Description 

The massive, open gully sandwiched between the Organ Pipes and the Bluffs is the Central Gully. Many climbs line the walls on both sides, and the floor of the gully contains numerous boulder problems. Generally the left wall is fairly straight forward in terms of access, whereas the right side is more convoluted and contains many tiers of rock and smaller sub-cliffs.


Getting There 

A major track branching off of the N-S trail along the Mount heads straight up into the gully and eventually breaches the cliffs at the back joining in with the summit road. A smaller, less traveled trail closely follows the gully on the left side, and is accessible from a few points on the main trail. The right side has more isolated cliffs and each are generally best approached from more direct, but less traveled, climbers' paths that split from the main trail. Approach times range from 10-30 minutes.

2nd pitch

Reaper 5.11b 6c 23 VIII- E3 5c PG13  Australia : Mount Arapiles : Central Gully Right
Reaper is the namesake climb of the Reaper Buttress, an obvious square shield of rock low on the Central Gully Right Side. The climb tackles the sickle-shaped crack that splits the wall. P1: Follow a steep crack in the middle of the buttress up past a fixed pin and mantle up and head right to an uncomfortable belay in a large pod. This pitch is a bit goey; hopefully the pin is good. 50', 5.11a.P2: Follow the steep, awkward leaning crack out across the face. 75', 5.11b.Burly!...[more]   Browse More Classics in International
