Upper Slabs on Right Side

(6 routes)

100 metres upriver from Red Rock Buttress, a clean upper wall has a prominent fin below it and is bounded on the right side by a permanent stream and gorge. The start of the two scramble pitches is 25 minutes across and upriver of the main camping area at the base of the Central Buttress.

Wonderful steep climbing up the open groove with seams yielding beautiful wire placements to the overlap at 28m. Then bolts protect the crux, direct grade 23 but not yet led.

Start from the grassy knoll on the true right of the permanent stream where it emerges from the gorge. Easy but poorly protected climbing on good rock to the double rig bolts 5m left of the gully and a rope stretching 50m up. Head for the corner formed by Sunshine Coast wall and the rock fin. Round the corner, steeper climbing up the wide crack. Has a fixed abseil line from top.
