This fairly major, walled peak is about 5 km NE of the Needle. The peak has three main faces, the left and middle of which are the highest. There is a fine descent gully through the middle (Head Wall) face and the long north bluffs (Whale-back Crag). The left bluff (Tower Bluff) breaks up to south where there is one route so far.

Access issues

Access is through private property. The 1994 guide recommended phoning Coonabarabran Bushwalking Club. Please update this section if you have any information about how to gain access.
