Description

The Section of Frog contains the highest concentration of classic crack climbing that Frog has to offer. The pick of the bunch being the ultra-classic trio, 'Conquistador', 'Devils Dihedral' and 'Deliverance'. Lest we not forget about the often neglected super classic climb of 'The one that got away'

Access issues inherited from Frog Buttress

Access to Frog was recently restricted due to a phytophthora outbreak.

The rangers have installed a boot scrub station. Please use these and help prevent the spread.of the disease.

Approach

The section of the cliff starts from below 'Warlock Ledge' with 'Thor' continuing at ground level to the right along the cliff as you face the wall, till you reach "Oppenheimers Monster Pillar". Along the way you pass 4 small ledges and pillars which have some mediocre climbing, "Hollywood Rattlesnack Ledge", ""Straight Man's Fear Ledge", "Mr BoJangles Ledge" and "Ockerphillia Pillar".

Ethic inherited from Frog Buttress

Trad climbing centre, the routes with bolts are often quite sporting.

25 R ** Tantrum Trad 45m

Overgrown and overshadowed by its company it received little attention for years. A recent cleaning and addition of a piton down low (it was originally led with a pre-placed RP) has made it a more attractive proposition. Bridge up tree to get piton and an RP. Thin bouldery moves lead to very enjoyable and friendly climbing above.
