Description:© (Ashy)

A classic bit of exposure. Was once three stars when you caould hang by one arm from the chicken-head - only worth 1 star now that sombody snapped it off.

Watch the rope length when lowering.

Start: Start by walking up the track to the left of the little grease cave.

Ethic: inherited from Illawarra

Lots of bolts in this region. Most development has been done after the 1980s.
