Description:

At the LH end of the Lower Tier, there are three buttresses facing towards Hanging Rock just before the cliff breaks down. These are reached by scrambling down below the Leaky Bucket area and following the path back up again on the other side of the first buttress.

  1. 39m Climb the mossy, slabby middle buttress (3m right of a burnt out tree which makes a good landmark) to the top

  2. 10m Move the belay by walking across the buttress to a large white tree and another big mossy buttress

  3. 33m Straight up to a steep wall with a crack. Move right below the steep wall to another bulge and finish up another crack
