One of the best link ups in the cave! Takes in a lot of climbing, and a lot of cruxes.Climb Tropic Thunder to above its last bolt, sticking the hard crux side pull, but instead of moving right to clip anchor, move left and finish up GR.

Ethic: inherited from Mt Coolum

The cave has been largely developed in the last 10 years We value our relationship with the National Park and expect all users to respect this. It is essential not to disturb the wildlife and stay on the track to limit our impact.
