A good wall approach to the fantastic 'Dinosaur Gully' DF. However the start is a bit gnarly, the hanging belay is a nuisance, the flake on the second pitch seems dangerous and ... It's good but not as good as might be hoped. Also, the start is wet for a long time as it's subject to seepage from the soak at the top of pitch one of 'Edge of Reality'.

Take some big gear and lots of slings.

Start: 'Flake' pillar about 7m left of 'The Last Act', as for 'The Edge of Reality'.

  1. 20m (15) Up flake pillar, taking care with rock, then tend left up easy orange wall to semi-hanging belay at major break. Belay when you first reach the break as it makes changing over much easier.

  2. 25m (17) Swing up left over pocketed bulge. Once over this move right, up small corner to hollow flake (take care), left along flake then up left to belay below overhang.

  3. 45m (17) Bridge around overhang and continue up to small grassy ledge (belay here if you did a shorter second pitch). Up short corner to roof and traverse right to the arete. Climb the crack above in an outrageous position past a series of bulges to a terrace.
