Grade Route

Start 2m left of Slash and Burn. First clip is rather high. Delicately climb face past two more bolts, with a big move past blank section.

The sport route with 5 fixed hangers. Up overhanging start, layback over bulge to clip third bolt (crux). Directly up face on small holds, staying out of Gabbro Grove, past two more bolts to top. Two ring bolts at the anchor.

FA: Al Rokich & Dave Moyses, 1989

The obvious V-section crack 2m right of Slash and Burn.

FA: 'Mac' McArthur

Climb jugs on arete to gain first bolt and struggle up desperate hold to reach second bolt. Crux is moving from the 4th to thr 5th bolt. Some brave people skip the 5th bolt as it can be difficult to clip. Re-bolted in '92 so the name no longer applies, really.

FA: Gary Matier, 1989

Start 2m right of Bodgy Dolts. Up overhanging groove to stand on large ledge to the right. Up next bulge and climb wall until it steepens, then traverse right into a shallow groove and crack, the mid point of Up for Grabs, to finish.

FA: 'Mac' McArthur

As for Celestial Way but instead of traversing right go straight up, clipping the two fixed hangers along the way. Above the bulge take the thin crack to niche and fixed hanger, then move to the next large niche and another fixed hanger. Continue up crack to scoop then mantle to finish. Some wall wires or even microcams are handy.

FA: Ronald & Ron Master

Strenuous climbing 2m right of Celestial Way. From the ledge climb overhanging arete past two fixed hangers to join Mainliner at piton.

FA: Shane Richardson, 1990
