The peak that is about 50m north of Balor Hut. It is also the cliff/peak you see on your right as you go up the first major set of stairs on the way to Balour Hut.

The north face is about 100m high, is quite broken and has a variety of rock quality. The south face is short but offers some fun top-roping that is very convenient for people staying at the hut. There are many more top roping options than listed here. Rigging top ropes is quite difficult though due to the lack of placements at the top of the crag.


To get to the main cliff (north face), cut straight across to the cliff from the stairs or walk north past the dunny at Balor Hut and follow the gully down for about 3 minutes.

To get to the top-roping area (south face) walk about 50 m north west of the hut.
