Summary

Once again a pretty setting but nothing really worthwhile in the way of existing routes. On the Lake Albina side there is a broken buttress about 100m high with a couple of seams running up it. These were climbed by Peter Hopkins in 1987 at grade

20.

  1. Diagonally right into a corner, up to overhang then up and around nose to belay in corner.

  2. Right onto slab then follow a crack left to a grassy niche. Follow cracks and ramps to the top.
