Description

This is the seldom visited outcrop on the hill northeast from 'Sentinel Rocks'. The first two climbs are on the back-left side of the outcrop as you approach. There is one overhanging offwidth left to go - looks desperate...

Approach

To get there, walk along the ridge, trending right to cross a small, tea-tree infested, swampy creek and up the hill on the other side.
