Description

This boulder is a 3.5-4m tall crimpy overhang. Strenuous sits that lead into powerful, long, and dead-point throws make up the bulk of this boulder. Not to mention that a bushy victory mantle lies in wait.

Please consider not putting any routes up on the slabby right hand side of this boulder as this may lead to the ferns underneath being killed.

Access issues inherited from Glasshouse Mountains

Most 'Glasshouse Mountains' climbing is within the Glass House Mountains National Park. Please respect the environment and other people's enjoyment of it. Access to climbing here is a privilege, not a right.

The 2019 Ngungun track expansion & fortification work is now complete, and the mountain is once again fully open.

Approach

Follow the East Beerwah Track until you reach the first creek crossing after the Spikey Green Jelly Slope. About 5 metres after the river crossing there should be a small track that goes to your right up the hill. Follow this until it meets the creekbed and the Like Water Off A Turtles Back Boulder should be visible up the creek.

Ethic inherited from Glasshouse Mountains

Modern climbers establishing new routes have taken great pains to ensure any new routes do not interfere with the historic routes established many decades ago.

Retro-bolting of existing routes is unacceptable!

New routes shall make use of traditional protection where available.

Grade Route

Sit-start left of shield and straight up into the mantle.

Sit-start with low L hand crimp rail and upper R hand crimp. Blast up and left to a jug and mantle straight into a bush.

FA: Liam Sutcliffe, 6 Dec 2020

Sit bunched on stacked crimps: good upper L crimp (R start hold of Into The Bush) and low R crimp. Huge move up and right to the best hold you can reach. This line doesn't veer left like Into The Bush.

Contrived test of dyno strength!

FA: Liam Sutcliffe, 6 Dec 2020

Sit-start middle of the face and right of Flashlight Assist. Use spread crimps to get to an obvious side-pull. Big moves up and right to a victory jug and mantle. Will be a hard send but high quality problem!
