Follows the incipient curving crack system, first protection a high peg. Follow the crack, trendibg left after the peg then back right and up the groove.

FA: Bryce Martin, 2018

The obvious crack line less than a meter left of Ignimbrite which nastily retrobolted it. Watch the rock quality down low. Name and grade provisional pending more information.

Great climb. Steep start up to ledge, thru steep section, over onto slab.

FA: Simon Cook

Easier start to overhang, then onto slab to anchors.

FA: Bryce Martin & Roger Bays, 1990

Steep start to technical face on small pockets all the way to top.

FA: Luke Newnham, 1991

Great arete climb. Up thru crack to start, thru short groove on to face. Move left then back right onto the arete and power up to mantle for anchors.

FA: Luke Newnham, Bryan Moore & Bryce Martin, 1990

FA: Dave Vass, 1991

Hard start off the ledge to fingery technical crux. Continue on through sharp pockets to finish.

hard back and footing to layback and anchor off trees. Good fun 15.

Steep powerful climbing on pockets leads to and exciting finish.
