Description 

On the uphill east side of the wombat. Look for the obvious weakness to gain the summit. Follow a short 15ft wide crack then follow the slab up and right to the ridge take this to the summit.


Note: In the watts guide he says that its a simple 4th class scramble up the summit ride. I found it to be a bit more invovled than most 4th class scrambles.


Location 

On the north eastern uphill side of the wombat.

Protection 

Its possible to bring a tiny rack to 3" but there are no anchors in place on the summit, though you could probably sling a block.

I left Burma Rd. at the switchback, followed the base of the Marsupials, then went behind the Wombat. The short crack problem does have a few (low)5th class moves, but is v. short, with a smooth/safe landing. After gaining the slab, it is a simple scramble, little exposure. View of main area from the summit is unbelievable...it's worth the trip!
