This sector encompasses a number of walls and buttresses starting at a deep cleft/gully just past the sandy traverse under a roof with a fixed rope handline ( care needs to be taken here) and extends to just before you reach the waterfall. There is also an access route with rungs and a fixed rope about 15m left of This Wretched Life. This allows quick access to the top if you find yourself at this end of the crag at the end of the day.
Access issues inherited from Lassiter's
A five minute flat walk through the bush to get to the clifftop from the parking on a dirt road. Another five minutes walk down an easy scramble gully to get to the routes.

Not bolted yet. It starts about 4 m to the right of Pavlovian. I guess it needs a Batman start (unfortunately), up to a ridiculously hard roof move and then sustained face climb. At least grade 24, I reckon.
PROJECT UP FOR GRABS! Top part could also be a more appropriate variant of Pavlovian.

Don't let the batman start put you off as the climbing is both exciting and technical. Start under the hanging corner/seam next to a small spotted gum. You'll need Batman's assistance and sports a couple of rungs to assist. Layback and bridge the steep corner/seam to the roof, launch right to the jugs, then on to the easier exposed arete to the anchors.

Great climbing with the crux down low followed by easier and enjoyable climbing to the top. Start as for Moral Compass to the 2nd bolt. Traverse right and up to the obvious crack which is followed then up the easier wall to anchors.

Ascends the attractive blank looking wall bounded on the right by twin cracks and on the left by a corner and large roof. Start off the block. Superb, thin and sustained climbing to the footledge is followed by a sustained easier jaunt to the top.

Start as for Moral Compass,then step left at the second bolt. Thought provoking and sustained climbing to gain the foot ledges with a final tricky move before the cruise to the top.

Takes the line just right of the bushy corner Start on the grassy ledge. Some thin sequences at the start lead to a mantle and on to the flake system and on to the anchors.

Takes the seam up the overhanging rusty wall 2 m right of the ferny crack.
Starts at the little flake line near the left end of the orange wall capped by a large roof.
