This upper Landsborough climb was accessed via Barron Saddle, Scissors Peak, and Hardies Gut. On the east face of Mt Townsend begin up shallow buttress directly beneath summit. Wend up until a compact wall bars progress, and swing around right into big corner. Follow corner until it steepens to continuous overhang. Move left onto buttress and cross left to another corner which leads to the top of wall. Follow sloping terrace to gain crest of right hand arĂȘte, and climb steep arĂȘte to summit. Excellent rock, route finding is simplified by following large features. Overhangs can be turned. This is steep terrain, and any mixups could cause hardship. Grade14-17, 600m.
