Description

A large east-facing formation back behind the Freak Brothers Dome. Home to a small handful of routes, most notably the diverse Early Bird, as well as a couple of face climbs.

There’s usually a rap station at the top of Early Bird consisting of a few slings with knot chocks (requires 2 ropes). If that’s not your cup of tea there’s a fairly easy, albeit a bit long, downclimb off the back of the formation - scramble up to the summit and descend in a gulley.

Getting There

If approaching from the entrance to Wonderlands, walk past the Freak Bros Dome, then cut right up a wide valley. A trail will eventually cut right and a scramble will get you up to the main formation. Several poor quality trails precede the proper trail, if you have to do a bunch of bush wacking you’ve chosen one of these. If you run into a large, well, obelisk, in the middle of the pathway that’s The Red Obelisk and you’ve gone too far.
