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.

Follow the crack line to the left of Book Thief

Project - Stand start on two small small side pulls, punch up and right to the arete and continue up just left of The Book Thief.

The striking highball arete on the main face of the boulder. Sit start on the jug at the bottom of the arete, lob up to the sloper and continue up past edges and pockets before cruising up the highball victory head wall. The easiest way down is to down climb the headwall and jump onto the pads.

It's very hard to say how hard this is, maybe around V-6ish. Sit start with your right hand on the bottom most hold on the flake and the left hand on a small edge, slap up the flake to the jugs and head up the easy top out.

SDS under 'arch' where Book Thief Bloc leans on Eco-Terrorist Bloc. Move up and left along right arete of Book Thief Bloc.

These next two problems are on the small steep face to the right of the Book Thief Block. This is the Eco-Terrorist Block.

The left hand arete sit start to Eco-Terrorist. Sart left hand on a dimpled sloper on the left hand arete and the right hand on a slopey break low down on the face, punch out and up to finish up Eco-terrorist. Harder than Eco-Terrorist.

The main face with two cracks spilling down it. Start with the left hand in the three-finger pocket and the right hand on the edge at the bottom of the crack, bust up using underclings and side pulls. There is a direct sit-start to go using two sloping edges on the face below.
