The best thin (exciting!) single pitch face climbing in the Ampitheatre, possibly the best of its style in the 'Grampians'. 'Excellent' edges, horizontals and pockets on gritty rock. This is the most developed cliff on the vast blob of rock below 'Lower Taipan Wall'. Due to its exclusion from the Tempest/Mentz Select Guide this area has been totally neglected - which is very unfortunate as it really is a fantastic crag. Some of the routes are almost sport-climbs and others are definitely not. Shade until early afternoon. UPDATE: This wall has been totally smashed by the fires, but climbs and bolts seem to be in good condition.© (nmonteith)

Walk up Flat Rock and follow the track past 'Epsilon Wall' to a track on the right about 100 metres past 'Crossfire'. This track comes to you courtesy of the Department of Name 'Changes'. Follow the track down into the valley, cross a log-bridge over a swamp and continue for about 150 metres. The cliff can be seen up to the left. Head up through light bush (small cairn) to the cliff. In all, no more than 30 minutes from the car. People tend to arrive at a flake-buttress (Rosy The Riveter) that marks the left side of the main wall. Alternate access: Easy walk up from the 'Camp Sandy' track.© (nmonteith)
