Description:© (willmonks)

An impressive direct line. Unfortunately vegetation has been winning the battle in recent decades as Buffalo's popularity has waned. Cleaning has resumed in January 2011 - get in quick before the mank comes back. Previously written up as being 117m, this is not possible as the cliff here is no more than 90m high and this route is very direct. The pitch lengths have been condensed to make the total length a bit more realistic.

  1. 27m (-)

  2. 30m (-)

  3. 33m (21)

Ethic: inherited from Mount Buffalo

Trad climbing rules here! Bolts are a last resort! Most of the major aid lines can be done clean using modern gear unless noted. Freeing of aid sections should probably attempted as trad before resorting to fixed artificial protection.
