Description

This wall contains 8 well protected sport routes as well as one trad line ranging in grade from 5.6 to 5.9 on good quality slab granite. The routes range in length from 25m to 38m so you will need to trail a rope or do some shenanigans to desend the longer routes. All routes end on double bolted rap/belay stations and a dozen draws should cover any of the sport routes on this wall.

Getting There

From the slab at the top of the 4WD road, descend the approach trail through the gully and stay to the right. The Hippo Wall will be the lower sport slab on your right hand side. Take a right off the main descent trail to access a small trail that runs the base of the wall.
