A good selection of proud steep lines up to 15m high. The best cliff in the gorge to facilitate beginner abseiling.

Access issues inherited from Tasmania

Many locals continue to use community run website for crag/route updates and noting any access issues. The associated app can be downloaded and used offline!

Gerry Narkowicz also produces hardcopy guides to numerous venues across the state via the 'Climb Tasmania' website


From Trackside Buttress (located on the zig-zag track), jump the fence via the stile and head directly downhill to the top of the cliff. Fixed hangers are located here to facilitate abseil or top roping (bring a length of static rope). It is possible to scramble easily to the base of the climbs via either end of the buttress.

Descent notes

Rap from bolts or descend to the base of climbs via either end of the buttress.

Ethic inherited from Tasmania

  • The operation and use of drones by park visitors on reserved land including national parks is not permitted​.

  • Please note that Tasmania has notoriously patchy phone reception for particular service providers. Telstra is the most reliable. An emergency Personal Locator Beacon or similar is recommended kit when climbing in remote locations.

There are two obvious lines up the front of the main buttress. This is the one on the right. Classy, technical climbing to the large ledge on the right, then step back into the line and finish up the stylish finger crack. The crux is protected by a very small wire, which will be very difficult for the vertically challenged to place. Abseil inspection is recommended if you value the integrity of your ankle bones.

Start up Offal then at ledge go out the diagonal crack

Three bolts on right, but climbing on both sides of the arete. Start on right behind a block. Direct start is possible starting left of block (place gear). Try not to fall off and shred your rope.

FA: Michael Fox

Start from the ledge of Blue No More, across Pelvic Thrust and Free Passage, then up Offal Diagonal.
