Description

Easy to moderate, barely protected slab climbing. No bolts should be placed on this cliff. All climbs are either trad, top-ropable or solos.

Access issues inherited from Mount Franklin

The area boasts some endangered fauna and flora and care must be taken to not damage any of the flora that inhabit Mt Franklin. Removal of plants could result in climbing restrictions.

Approach

Visible through the trees just north of the carpark.
