Start:Flake pillar about 7m left of The Last Act, as for The Edge of Reality.
Description:A good wall approach to the fantastic Dinosaur Gully DF. However the start is a bit gnarly, the hanging belay is a nuisance, the flake on the second pitch seems dangerous and ... It's good but not as good as might be hoped. Also, the start is wet for a long time as it's subject to seepage from the soak at the top of pitch one of Edge of Reality. Take some big gear and lots of slings.
Pitch 1:20m 15 (consensus from 0 ascents; FA grade: 15)
Up flake pillar, taking care with rock, then tend left up easy orange wall to semi-hanging belay at major break. Belay when you first reach the break as it makes changing over much easier.
Pitch 2:25m 17 (consensus from 0 ascents; FA grade: 17)
Swing up left over pocketed bulge. Once over this move right, up small corner to hollow flake (take care), left along flake then up left to belay below overhang.
Pitch 3:45m 17 (consensus from 0 ascents; FA grade: 17)
Bridge around overhang and continue up to small grassy ledge (belay here if you did a shorter second pitch). Up short corner to roof and crawl through the slot on the right. Climb the crack above in an outrageous position past a series of bulges to a terrace.
