From Stella's Arete head straight down the hill past a lump of rock with no problems, and keep going to the scree. Once you've crested the wave of scree, try and find the Invisible boulder which is one of the first of the overhanging pillars, and is just a bit to the north. This area is a landmark. It's pretty much down the hill from the lookout.

Ethic inherited from Tasmania

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

  • Peregrine Falcons nest from July - December each year. It’s important that climbers don’t climb near active nests during this period. Known sites (non exhaustive) are: Sand River (Far East, The Panopticon), Bare Rock (R of the Boneyard, L of Bisso of Orange), Rocky Cape, Pubic Wall/Duck Reach, Hillwood, Gunners Quoin, Lowdina.

  • 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.

FA: James Trainer

Start low on steep pillar with a high heel cam, move up and out via burly climbing. It was originally climbed without the heel at V11.

FA: James Trainer

Start as for invisible passports and climb out on to sword and finish up planned aspiration.

Sit start the double crack feature of the hanging sword, climb out and up the sword.

Sit start with feet on ramp and left hand on low sidepulls, right hand on far right slopers. Climb straight out via compression following both opposing aretes. Finish by mantling over nose. Great steep problem!

Start as for Trinamic, match on large exfoliated ledge on right hand side and move directly up to slopes before reaching over to top out jugs.
