Access issues inherited from The Dark Side

There are no known access issues, but the area is relatively untouched, so treat it with respect. Try and avoid damaging vegetation, and set up an abseil after the first climb, to avoid trampling vegetation on top of the cliff.

Ethic inherited from The Dark Side

All climbs are traditional, and bolting is strongly discouraged.

Not TeDiuM, actually quite nice. Climb the blocks to the hand crack, then climb the crack to the top.

There is still good in him yet. Start in the obvious corner as per Learning to Fly, break left at the roof and traverse under the lovely jambs. Pull on to the wall above and savour the glorious face climbing with fantastic gear.

Start in the obvious corner below the stepped roof, break right and launch through the stepped rooves on the right with long moves up to the ‘morgue’, harder moves lead to easier ground and the final thin corner.

Corner climbing. Right of do or do not.

Obvious line through the middle of the wall R of Boga. Wider jambing initially leads to lovely hands, arrange your gear before the crack peters out below the sloping narrow ledge, slight traverse left then up the glorious finger crack.

Start at Jabba’s feet and ooze through the rolls, reach out to the white fingers on the right of the roof then follow the arête and cracks above.

If you do one route here make it this one! Immortal. Through the middle of the overhanging face with a bit of everything. Sting in the tail at the final seam.

FFA: Jack Mattinson & Tim Smith, 18 May 2013

Start as for the Sith. At half height resist the temptation of the dark side (the direct finish), use the force to gain the right trending crack.

FFA: Jack Mattinson & Chris St Jack, 15 Jun 2013

Start at the lowest point just right of the pine against the face. The rounded arete transitions to acute and then to obtuse. Stay off the faces.

You had to be quick to get the first ascent on the dark side. Start at the obvious crack below the large block on a ledge, over and around this through the crack above. A fillip awaits where you least expect it.
