18 The Climb

One of the best climbs for its grade in Australia! Climb the center hand/off-width crack that divides The Old Man pillar. Take big cams for top section.(can be done without big cams there are horizontal cracks that take smaller gear but bigger cams might make finding placements easier)

Boulder 3m Albany
20 Tombstone

Start from below Plumbline and travers left for 20 m and belay from below vertical crack. Second pitch is gold. Layback or fist jam your way up to nice hand jamming and finger locking. Belay from large ledge then go up chimney and keep going to top. First two pitches can be combined into one mega-pitch, but rope drag needs to be managed

V6/7 Double Roof

Sit start low under the first roof in the obvious chossy break then up the double roof feature trending left to the top. Looks meh, climbs sick. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1nw4_TFrnug
