1. Mt Kaputar 20 routes in Area

Mostly Unknown

Try and get the old Colyvan/Lattanzio guide book which at lest has a sketch as to the approach. Following the rock guide written description is difficult.


The guide says 15 minutes. Ian Brown was on some heady cocktail of speed and LSD no doubt. Follow the wooden stairs to the trig. Hop the fence and walk north along the ridge. After about 10 minutes of bush bashing a small cliff band stops you so drop to the left (west) then walk under the cliff back east and along the ridge some more. You can see the pinnacle below you to the NE, attached to the approach ridge by a small saddle.Drop down and skirt under more rock then follow the base of the south cliff down and around to the eastern aspect. Tussock grass covering the rock means rapping may be quicker and safer at one point.
