Approach

One option: Walk up the lookout track from the top of the parking area. Take the left track branch towards the south-western comms hut. Turn off the track to the N/NW before you get to the hut and where some scree comes close to the track (small cairn). Continue downhill in this direction for 10 - 15 mins (some cairns) between breaks in the the rocky drops. Last small gully brings you to the top of the main crag.

The Great Unknown and Couple Lost Boys are accessed by scrambling around the cliff to the right and up gully 15meters.
