A breadknife pillar hidden in the wilderness. The forest is so dense that all but the top remains shady all day. Bring insect repellent!!


Drive 750m north from 'Black Stump Buttresses' to where a small road (numbered "5341 42") turns off to the right. Park here. Head west into the bush opposite this road (so same side of the main road as the other 'Brooyar' crags) and pretty much straight away you should spot a large rock cairn. Follow the cairns through the bush for about 10 minutes - keep a little left and don't walk down the hill if you can not find the cairns. Scramble down either side of the pillar.
