Great quality sport routes with a short walk in
A ten minute walk over a bare alpine plateau takes you to Mt Lindesay's cliff edge, where most of the climbs are concentrated aroud the look-out. Confusingly, there are two peaks by the name of Mt. Lind(e)say in the park. This one is the easily accessible one.
<1 km on easy terrain. Walk along the track towards Mt. Lindesay. Follow the yellow reflectors about halfway across the alpine plateau and then head left down a gulley or sloped terrain. When you see two small pinnacles, you've arrived at the start. The north wall consists of routes from Salad Days to night Moves. The wall the changes direction and becomes the East wall which runs all the way down to the striking corner of Beat on The Brat.
The 1993 Kaputar guide lists many trad climbs, but unfortunately someone has retro bolted almost all of the north face routes between 2012-16. This has been progressive along the cliff. The retro bolting has been done with ugly large fixed hangers. Many climbers feel that these routes should not be retro bolted, but as of May 2016 no action has been taken. Since 2014 Robin Barley has been putting up new routes along the east face. These are on camouflaged black hangers, and many routes are mixed, in keeping with the Kaputar trad ethic. He is definitely not responsible for the retro bolting.
