The highest place to climb at 'Buffalo' with a good range of excellent routes. Super easy access up the tourist track to the huge lookout.

Useful Info: Best Routes:

Big Fun (15**)

'The Pintle' Left Hand Varient (16**)

Hoi Polloi (16*)

Peroxide Blonde (20**) - would get 3 stars if it was longer.

*Please use the two new carrot bolts to rap into Big Fun/Peroxide Blonde/The Pintle LHV rather than going off the lookout handrails as the rangers will get quite antsy if you do.

*Don't forget bolt plates as almost all the bolts are carrot style (no hangers).

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.
