Great delicate slab/face climbing. 2nd bolt a bit spaced for my liking with the ledge below. The downclimb scramble in the body crack was the most physical bit!

Fun route, tricky in between the first and second bolt. Nervous watching the leader between these bolts as there is a possibility for a ground fall.

A bit of chimneying and a hand traverse. Trad anchor in moss. Not worth the walk down, though - rap rings, anyone?

nice moves, poor rock, fair to good pro, lower offs would make this climb excellent, as getting back down takes about 30mins of bush bashig through overgrown tracks, not that enjoyable.

i like buffalo slabs...so far. generally the rock in the hump area seems to be pebbly and crumbly but this boulder was pretty bomber. i recommend this climb to anyone...good rock and well bolted. some nice weathered depressions make good stances.

this line follows a bit of a corner then finishes up with some slabbing on the arete. the climbing only really starts halfway up and then it's an interesting balancing act to move onto the arete followed by some more serious balancing to make one more move to some stances that are more reassuring. the rock quality makes this climb worth while i think.
