FA: Adrian, 2010

Has lost a jug.

A little committing at top for some.

Up lay away to juggy break, traverse with bad feet. Out right side under roof to easy top out.

Up white rock on small under cling side pull to jug rail in break, then straight up through roof on crimp to dead point jug at lip.

Great! Jugs up steep high arete! Big move to hidden hold at top.

FA: Alexander Bunyip, 1997

Start with a high step. exciting finish.

Awesome at the grade! Up past two pockets.

Good, head towards horn jug at top.

Long first move.

Razor sharp hold up.

Up slopers on arete, then traverse left to top out on jug.

FA: Alexander Bunyip, 1999

From start of crack, go direct straight up the face on delightful slopey crimps. Pad up, or do not fall off the top!

FA: Jul 2019

Bomber hand-crack, much easier than it looks.

Ground drops away, add a pad and good spotting!

Sit low and use sloper side pull to jug slab.

FA: Alexander Bunyip, 1998

Short but good.

Short leaning jugs on east side of block.

Bad wet landing.

Good! Crowd pleaser. Maybe V2 if you head straight up at top out instead of bailing left.

Sit start on slopey shelf, then awkward move up arete and to jug.
