Description

From Hanging Buttress head east along the jeep track for 300m until the track heads down-hill to the R. The buttress is 30m down L. The rock on the buttress is fairly brittle, so leading is less desirable here than elsewhere. Nevertheless, it does provide very steep and strenuous climbing and provides the longest climbs in the area.

Ethic inherited from Rocky Tom

As top-roping is the status-quo, the climbs have been graded for a top-rope ascent.

Grade Route

Climb the arete on the LH end of the buttress.

FA: TR Christie, 1967

The face halfway between the LH arete and the chimney of Funnel-web. The first moves are fairly tricky. The rest is easier but steep.

The chimney which evenly bisects the buttress. Move out R at the top.

FA: TR Reg Williams, 1967

A devious and rather psychologically demanding little route. Start at the base of the chimney of Funnel-web. Traverse out on small holds, heel-hook onto the face (crux) then finish up the cracks and face above.

A testing route up the face just R of Funnel-web. Steep and worthwhile, though a little loose on the lower sections.

The wall directly above the cherry tree. The difficulties are proportional to the height.

FA: TR John Wholan, 1967

Just around the corner to the R of Spider Wall is a gently sloping face. Start with a good orthopaedic move 2m R of the arete, then follow the good holds above to the top.
