Description:

Closer to 25m than 35m. Finger crack in corner. An excellent route on exquisite rock after the first few metres which remain dirty. Starts on the L end of the buttress out East from Wilkinson's Lookout.

From the T junction where the track turns to the lookout, go straight ahead over boulders and down gully with a few cairns. You are look for a narrow gulch guarded by a large gum leading out to the main gorge. After the gulch is a little recessed square alcove on the left. SS is the left corner. A fixed rap rope from the tree is the easiest descent.

Ethic: inherited from Mount Buffalo

Trad climbing rules here! Bolts are a last resort! Most of the major aid lines can be done clean using modern gear unless noted. Freeing of aid sections should probably attempted as trad before resorting to fixed artificial protection.
