A nice crack system runs on either side of the buttress, and there is good climbing on the main face. This is the same cliff as Punters Pinnacles [see previous crag]
This is the same crag that Chris Baxter and Stephen Hamilton developed in 2008 and named Punter's Pinnacles [see previous crag]. Some of these routes are probably repeats although most of the face routes appear to be new. It is popular with guided abseiling groups during the week. The face routes appear to be devoid of any protection.
Access to the top of the cliff is to the right. Be advised that the cliff is in plain view of the walking track! Keep a low profile
Where to stay
As this is so close to Halls Gap, there are plenty of places to stay!
First written up by Chris Baxter and Stephen Hamilton in 2008. It has been visited many times over the years and several of the routes had been climbed previously by guided groups and local climbers.
