Description

Directly above the cave, 10m uphill, is a couple daunting large noses forming a largish butressed dome. From one angle one looks like a Easter Island Moai, this is the 'Gwydir arete'.

Access issues inherited from Mt Yarrowyck

95% of the climbing at Yarrowyck is located on private property, but the land owner is a climber and has granted access to all climbers anytime. Please do not leave garbage around, leave gates as you find them and do not harass stock. Climbing at Yarrowyck is a privilege, not a right.

The other 5% is located on National Park land along the trail to the Aboriginal Rock Art site.

27 Gwydir arete Trad

In welsh means "sloping lands" , and is the name of a local river. funnily enough origionates from Gwynedd where i was last working. Basically, poorly protected first moves gets you to a peg, then the crux.

Amazing arete with a peg and wire low down then the crux, then your on your own for the balancy stuff. So basically soloing. There is a sling and biner around a branch high in the tree for toproping / pro.

On the uphill side of the dome, diametrically opposite to the two ballsy arete problems is a single problem so far:

An instant classic! Looks daunting but easier than it looks. From the cave walk left and bash uphill for 15m.

After stacking your mat's, start on the good left foot and then compression slap your way to the safety of the jug and then side mantle to the top.
