Good climbing on generally excellent rock. Trad protection for the crux section (the first half of the first pitch) is adequate rather than abundant.

Vincent Lingiari, AM (1908 – 21 January 1988), was an Aboriginal rights activist who was appointed as a Member of the Order of 'Australia' for his services to the Aboriginal people. Lingiari was a member of the Gurindji people.

Vincent Lingiari confronted the vast economic and political forces that were arrayed against him and his people. In doing so, he won a victory that is one of the most outstanding achievements in the history of the struggle for the recognition of Indigenous people, their rights and responsibilities in the land, and their ability to practice their law, language and culture.

Start: About 50m up left of 'Tjuringa' Buttress is a low series of small roofs forming an 'inverted staircase' (starting about 2m above the ground and rising from right to left). Start immediately right of this at a small rock cairn.

  1. 35m (19) Up for about 7m, then move left a little, up another few moves, then traverse left a couple of metres. Continue up leftward aiming for the base of a reasonably prominent line up the face. Gain this, then savour the delightful climbing up it to a good ledge beneath a short thin face crack.

  2. 15m (17) Straight up. Descend from the top by scrambling about 50m to the right and locating the top of the 'Tjuringa' Buttress –there is a rap station here and another half way down (two 35m raps to the ground).
