Description

Almost-vertical wall above the left-hand side of the Lower Slabs characterised by a large grassy ledge.

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

The Terrace can be reached by climbing any of the routes on the Lower Slab. Alternatively, you can scramble up the right hand side of the west face and walk along the base of the Main Wall to the grassy terrace.
