This boulder has a number of harder problems (details unknown) and a couple of easier lines. Identifiable by an open crack on the SE face. Decend easily on the NE.

Access issues inherited from Halls Gap Area

A low profile always helps to avoid too much attention from tourists and park rangers.

Traverse climb beginning at leftmost arete. Using rails and flakes along the low section of the face finishing with a match in the large pocket.

FA: Sam Jacobs, 16 Jan 2020

Easy and obvious crack which curves to the left, to committing top out. Can also be done as a sit start.

Arete left of 'Easy Crack'. Sit start at rail on right of arete, head left to large jug, then up on right-hand side of arete to committing top out (as for 'Easy Crack'). Grade uncertain.

Sit start, left hand split pocket and right side pull. Pull up to sloper, few technical moves. Trend left for nice finish. Stand start goes at V2.
