From the Woolshed Creek Hut, follow the Mt Somers / Rhyolite Ridge Track South for approximately 20 minutes until it crosses what is locally known as Tri Falls Creek. From here follow a sign posted track upstream to a "waterfall" which drops in from one side of the amphitheatre. The top of the amphitheatre can be accessed by continuing on the Mt Somers / Rhyolite Ridge Track gaining ~100m in elevation before scrub bashing to Tri Falls Creek above the water fall.

To the left of the waterfall base, scramble / climb up for 8m before topping out onto a sloping ledge system. Walk to back of this being carefull to keep your shoes dry to find a double bolt anchor.

 Climb the wall to the left of the waterfall staying "just" out of the spray on clean and dry rock. An absorbing pitch with the crux between the first and second bolts. Double bolt anchor.
