Credited as 'Crab' in Perth Rock (1996), though the description and other guidebooks for 'Crab' seem to point to the slab to the right of Hangten rather than this.

Visioned by Gerard Chipper in the 90’s? Equipped by Jarrod May in 2003. FA Jarrod May 2003. Once described as ‘looking like a pile of horse cum, but actually climbs really nice’

Start at base tot he left and use good holds to first bolt, then ape your way to the break for a rest. Traverse with poor feet to crux then powerful moves to the top.

Cardio Funk into Sweet Pea Link Up

Start up SOD to the obvious break at mid-height. Instead of heading left of the arete as for SOD, break right (and cross the line of Black Ambiance) and head up the obvious leaning corner feature using both the face and the arete of the corner to an exciting finish.

Lower-offs at the top can also be used for neighbouring Animalistic Rage, which has not had lower-offs to date.

Link Black Ambience into Rogue State (Perhaps a more obvious start to Rogue State)

FFA: Anthony Bell, 1998

This is an absolute Perth classic for the grade. May be harder than 24 since the bottom section has fallen off. Awesome moves make this an enjoyable climb.

Direct as crab, an top above crab. Small gear needed.

FA: David Ladkin & Raymond Hill, 23 Mar

Climb from the bottom right-hand corner of the short steep wall to the top left avoiding the arete on the right.
