Description 

Located between Central Buttress and The Columns, Flange Buttress offers a great selection of classic trad and sport routes, along with a northeasterly aspect which makes climbing a real option on sunny winter mornings. Though It does lose the sun at around 1:00 p.m. midwinter and then gets cold very quickly!

Getting There 

Approach starts at Climbers Carpark on Pinnacle Rd, which is 6.9KM past the turnoff from Huon Road onto Pillinger Drive (Pillinger turns into Pinnacle at a left fork in the road). From this carpark, follow a path up the scree until you reach the Organ Pipes Track, which traverses below the base of the cliffs. Take Organ Pipes track to the left for a few minutes and you'll see another track (your next right-hand turn) heading uphill to the base of the cliff. Signposts mark all the climber's approach tracks which leave the Organ Pipes track.

Start 7m R of Bert's Fear at a shallow left facing corner.1. 30m 20 Lovely climbing up the corner past a thin section to a small ledge. Arrange pro, then move up from the right side of the ledge (crux) passing a small black slab (you can place a good cam here) to belay on the next big ledge. It is also possible to climb straight up the thin seams above the left side of the ledge. Either way, it is difficult to protect the crux moves above the ledge.2. 20m 16 Up the short corn...[more]   Browse More Classics in International
