Anteater Buttress
13 Bubble Gum

Start: The flake crack high up in the gully at the left-hand end of the south side of Anteater Face. A good warm-up.

Up crack, then delicately across flake, then easily to top.

FA: Rob Dixon & Brian Birchall, 1975

Trad 40m
16 Hubba Bubba

Start: 1m right of 'Bubble Gum'. An excellent alternative start to Bubble Gum. This is now the way to go.

Layaway and jam up to the overlap crack then continue as for 'Bubble Gum'.

FA: Kevin Moore & Dave Worthington, 1986

Trad 40m
22 Slow Fade

A long and sustained first pitch (best to do it in two pitches, belaying off double bolts), Double Ropes essential (make sure they are both a full 50m). Take one bolt bracket, eleven quick draws and a #1 Friend to back up the single bolt belay, and some wires to protect the short easier second pitch.

Start: The first slab on the main slabby face, right at the left-hand corner, a couple metres left of 'Freedom Crack'.

  1. 50m Use a stick to clip the first bolt, then climb (crux) directly up to it. Move up and left delicately to next bolt (a fall before clipping this results in a ground fall), then continue up broken flakes to cleaner friction slabs above and double bolts. Some parties belay here Continue up smooth slab to horizontal break, step up over this to bolt belay.(#1 Friend in break at your feet).

  2. 30m Straight up the final short crack as for 'Snakeskin Flake', then continue up to belay at trees.

9 Freedom Crack

Start: Scramble up through the fig tree to the right of 'Slow Fade' to a stance at the base of a crack about 10m up. A suberb experience for new climbers. Most beginners end up being taken up this on their first visit.

  1. 30m Up the crack past a large pine tree to a sentry box.

  2. 30m Up crack, then traverse left along break and then easily up to top, and tree belay.

FA: R.Dixon & B.Birchall, 1975

13 Snakeskin Flake

Start: One of the best climbs on the slab. Scramble up to base of a large flake crack a few metres up right from 'Freedom Crack'. A classic. You have to do it.

  1. 10m Up fist-jam crack and fig branches to long ledge.

  2. 30m (crux) Up flake crack (protection difficult to place) to an overlap, then step delicately left into a sentry box.

  3. 30m Up to thin crack and follow this to top. Tree belay.

17 Slap and Tickle

Start: As for 'Snakeskin Flake'.

  1. 40m As for 'Snakeskin Flake' to the top of the flake, then step right over the overlap then up the slab (veering slightly right) to a double bolt belay.

  2. 30m Straight up the slab (no runners) then slightly right to the chains above 'New Romantic'.

FA: Paul Colyvan, Al Stephens & Larry Dixon, 1983

Trad 70m, 2
22 Fashion Conscious

Start: The slab between 'Snakeskin Flake' and 'New Romantic'. It needs a direct finish and a bold leader.

  1. 30m Straight up the slab via 4 BRs then traverse left to the double bolt belay of 'Slap And Tickle'

  2. 30m As for 'Slap And Tickle'.

FA: Paul Colyvan, 1994

22 New Romantic-Direct Start

Start: At the slab 2m. left of the original corner crack start. A very scary direct start to the original route. Feeling lucky?

Straight up the black slab passing to the left of the first bolt(but clip it). It joins the original route at the second bolt. Continue as for original route.

FA: Mark Colyvan & Wade Fairly, 1989

Trad 30m
21 New Romantic

Start: An excellent friction slab. About 10m. right of 'Snakeskin Flake', scramble up over some large blocks to a ledge below a clean black slab with a corner crack on your right. Take 6 BR's and some Friends for the crack. No protection on last pitch!

  1. 30m (Crux) Up short corner on your right to top of block, then launch out up the slab, going slightly leftwards to start, then straight up past 4 BR's to a small stance and double bolt belay (one above the other).

  2. 30m Continue straight up slab, no protection, to rap chain belay.

17 Cock and Pullet

Start: One of the best named climbs at Moonbi. At the crack start of 'Slabba-Dabba-Do'. An excellent climb but the protection is very poor. Don't fall!

  1. 45m Left and up onto slab, then straight up to some wire placements in a small groove at about 10m.,then straight up from here past two fixed hangers, then easier ground to double bolt belay (difficult to find).

  2. 6m Up slightly left to chain belay.

FA: Paul Colyvan & Mark Colyvan, 1986

Trad 51m, 2
17 Slabba-dabba-do

Start: Below obvious crack line that blanks out about 10m up. There is no protection after the end of the crack. A serious lead.

  1. 10m Up crack to a hanging belay at its top.

  2. 45m Take a line of least resistance up the slab above, which tends to lead you straight up to start with and then up left-wards towards the top, no protection!

FA: Robert Stazewski, 1975

20 Head Over Heels

Start: Originally graded 22 by the first ascent party who actually got off route! About 8m right of 'Slabba-Dabba-Do'. Yet another great route. Quite run out in the lower section and the last part of the second pitch. Don't fall off.

  1. 35m Up slab past 3 fixed hangers to ledge and double bolt belay.

  2. 20m Traverse out right and up past 2 more fixed hangers and a big bucket, then go straight up the line of easier buckets (no protection) to bolt anchors on top.

24 Head Over Heels-Direct Finish

Start: From the belay at the end of the first pitch. A hard and bold variant finish.

Straight up through the headwall above the belay past a BR. to a bolt belay.

FA: John Wilde, 1990

Trad 15m
18 Henny Penny

Start: Very popular. Originally done as one pitch with huge rope drag. Most parties now belay approx. halfway, at the start of the steep section.

  1. 25m Straight up to the steep section.

  2. 25m Straight up, then move diagonally right, then straight up to top. Double bolt belay.

21 Buck Buck Bacaw

Take 6 bolt brackets, a #2 Friend, and about 8 quickdraws. Start: Half-way between 'Head Over Heels' and 'On the Slack'. An easy slab followed by a steeper slabby wall. It's a beauty.

  1. 20m Up easy slab (one bolt runner) to just below headwall, Bolt belay plus number two friend in a pocket.(If in doubt use the 1st bolt on the headwall as well).

  2. 34m (crux) Up the headwall, step left, then straight up following the seam past 4 BR's,and a small chicken head at the start of easier moves. Belay on two bolts.

18 On the Slack

Start: At the righthand end of the Anteater slabs, below the prominent limp phallus (otherwise known as the Anteater'). Popular and well-protected.
