This formation is home to a number of fun but not Classic routes! Brusier being the most climbed on the formation. Climbs are about 50' tall so a 50m rope will be just fine.

Walk off is on the right side of the formation. Due to increasing rains a bolted route sprouted up to the left of Biscuit Eater. No FA info available on this route though!

Getting There 

This formation is 150 yards of the last routes in the Steve canyon area. Can park off the main road and walkaround to the formation. A little boulder hopping will get you to the routes.

Climbing Season

For the The Outback area.
