Ethic inherited from Mount Buffalo

Climbing here varies from trad climbing, mainly up obvious lines and features, to sport climbing up slabs and sections of rock impossible to protect with natural gear. Of course, there are lots of climbs protected with a mixture of trad gear augmented with occasional bolt runners. Given that the trad ethic is still strong here, and the continuing need to minimize our environmental climbing 'footprint', please avoid unilateral decisions to retro-bolt and be restrained in using fixed protection when establishing new routes.

Grade Route

Cleaned and bolted by Singer Smith and Geoff Gledhill January 2011. Most of the upper crack and face scoop has been freed between 22 and 24, but the start is &%^*#%^ hard (at least 30?), campusing on fingerlocks for 8-10 meters or toe-hooking the aretes at a horribly overhung angle. Aid climbers would have a lot of fun on a route this steep.

Start: Located on the pillar about 50 meters uphill from the second-to-last ski lift pole and can be approached from the ski run or by walking past the Hump and crossing the gully.

This area is for adventure climbing and for those that love the higher mountain landscapes and rock formations that are unique to the area. Mt Buffalo offers both single and multi-pitch climbs and mainly uses trad gear for protection but there is the odd sport climb around for those that only want to clip bolts.
