Starts just before the hyper bowl just after the large boulder – look for a stainless rivet at head height. Take 1 bracket.

  1. 15m (17) Up past rivet into small corner and gear. Move left along ledge to gain slick diagonal crack. Follow this to belay ledge.

  2. 20m (19) Follow the loose but easy buttress on the left side of the ledge to gain steep face. Climb through the sustained face passing 3 FHs and up to chains on ledge. Mark Gommers, Nathan Bolton, Adam Hardaker 1.7.03

  3. 45m (19) From the chains traverse right and up to FH. Technical moves past this (crux) to ledge with weakness on left side. Follow this tending left to sloping black ledge. Continue up cracks to the right of this ledge until you reach a large corner/chimney. Now up this to large ledge and tree belay. Escape via hidden chains below large tree at southern end of ledge. 2 x 35m raps to the ground. Rick Wittkopp, Mark Gommers 2.7.03

Ethic: inherited from Townsville

Marking the rock at the start of the climbs used to be the norm, this is now frowned apon
