"Any object, wholly or partially immersed in a fluid, is buoyed up by a force equal to the weight of the fluid displaced by the object." Routes like this are why you travel for hours/days to get to the 'Grampians'. Often worked in 1 pitch from the ground.
Start: Start under a low bolt at the base of the most impressive part of the wall.
20m (22) Up past the bolt then R along a break to a semi-hanging belay.
30m (26) The grey line of holds up the otherwise blank wall. Sucks up dozens of med-large wires. Often done on preplaced gear which probably drops a grade.
10m (26) A little boulder problem around the roof past a bolt. Nobody seems to bother with this.
First Ascent: Keith Lockwood (p1) & Steve Monks (p2&3), 1991
