    In an area .5km north-west of Torbay Head, in West Cape Howe National Park, I put up two trad lines and explored the obvious variations on a granite headwall. The headwall is located downhill from a 4WD parking area. The routes take the left-hand and right-hand sides to the layback/under-cling flake shaped like a upside down sickle, with a yellow granite intrusion on the southern side.

    Left-hand side of the sickle is around the grade 18 and the right-hand side is slightly harder at around grade 19. The crux is exiting the sickle and surmounting the top section of the headwall.

    Left-side:

    Right-side: with variations
    The cows udder (gr 19). Rob Kettels, Aparna Ramesh and Larissa Losch
