Description

Nice 100m climbing with easy access and escape. All routes cross Prick'll Traverse, which provides retreat at half height. Cleaner climbing is found above the traverse.

Access issues inherited from Bluff Knoll

The site is part of the Stirling Range National Park, managed by the Department of Parks and Wildlife. An entrance fee to the site applies.

Approach

Access track can be found turning off left from the old tourist trrack just after the first steep section of the path (cairn) and descends slightly to the the base of the rock.

Historically, the most elusive climb in the Stirlings. Pleasant and airy if "The Nose" is climbed direct. Possibly the finest pitch on Bluff Knoll! Grade 10 if nose is avoided

An obvious gully, crack and chimney system at the left corner of the North West bay starting from Prickle Traverse beneath a large overhanging feature. Marked with "CS" painted on the rock at the base. An excellent climb in a superb position, with a number of obvious places to protect a belay. This route can be started after finishing pitch 4 of Right Anti-climax.

FA: M. Adams & C. Giraradine, 1967
