Right off the track to the top of the Bluff is a bolted line. Starts in a short corner.

The corner crack system just left of Immaculate Conception. The gear is quite thin in the middle (small gear useful) and the steep hand-jamming finish is demanding.

The impressive looking steep wall with good features. Keep chugging up the headwall following the line of bolts to finish over the lip.

Altar of Madness direct. The routs share the first two and last two bolts, but in between this route heads straight up through the middle of the wall.

Nice, technical face climbing. Follow the line of ring bolts up and right. At the ledge system, traverse back left and then head up via some technical moves.

Another Altar variant, this time head straight up the impressive sheer wall after the first four bolts instead of traversing left at the ledge. While it's usual to finish at the Altar belay, there is an extra for experts extension that goes to the top of the cliff.

This climb is better if climbed in one pitch but there are anchors halfway up if you choose to climb only the first bolted pitch.
