BETA PHOTO: Babadook's east-facing prow.
Babadook's main draw is its east-facing prow. There may be potential along its west and north face as well though. The rock quality is very good, and the landings are a mixed bag.
It is located in the Southie Area. From the parking area, head downhill, cross East Creek, head up toward the Mecca Boulder on the dirt track, continue past the boulder about 50 yards, and then head uphill toward the cliff. Below the cliff, there is a foot path, head in a southwesterly direction and the boulder will be on the left. It is best to just look at the page map, it's tough to explain, this one is pretty far out there. It lies about 50 yards northeast of Mistress.
