Access issues inherited from Handsome Crag

A locked gate has been put at the bottom of the old access road, but you can still use other access roads and some walking to reach the crag. The crag is on Crown Land and administered by Forestry Tasmania.

Approach

When you reach the old access road, turn right. Walk for ten minutes and you will see a large wall to your left. Keep on the road a little longer to reach two cairns, one on either side of the road. Head up to the cliffs from here.

Starts just left of Gratuitous Steel Insertion. Stick clip first bolt, or preclip when lowering of GSI. Bouldery start to gain arete, then slabbing to the GSI lower-off.

Starts behind the young gum. A possum sometimes sleeps near the anchor bolts, be wary.

Stick clip the initial bolt, from there it's a sideways traverse to the arête, and straight up from there.

Use the hand-sized vertical crack to pull around the roof to the face. 1 initial bolt, trad from there.

Delicate slabbing, starting from the ledge at the base of Mentzal as Anything. Climbs the right side of the right arete of the Touchstone Buttress.

Doesnt look too inspiring, but has great moves. Very bouldery. Located about 10 metres right of, and slightly uphill from, Mentzal as Anything. Up clean face with two prominent horizontal breaks.
