|13||★ Jack of Hearts
The thin seam up the middle of the wall to the horizontal break, then up to a ledge and easily over the blocks at the top. Brass micro-nuts recommended.
|8||★ Corner R of Jack of Hearts
Unlikely to be a FA, but hey, I'll claim it until someone else does.
This climb has been upgraded from 8 to 9 in the 2011 Guide Book "ROCKCLIMBS AROUND MELBOURNE" by Glenn Tempest.
Ridiculously run out to the first bolt. If your sane, you can protect the lower moves by placing trad protection in the crack of Royal Auto.

2 FHs. Left of The Chuchu. From the second bolt, powerful span into the crack to the right and up this. Take wires for the top section. Trad anchor on top.
FA: Martin Lama, 1992
|10||★ The Chuchu
|25||★★ The Razor's Edge
Right wall of The Chuchu. Start as for Oona Poona past its first bolt. Instead of stepping left and up as for that climb, move up right to the dish and second bolt. From here continue diagonally up right and onto the run out slab.
FA: Martin Lama

Crimpy edges to start past 3 bolts, followed by easy ground through a jam crack.
|17||★ Can't Buy a Thrill
Quite a nice climb now with the addition of a fixed hanger down lower. Up the face on small edges in the pale water streak, past a fixed hanger and carrot. Finish up the jam crack. Double ring bolt belay at top.
