Access issues inherited from Eastern Outcrops
Upper paths are steep, angled and slippery - use caution. Optus mobile phone reception is very poor
Move 20m right of Barringo Tower - there is a white gum tree in a steep gully. Option 1- Go up past this to the next white gum tree (cave to its right) near the top of the gully continue up and then around right to arrive at the top of the next gully. (some prefer to traverse right at the 2nd gum tree into the next gully) , Option 2 – Pass the 1st steep gully (with the white gum tree on your left) and go to the next rocky gully. Gumslinger starts on the right face at the very top of this gully.. Option 3 - From the summit access track, continue past the fenced lookout for about 75m, until just before the track ends and turns to a rocky scramble. Turn off to the right of the track and head NE for ~60m, tending right when you see the white gum tree (which grows from the base of the cliff, next to Gumslinger) to get to the access gully rather than the top of the cliff.
