Description

This is the first formation on the left as you descend the gully. There are a number of good routes here with the red wall routes generally being harder and more intimidating. The first pitches of many of the red wall routes are three or four stars and can be climbed then lowered off with a 70M rope.

Getting There

Drop down the gully as described in the Reef of Rocks "Getting There" section.
