Description

The wall immediately below the only wheelchair-accessible lookout at the gorge, near the left-hand end of the gorge carpark (if facing towards the gorge).

Approach

Approach the wheelchair-accessible lookout, but stay to the right of the walkway when the fence begins. Then duck left under the walkway and continue down, taking care. You will pass a wide crack (the back of Cacophonic Crack), then continue following the wall around to the right until you come to the ledge at the base of climbs 1-3. Most other climbs come up the slab below this ledge, except for Bureaucrat, which is accessed via Glass Gully.
