Description

A rarely climbed area near the main sports area of Mt Randall. A bit of a hike but well worth it for the wild exposed feeling of climbing up here. Some seriously wicked lines.

Approach

Follow the path from near the Up The Hill area past the granite slab and to the Mt Randall summit. 5-10 min walk.

History

Apparently there were 30-40 routes established back in the day. Does anybody remember them?

Grade Route

Sit start matched on right facing sidepull/undercling. Make your way up the steep face on the reinforced crimps to a ballsy topout. Powerful

FA: Andy Lampard, 2004

Looks like a hard crimp line through the roof to the left of the Hero Line. Top Looks absolutely blank and nails hard. Crimps again reinforced by glue. Has this one been sent?

Friction slab to ledge, then small fist/hand crack section. Falling on the fist crack probably wouldnt bode well.

SDS?

Little bit hidden, To the left of the hand crack. Looks kinda cool

Has it been climbed? could be more routes up through. Exposure on this line is spectacular.

Looks hard.

Sit start all the way left, work way all the way along the edge with a heel hook, bit contrived but avoiding mantling up onto slab creates cool sequence. Still fairly easy.
