Description

The crag of Frews Flutes and Robin's Buttress provides the most consistently hard cliff on the mountain and the most regular columnar cliff in the state (Australia?). Varying in height from 30 to 180m it is close to a 1km long. The distinct face on the left is named Robin's Buttress after English climber Robin Thomson who, fresh from Yosemite, pioneered many of the exhausting jam cracks in 1978.
The rock is wholly sympathetic in frictional texture but unrelentingly steep. Note that a high degree of fitness is required, even on the easiest routes.

Getting There

The climbs on Robin's Buttress are approached by traversing right across the scree from Carr Villa. Stay up high to avoid the bands of scrub and look for cairns. It is approximately twenty minutes walk from Carr Villa to the buttress. On reaching the "saddle" under the big cliff, look up and you'll hopefully see the penis of rock at the base of the cliff proper. This is where the abseil comes down, and where Rajah and the like start.
