Description

A great boulder featuring a huge roof and some proud aretes. Plenty of classic projects still to do!

Access issues inherited from Mt Lyell

This is an alpine area so follow all leave no trace principals, keep cleaning and clearing to a minimum and when possible toilet before or after climbing or follow the Tyndalls guideline. Please keep an extra eye out for King Billy pines and other native Tasmanian trees.

Approach

Continue up the ridge past a few faded orange tags. The cave is hard to see until you are right on it. You will go past the back side of Station boulder first.

Ethic inherited from Mt Lyell

Cleaning of loose or dangerous rock is essential here and some of that requires a bit of force and maneuvering but please avoid chipping or comforting of holds.

A fantastic problem. Start right back under the roof sitting on the waist high boulder. Follow the line of least resistance out the roof for 5m then punch through the crux moves on pockets turning the lip.

For A Few Dollars More can be done from a standing start halfway out the cave and is still an enjoyable climb at a bit easier grade. Start on two obvious opposite facing pebbles, swing your feet on and top out.

SDS The short hanging arete left of the cave.

Once up and stable on the arete step right onto the face for a slightly easier finish.

A nice bold problem in a great position on the high vertical face of the back side. Start with left on a jug pocket and right on a crimp, swing your feet on and launch to the loose looking flake/ledge(this has been pulled and stood on and seems OK ATM). Head straight up to top out.

SDS inside the cave at the end of the small left boulder. Come out through the pockets without using the other wall or jamming and continue into The Man With No Name. Could be potential to start further in the cave on top of the small boulder but it will be pretty hard.

FA: Moses, 2 Jan

On the boulder that the cave boulder sits on. Start crouched/hanging low on the arete traverse right and up to top out where the two boulders meet.

FA: Liam W, 7 Nov

On the boulder down hill of the cave, facing the mine. SDS straight up the left end.

FA: Moses, 23 Nov

Stand start just left of the small purple boulder and head up and left to finish at the same spot as Take It Too The Station.

FA: Moses, 23 Nov

Highball, straight up the middle of the face, bit of a dodgy landing with the purple boulder underneath. Only the top out cleaned so far.

Start in the same spot as Kids These Days Don't Like Westerns and head for the highest point on the boulder. Thin tricky looking section about half way.

Stand start under the small overhang on right end, up past the overlap with some fun moves.
