Get directions to here using Google Maps.
Some of these climbs were OK about 20 years ago, but now that the track is closed and is an overgrown jungle requiring machetes and napalm to breach it's just not worth the effort. All fixed pro is now nothing more than rusted blobs of history.
The first set of climbs are about 100m left of The Big Block.
Navel Research is another 100m further left.
70 further left, near the point, is also home to the most evil looking crack - C is a large hand sized roof-crack with evil black coloured rock.
