Description

This is a continuation of the Lower Tier - on the RHS of the waterfall, and has a few challenging climbs on grey stone of varying quality. The obvious rockfall is above!

WARNING: Beware of the massive rockfall on the top of much of this cliff as it is extremely loose with much scree and loose rock on top. We didn't witnessed anything come down on our 5 days there, but esp after rain, you never know.

Access issues inherited from North Grampians

This area is now reopen after the fires in early 2014.

Descent notes

You can walk L from any climbs just to the R of the waterfall. Climbs further on finish at a rap station (32m).

Rather mossy adventure wall climb that is quite an outing. Start about 20m R of the waterfall behind boulder. Up shallow corner seams (committing). R at rooflet then trend back L above, heading for the final corner. Guarding the corner is an enormous, hollow sounding block which can be avoided (but appears attached). Launch into final corner (crux) and trend up final juggy wall to belay below final terrace. Take very small wires to a size 3 Camelot.

The following 3 routes are located on a smooth S facing wall at the far RH end of the rock-scree. They finish at a rap station that is at least 32m from the ground. You can only just get down with a 60m rope - beware.

LH of the 3 lines.

A bouldery start (FH) leads into more moderate climbing, up the crack. Hard moves where the crack bends slightly L, then R at the horizontal and up to FH, where final hard reachy moves lead to slopey ledge. Bonus points for finishing direct up crack, without going into the corner.

Start on the R at the overhanging arete with FH. Pull hard to gain the line, then up to fixed thread, traverse up and R around the nose, then trend forever up juggy arete until you reach the ledge.
