R of the black wall is a steep broken bay about 20 metres high. A dark, shaded bay, it is wet for a good part of the year due to ground water seepage. In summer this area stays shaded which makes it a good choice on hot days.

Set by Ross Weiter, 2015

18 Motherlode Sport 15m, 4

FA: Ross Weiter & Peter Thomas, 2015

24 ** Vombatia Sport 15m, 4

Gingerly negotiate the blocky choss to second bolt and pull past big moves up steep slab to reach the roof. Final moves require a little faith.

25 * Month of Sundays Mixed 25m, 5

Start below bolt (hanger required) and move right to FH (long draw to reduce drag) then delicately move back left to gain black slab. Hard moves up to groove and continue to small that takes gear.
