Approach


From Bucks Bar Dome (the main mass of rock as you come from the trail) go to climbers left to the Dinkum Wall/Gully. A class 2 downclimb will find you at the base of the crack. From the Bucks Bar Dome (BBD) stay on the top mass and walk to the edge of the cliff to set up top rope. I believe it will be the first set of bolts you encounter to the far right of the cliff. Getting to this set of bolts can be tricky, a hip belay from the nearby tree may not be a bad idea.

Route Description


A great 5.8 crack to practice bomber nut placements. Toproping options include any meathod of attacking the crack, lieback, direct ascent, or left hand in crack only.

Essential Gear


Back up your anchors as you feel is nessesary, the bolts that are there are typically in great condition. Rope, harness, belay device, and the typcical suspects for climbing. A small tarp is a good idea as it is quite dusty in the summer time. This is the area to be in in the summer time as it is nicely shaded from the afternoon sun.

This route is definitely 5.9 and not 5.8. It has been updated to this rating in the most recent guidebook too...
