Third Cliff

(8 routes)

The third in the series. Perhaps the most prominent, and probably the nicest one to climb on, but unfortunately quite limited. There are good boulders for anchors at the top.

Walk time: 
10 min

If the farm track is dry you can drive along about 500 metres to the gate and park there. GThis crag is dorectly opposite over the ridge, with about 100 metres walk. Cut down through the scrub on the north side of the crag, zig-zgging around a bit to find the best route.

Around the buttress to the right is a prominent corner/gully with large boulders perched above on the right. Start up the right crack to avoid vege; then step left and pull through (crux) over the steep bit and into the corner with trees. Stay on the left and bridge over wide cracks to the exit.
