Description

A landmark huge block with a few interesting crack routes.

Access issues inherited from Halls Gap Area

A low profile always helps to avoid too much attention from tourists and park rangers

Approach

From Delleys Bridge at the NE entrance to Halls Gap, walk 500m S on the walking track on the E side of Fyans Creek until below an obvious massive free standing block. Head up 60m through bush to this.

Ethic inherited from Halls Gap Area

Bolting, is considered illicit, along with the rest of the park and other National Parks within Victoria. Only alter routes after considerable consultation with first ascensionests and local climbers.

Below Boulder Rock is a short wall leading up to below overhangs. The crack up this wall then traverse around R to below Time Warp.

FA: Chris Baxter. Stephen Hamilton

Takes the line with a steep thin start L of Time Warp. Looks much harder than 17 and unprotected.

FA: Kevin Lindorff, Peter Lindorff & Jerry Maddox, 1982

The steep dogleg offwidth crack is quite a struggle. Take BD 3s and 4s.

  1. 18m Straight up the crack, through bulges, then onto a small stance.

  2. 7m Up easy rock to the top.

FA: Kim Carrigan & John Chapman, 1974

Easy access up the back of route. Large corner with bulges on easy terrain. Good for setting up anchors at top and for abseil/top rope access to cliff.
