Long and slightly overhung routes, that usually start on jugs and finish through harder steeper terrain. Watch your rope length - many of these routes are rope stretchers and require a 70m cord to get back down. When lowering off the very top the belayer may need to use the supplied ‘lasso’ rope tied to a ground level bolt at the base Sanctum of the Victim to pull the climbers in from over the void. Or simply tram in to a halfway anchor or lower bolt, rethread and lower to ledge. This wall gets into the sun at 3pm in summer, although the steeper right side stays shady for an hour longer. In winter it gets almost no sun at all. It is wet weather protected providing there is minimal wind and no seepage at the very top.

It's within the National Park, act appropriately. No dogs.
All routes have lower-offs, but be warned - some are longer than 35m!
Ethic inherited from Oronga Crags
If bolting new routes please avoid squeeze jobs, linkups or variant starts/finishes. There is enough rock for heaps of independent lines. Go for a walk! If your proposed line comes within 3m of an established route, please ask the person whose route it is so as not to devalue their original vision.
