The northern sentinel which favourably featured, with a large variety of caves, slabs, overhangs and cracklines.

Access issues

Recommended to discuss access with a local, can be tricky to find the carpark and requires a 4wd access.


From the carpark continue up the steep track to where a foot pad branches off R. Take this for approx 80m and take the faint L footpad going steeply up the hill to Juicy Buttress. Go L around the base of this and across the steep hillside to the base north sentinel. You are just down hill of the large and obvious Fishbowl.

Where to stay

Plenty of varied accomodation in Townsville. It is also possible to camp on the saddle between the north and south sentinels but be prepared to carry all your gear up the hill.


Mixed, trad and sport routes all exist here.
