The Belfry is the prominent spire at the southeastern end of the ridge. Crystal Voyager climbs the overhanging arete that stands out when you arrive.
The climbs are described in a generally left to right direction, starting on the east side.
There is a rap anchor on the summit - 30m to ground going down the west face. It's possible (but awkward) to abseil the other way with a shorter rope, ending up in 'The Belfry Access Route' gully. It is possible to chimney and scramble down from about halfway up 'The Belfry Access Route', which is a suitable descent for some climbs on the eastern side.©
The best approach is to park 100m after the final hairpin bend in the road. Walk uphill to the ridgeline, turn left and follow the fairly prominent track south for a few hundred metres. It is also possible to walk all the way along the ridge from the 'Tower Rocks' carpark (the track starts about five metres along the path down to 'Tower Rocks').©
