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.

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.

Sit start on the lowest end of the boulder, a hard start and then some nice moves.

A great problem with nice moves on good holds with a bold finish. Standing start matched on the obvious pebble and a high foot. Straight up past a nice side pull slot aiming for the two pebbles sticking out right at the top. There is a large hollow sounding piece right on top but the climbing is finished before you get to it and it seems pretty well stuck in place.

Start as for Reverse Mortgage but head right to finish on the bulgy arete, could be a scary finish above the slope.

Another great problem with some of the best holds yet found in the conglomerate. SDS with right on the nice jug below the obvious sloper and left on a pebble pinch, past the amazing crimp with some side pull's before a dynamic move to the finishing jug at the highest point.

FA: Moses, 17 Dec

SDS low and right of the arete, move past the great half moon hold to just below the arete and head to the highest point. An easier option can be had by starting to the left matched on the jug.

As per Styx And Stones but once on the arete rock over and go up the easy back side.
