Section navigation


This is a quality crack climb with solid exposure, committing moves and an off-width crack to finish. Take a #6 Cam and plenty of extendable draws/slings to minimise drag. Start 2 meters right of FiTS on ground level. Climb up and right to sling the obvious tree and then carefully traversing left again to the base of the obvious crack line. (This first section is a bit dangerous, so you may want to start at this ledge instead of the ground.) Follow the crack and choose the left-hand line at the fork, power up the off-width to the top. Belay from the tree or further back. Descend from any of the chains around the top of Katana.

Ethic: inherited from Mt Ninderry

Wear a helmet, use a stick clip, be safe and tread lightly and quietly. Be careful of the grass trees and orchids. Don't impinge upon potential trad routes with new bolts. Respect tagged projects and the individuality of existing lines. And please dispose of human waste properly!
