Fourth pinnacle. Quite wide, the brushed streak of the first two climbs is visible from the track. Go down hill as for Bellybutton and warty tree pinnacles and contour across and around downhill side of pinnacle for other routes
- Access Issues: inherited from Bulahdelah
Parking can get a bit congested at times so it is best to carpool if possile. If heading to the Goat Cave then do not drive in or park in front of the gate as the neighbouring landowner has indicated he doesn't want cars blocking access to his property. Park to the side of the gate and walk the fire trail.
- Ethic: inherited from Bulahdelah
If you intend to bolt then it is best to speak to the locals as they will inform you of the do's and don'ts of bolting in the area.
