Caboose Wall

(8 routes)

A strongly featured wall between the two buttresses, with routes about 28 metres long. Most finish at the large ledge running across just below the top of the cliff, which has been fitted with anchor bolts on the overhanging wall above. Anchor using the bolts nearest to the route. The descent route is on the right (north) side of the ledge where there is a pair of ring hangers. A 15 metre abseil gets you to a spacious ledge halfway down the cliff, from where another pair of ring anchors gives access to the ground.

Technical start with a layback move to the ledge, then step right and pull through the overhang moving left. Continue up to the corner, with tricky moves in the smooth black section near the top. Step right on to the main ledge and anchor at two separated bolts. Nine bolts.
