Access issues inherited from Mount Coree

The Coree Summit Trail is currently open (as of late April 2017).

Approach

Park at the last bend and either approach straight down a gully or via Wind Wall.

Option 1: head straight down the loose rock and drop down the little gully on the left (probably a grade 4 downscramble - either down the wide chimney or down a 3m blocky drop-off). This will put you in Pretty Gully, with Raining Pleasure on one wall and Shish.. on the other. For Pretty Backside, walk around the corner to the right (facing downhill).

Option 2: The safest way to access the area is from Wind Wall. Walk to the bottom of the wall, and continue downhill for 5-10m. Turn right and wind your way through the shrubs under the boulders and over a small slab. This will bring you to the base of Pretty Gully and then on to Pretty Backside.

Option 3: Park on the bend just before the gate (second to last left turn) and walk onto the edge of the cliff to stand on top of Pretty Backside. There are ring bolts about 5 meters beyond the small boulders on the top just as it starts going down. Lower off the first set of bolts. You may want to protect the access to the rings with sling around one of the boulders.

Descent notes

All the old galvanized hardware appears to have been replaced by some outstanding pillar of the climbing community. All bolts are now stainless. Anchors are typically fixed hangers with captive rings.

Grade Route

A nice line rising leftwards from the left gully.

FA: Rickard

One metre left from Climb C ... still climbing toward the front of the blunt "backside"

FA: Rickard

One metre left of School Girl Fantasies. Beautiful clean rock on this one.

FA: Rickard

A pleasant route, with the crux being a slightly blanker section then up through to fourth class territory before the chains. Bolts a bit rusted but still in good nick.

FA: Chris Warner

A lovely little ramble, with the first bolt being in good position if you wish to start straight underneath it in the gully, or giving a good little runout if you start at the bottom of the cliff. Once you've passed the last bolt it's fourth class territory to the chains.

FA: Nathan Wales

Fairly easy lower down, the crux is to find the point in the overlap at which you step over onto the arete.

FA: Nathan Wales

The crux of this route is just above the first bolt, after which the rest will feel quite easy! The hard moves through the roof are above the indicated grade; or you can use the fairly obvious overlap lower down and climb up the arete to get to the fourth bolt.

FA: Nathan Wales

A rather odd climb - some quite easy moves up to the first bolt, which continue up to the second, before which the climber is within ground fall territory. Joins up with 'Super Discount' after the third bolt. Similar to Super Discount, if you choose to go through the roof, expect this to be quite hard for the grade. However the smarter move would seem to be trending left to get around the arete...

FA: Nathan Wales

An interesting climb, with reasonable moves down low turning into a heinous crux just above the third bolt. One for the tall climbers, or shorter people willing to dyno.

To the right of Memory Relapse across a small steep gully. Starts in gully then Follows arête and the face above to anchors.

To the right of Climb D around the corner of the same chunk of rock. More info needed.

FA: Chris Warner

Open project, right of 'Shish'.

Shares chains with 'Shish'.

Rising out of the bushes on the wall below Meet Her at the Love Parade. A great first lead.
