This route follows a narrow gully up a couple steep pillars for 30m to easy bumps and short steep faces for another 30m. A wide ledge and spectacular views of the valley plus the intimate and unique feel of climbing the slender formation make this route well worth it.


Less than Zero Gully is located just climber's right of Comet's Tail in the narrow gully that is not perceptible from the road. To find Comet's Tail look for an old road that leads to a quarry just after you pass Compulsion.


Screws to lead and belay and consider using a v-thread to get down as not many trees at the top inspire confidence for a rappel. Less than Zero shares a similar top out to Comet's Tail as both seem to be fed by the same seepage/stream so there are options for descending.
