Pompeii

(21 routes)

Approximately 80 metres north of the Hidden Wall area. Also can walk to the north end of the beach and pick up the track heading into the bush beside North Buttress. Make your way along the track until a clear area under the big macrocarpas provides access to the rock. Most of the routes are short and a single rope will get you down to the ground even on the longer routes. Helmets are essential in this area as small pebbles sometimes release from up high in windy conditions.

Small to medium cams protect the first half of the climb to the ledge. Pick a line just left of the small roof, passing a bolt on the ledge. Extend with a sling to limit rope drag then up the headwall on excellent holds.
