Corner R of Jack of Hearts / Corner crack
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.

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

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