Description

A proud boulder with an array of differing climbing styles on great rock. Steep crimpy lines to compression sloper problems.

Access issues inherited from Mountain Lion

The Mountain Lion road sign is currently a burnt pole, so when approaching from the Henty Hwy side of the valley keep your eyes open for a small sandy car park on the right hand side of the road just after the Victoria Range Fire Trail gate (on left).

Approach

As per normal for Mountain Lion to Vanya Wall. The large proud boulder next to the Panguar Block.

Ethic inherited from Mountain Lion

This area has been quite badly burnt from the 2013 fires. Please keep to the foot pads as much as possible to stop further erosion.
