Bold climbing up the wall 8 metres right of Subpoena. Up to ledge, (where protection is available) and continue to the cave. Step left and finish up the wall passing some loose rock along the way. (Simon Mentz, Glenn Tempest, Grampians Selected Climbs 2009)

Ethic: inherited from Black Ian's Rocks

To protect Aboriginal art work at Black Ian's Rocks, the VCC requests that you do not boulder in the cave (formally known as 'camping cave') and avoid these three routes 'No Rest For The Wicked', 'Jump For Joy' and 'In The Cooler'. It would also be appreciated if climbers used the left hand cracks to start 'Traversity Of Justice' and 'Malicious Intent'.
