Summary

Ariel Buttress holds some good moderate routes, just a short walk from the car. shade until mid to late morning.

Approach

As for 'The Hump'. where you leave the main walking track for the hump, you will see Ariel buttress up a little.

The hump track turns off the tourist track at a L hand bend in the track, there is a large arrow painted on a rock pointing L, and a small orange arrow on the ground. this is where the hump track leaves the tourist track.

follow this for 10m, then head up L to Ariel Buttress.

Ethic inherited from Mount Buffalo

Trad climbing rules here! Bolts are a last resort! Most of the major aid lines can be done clean using modern gear unless noted. Freeing of aid sections should probably attempted as trad before resorting to fixed artificial protection.

Start up the chimney then hand traverse across, continue diagonally up the crack trending right.

easy hand crack leads to thought-provoking climbing and a carrot bolt to keep it tame. trad belay (medium cams)

great climbing up the middle of the wall, trad gear for belay

The route immediately R of Ariel, at the top of the ramp (possible green cam in funky pocket) up blunt arete past 2 carrot bolts, medium cams for belay.

starts down by CS (approximately 20m higher than the start of CS, but a very easy scramble).

some great slabbing at the grade. Follow the blunt arete passing 4 carrots and a medium cam.

these 2 routes are a short scrub bash down from CS. they look like they would climb well, however, need a good old fashioned clean
