A gymnastic ceiling crack that requires lots of technique, up corner right of Cliff Hanger, or pitch one of No Soft Options then out the the obvious roof crack. Start right of Cliff Hanger, then up corner.
FA: Mark Moorhead Brian Fish, 1981
|23||★ Race Apart
A huge rising traverse, start below left end of No Soft Options' crack.
FA: Chris Shepherd Kim Carrigan, 1982
|20||★ No Soft Options
The left hand of two diagonal cracks. Two hard pitches, gear to #4 cam.
FA: Tim Beaman Roland Pauligk, 1977
Start as for No Soft Options, but take the right hand of the two diagonal cracks, hard laybacking past cave to ledge, then right and up through easy roof.
FA: Rod Young Kim Carrigan Mark Moorhead, 1979
Extremely slick. Start as for Gillette behind huge conifer. Up flake to ledge on left then across to bolt (a high runner in tree helps). Pedaling hard, slip left and up to next bolt. Flake, then corner to roof. Up groove through roof just left of Touchdown.
FA: Kim Carrigan & Chris Shepherd, 1982
For a close shave! Start right of Touchdown at thin flake behind huge conifer. From top of flake, clip piton with wire(!). Levitate to stance at 15 metres. Either belay here or continue on jugs.
FA: Mark Moorhead & Kim Carrigan, 1981
Starts right of Gillette, midway between the two giant callitris trees. Climb the short crack and continue up the creamy corner to the roof. Left on the hanging slab, pull over the roof (BR) and up the corner/groove to the top. Rap rings.

|19||★ Flying Ants
Up between Ants Pants and Noddys Route, just left of the callitris. Bolt at lip of first bulge, step left around roof above the prominent diagonal and up wall past a few more bolts. Take some trad gear as well. Rap rings.
FA: Geoff Little & entourage
|20||★ Noddys Route
Start at the right-hand callitris tree. Straight up past two BRs to the overlap. Step left, then veer back right above the overlap to a nice seam which leads to the top. Rap rings.

|★ Unknown Project
Lime green FH 3m L of SS, with a faded tag on it. 24/5 for the start. Presumably it then joins into the big undercling flake up and leftish.
|21 R||★ Shoe Shuffle
Bold climbing up blankest section of black face right of Gillette. Start below small pedestal 5 metres left of Old Mates. The start now has a FH. Scarily up and left to pedestal then over smooth bulge and onwards.
FA: Mark Moorhead & Rod Young, 1979
|16||★ Old Mates
The main left-facing corner at the right side of blank face, with a tricky start then lovely all the way. Rap rings at top.
FA: Chris Baxter & Mike Stone, 1982
|17||★ Sugar Plum
Easier and airier than it looks. Start up Old Mates for 5m to the base of the main corner. Move R onto orange nose and rock onto blank slab. Continue diagonally R over orange bulges (lots of pro, it’s above you), crossing Gene Vicious, to R end of big roof. Finish direct up clean cut grey dihedral. Wander 5m L to rap rings, or top out.
FA: Emily Monks & Will Monks, 11 Apr 2022
|22 R||Gene Vicious
Start is poorly protected. Start 3 metres right of Old Mates and go up diagonally left and over bulges, finishing through middle of final roofs.
FA: Louise Shepherd & Mike Law, 1983
At the right-hand end of Echidna Wall is a pretty orange slab with a black stripe up the middle. Puggles takes this line, starting straight up the fingery wall and bulge below the black stripe.
Note: an earlier route up the middle of Echidna Wall was called Puggles, but it’s been consumed by other climbs. So by popular demand we moved the name Puggles up the hill to a new patch of rock.
