably some sections are harder than the advertised grade, almost as much bushwalking/gardening as there is climbing, moderately crappy rock... And amongst all of this, a few sections of funky adventure climbing.
