Follow the river east from The Paddock, eventually crossing the Petrie's Gully tributary and continuing to follow the river for a brief distance to an obvious track. Head north on this, looking out for a cairn marking the start of a very indistinct trail which zigzags up the steep loose slope. When the cliff line is eventually gained, carry on northwards until a chain is found, use this to gain the next level. (If you reach a giant sandstone arch, you have gone too far north.) Continue north along the base of the cliff, carefully at times, until a scramble up can be made. It should bring you to Channel 9, with routes to the left and right.

Left corner. After topping out of the crack, scramble up to tree belay.

Flake a few metres to the right of the Cool Tool corner.

Straight up the line of carrots (optional wire placement higher up). Ignore the scoopy holds on Scanner just to the right! Crimpy and sequency for those without reach.

Steep finger crack with offwidth start.

First pitch climbs up and traverses right (19) to the base of the crack (21).

Follows the bolts up the ironstone bands and through the big scoops. Optional wire placement between 2nd and 3rd bolts. Tops out with 2 bolts just over the lip. Rap off tree in the corner a few metres away.
