Around the corner and up the hill from Jack Of Hearts is a gully. This is the steep crackline on the right-hand end of the wall on the right side of the gully when facing uphill, about 1m left of Queensryche.

FA: Andrew Corlass & James Falla, 1986

The arete 1m right of Ayatollah Magoo.

Set by Grant Baxter, 2015

Follow crack system diagonally left until small roof is reached / 'Queen of Diamonds' is intercepted. Then right again and finish up 'Jack of Hearts'.

FA: L Baxx, Grant Baxter & Stephen Baxter, 2015

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.

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.

FA: .

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.

FA: Russ Crow, 1985

Starts up "The Lazy Yak" until it joins "Lara". Out across wall past 2 BR's into "Megs's Misfortune". #2 BD Cam here then across wall past another 2 BR's then up to anchor. Large wires and BD cams to #2, or equivalent.

FA: L Baxx & Grant Baxter, 2016

Start around right of "Tree In A Crack" on horizontal crack below "Royal Auto". From here; directly up until joins with "Lara".

FA: Grant Baxter, Stephen Baxter & L Baxx, 2016

The thin crack just R of the nose leads past a tiny tree and moves right into Laras Knockers

Climbs face between 'Tree in a Crack' and 'Lara'

FA: Grant Baxter, 2015

The left of the two obvious trenches in the face where the path arrives at the crag.

Starts just right of Laras Knockers, with easy climbing to the first (disconcertingly high) bolt, then becoming harder towards the top, with a committing finish. Double ring bolt loweroff marked in topo is at least 5 meters back from the top of the climb and is shared with adjacent climbs.

The right of the two obvious trenches in the face where the path arrives at the crag.

FA: 2009

Starts up 'Megs's Misfortune' until just before first bolt of 'Buckingham'. Tend diagonally up and join 'Buckingham' for second bolt and rest of climb. Take cams to protect crack and slings to extend.

This climb has been downgraded from 17 to 15 in the 2011 Guide Book "ROCKCLIMBS AROUND MELBOURNE" by Glenn Tempest. Double ring bolt loweroff marked in topo is at least 5 meters back from the top of the climb and is shared with adjacent climbs.

Tricky start (crux) to carrot bolt. The easier moves to the top.

The last climb on the far right side of the crag. Delicate start to bolt, then though easy ground.
