Eponymous super classic left-to-right traverse under the roof and topping out boulder.

The high traverse back from the end of 'Pipe Dreams' back to the start. Hands below the top.

Pipe Dreams in reverse. A good mix up to keep it fresh. Perhaps a touch harder then Pipe Dreams.

Link Upper Pipedreams into Pipedreams. Long, pumpy and awesome.

First of the up problems, from the big sandy footledge move out via two reasonable slots to finish up and right.

From the central underclings, move to the large break then up via the pocket, or forget the break and dyno from the undercling straight up to the pocket.

Just left of the two-hand feature in the middle is a good sized undercling. Start here and head out to a small slot above 'pipe dreams'. From here, left to a sloping slot, right hand good pocket, top.

Low, hard rightwards traverse from the double-handed feature, underclinging over to the crack and up

Linkup 'Upper Pipe Dreams' into 'Pipe Dreams' to the double heel, then into 'Rubble'. Described in the Sydney Bouldering Guidebook as not yet sent
