Approach

The approach to this crag stumps a lot of people! The trick is right near the start. It's pretty flat and obvious for a couple of hundred metres and then you get to some big round boulders. There's an obvious track heading up the hill right of these. This is not the way to go!!!! Go LEFT instead. It's bushier but there is a track and it takes you the shortest way.
