Provides some of the best sandstone crack climbing in the Watagans across a wide range of grades and crack widths.
First visited in 1982 by Lou Zamberlan. The area was revisited in early 1989 by Darrin Gray, Jenny Anderson and James Cowmeadow, establishing the "Keyhole" access. They returned soon after, with Daniel Danuser, to establish the first climbs, "Blind Chook" and "Grunting Bitch". A surge of activity in 1989 and the early 1990's saw many of the major features climbed with the initial activists being joined by John Wilde, George Feig, Dan Rodgers, Brett Arnott and others. In 2013, Jason Piper and Tim Haasnoot climbed some of the remaining off-width including "Sadistical Tendencies" (24) and "The Shuffler" (23M1).
