The bulging overhanding wall immediately left of The Real Thing. An eliminate line with no recourse to reachable easier holds. Direct up.

Possibly done before. There is some mention of climbing previously recorded in this area with poor descriptions in the Eastern District guidebook from the VCC. Maybe this is one of them. Around the left side of Elephant Rock to the left of the usual way up for walkers the first steep wall you come to has a rockpool in front of it's base and faces the small seperate sea stack. The Real Thing takes the left hand side of this wall via a nice buggy side pull at half height and the small overhang on the left at the top. Lead by Karl and Kai. See photo.

Further left around from The Real Thing and up a level is another small steep wall facing out to sea. Kai's Line takes the centre of this wall via flake cracks and small horizontal ledges .

4m left of the start of GITM pull onto the ledge above head height and proceed directly up the narrow buttress between the 2 shallow chimneys without deviation or recourse to the chimneys.

A couple of meters left of GITM Apeman tackles the blocky overhang via a side pull lake to the left.

FA: Andrew Johnson & Karl Bromelow, 7 Mar

Start at the bottom of GITM and move diagonally up and left across the wall via flakes and side pulls to join the right leading thin crack which is followed back to the arete and top.

Follows the flake crack up the front of Kong Buttress from the right end of the watery low platform.

On Kong Buttress. The route starts at the extreme left edge of the basalt platform on the ocean side of elephant rock just beyond where the swell slams into a square corner creating an impressive backdrop in all but the smallest seas. About 1.5m right of the obvious deep crackline that runs bottom to top of the buttress from the lower very shallow rock pool. The line follows a series of bulges ledges and cracks before overcoming the slightly overhanging top of an obvious pinnacle. See photos.

Left of Kong by 15m, across the stepped slabby wall is another pinnacle. Dandelion tackles the crack and corners up the face via some wide ledges.
