  <header autonumber="true" camping="" walk="20 min" sun="Not much sun" rock="Dolerite walls and cracks up to 80m" name="Bulging Buttress" intro="Bulging Buttress spans the wide-ranging area between Avalanche Couloir and Teardrop Gully. The buttress is divided into left hand and right hand sections by a centrally located prow. At the left hand end close to Avalanche Couloir is SSSSI Wall, a hanging wall of quality looking lines that rises to join the main buttress to its right. Right of here on the left side of the prow is a steep, clean wall (Black Magic area) on which several fine sport and trad routes reside. The prow has a pronounced step 25m off the ground that traverses a short way left below this clean wall. On the right side of the prow the routes are initially shorter and finish at the step (Jelly Wall). Further right the routes in the Breaker Spur area become longer before the cliff eventually merges into the natural continuation of Teardrop Gully. The quality of the rock right of the prow is significantly poorer than that to the left. " history="" acknowledgement="" access="Bulging Buttress is accessed from the climbers&apos; carpark. Walk left along the Organ Pipes Track for approximately 400m arriving at the signposted Bulging Buttress/University Buttress track junction that heads right up a boulder field (GPS MTW070). Follow this climbers&apos; track to where it first meets the base of the cliff just right of the prow. This is Jelly Wall.&lt;br/&gt;&lt;br/&gt;Following the track further left from Jelly wall takes you around the prow to access routes on SSSSI Wall and the Black Magic area&lt;br/&gt;&lt;br/&gt;To access SSSSI Wall continue along this track, traversing left across and up to enter Avalanche Couloir.  A scramble back right from the couloir accesses the base of SSSSI wall. &lt;br/&gt;&lt;br/&gt;Routes in the Black Magic area are found immediately around and uphill left of the prow.&lt;br/&gt;&lt;br/&gt;For routes right of the prow, those on Jelly Wall can be accessed from where climbers’ track first meets the cliff.&lt;br/&gt;&lt;br/&gt;To access routes in the Breaker Spur area follow the base of the cliff 25m further right from Jelly Wall.&lt;br/&gt;&lt;br/&gt;To descend climbs on this buttress, there are rap anchors on SSSSI (30m), Mildly Amused (35m), Beaten and Abused (35m), Heat Pump (50m), Warm Glow (50m), Black Magic (47m and 35m: or 1x 60m to the base of the scrambling route), Dal Nulla (30m), Jelly Roll (35m), Smoke and Mirrors (32m), and Breaker Spur area (50m and 37m)." id="1"/>

Despite previous morbid descriptions of initial traverse, this excellent climb can be well protected with use of double ropes - placing a good cam above the easy traverse (previously described as unprotectable), then other small gear at the end of traverse. &lt;br/&gt;An alternative start is by climbing pitch 1 of heat pump and deviating left just before the anchors (a 45m pitch). Abseil from heat pump top anchors.</climb>

From the belay, trend left with a thoughtful move up into a small niche to gain the base of a wide crack equipped with finger jams. Up and step right onto the wall then back left into the crack to reach the next ledge. Continue up the hand-crack to a pea-pod. Step R at this point and around the corner to the prow and Black Magic rap station - 47m to top of the step, with a second rap (35m) from there to the ground.

As for Breaker Spur. &lt;br/&gt;2. 12m. Follow the line just left of the arête, swing left and up a short nose to gain a terrace (as for Breaker Spur). &lt;br/&gt;3. 30m. Traverse left to the foot of the chimney, which is followed to a broad ledge. &lt;br/&gt;4a. 30m. Original route: traverse left along the ledge and continue heading up, keeping towards the left skyline. Move right and scramble to the top.&lt;br/&gt;4b. 30m. Direct finish: follow the line directly above the chimney past a chockstone. Abseil via the Black Magic rap station (1 x 47m; 1x 35m).</climb>

Start at the crack at the very foot of the spur.&lt;br/&gt;1. 32m 14. Climb the line up the rib keeping mainly to the left of the arête. After reaching the first platform at 25m, traverse right across the blank wall and climb up to a second platform. Belay at the left end of this on the arête.&lt;br/&gt;2. 22m 15. Up the line just left of the arête, passing an old piton (still in situ 2017), and climb a short nose to a terrace (pitches 3a and 3b head left from here). For pitches 3c and 3d, continue up a short vegetated slope to the base of the prominent corner. Belay where it steepens.&lt;br/&gt;3a. 28m. From the terrace, move left and up the rib on sloping ledges.&lt;br/&gt;3b. 28m. From the terrace, move left and up the chimney to exit through the bulge.&lt;br/&gt;3c. 28m. Climb straight up the corner, following it to a ledge.&lt;br/&gt;3d. 28m 16. Recommended and the variant depicted on the topo. Climb the corner for 6m, traverse right into the next line and follow this corner system to a ledge and U-bolt rap station (1 x 50m; 1 x 37m). Now out of favour, a final pitch once went up the gully for a further 15m to a big established gum.</climb>

Start at the foot of the rib. &lt;br/&gt;1a. 30m 15. Left hand variant. Climb the rib, but instead of traversing right as for the original line, continue straight up following the exciting narrow rib through two bulges to pull over the top onto the first platform, rejoining the original line. Beware there's a large suspect piece of architecture capping the first bulge. Traverse right across the thin wall and up to the belay station on the second platform as for Pitch 2.&lt;br/&gt;1b. 20m 15. Original route. Climb the front face of the rib to below the first small roof on the right. Hand traverse right 3m and up to belay at the base of the obvious corner.&lt;br/&gt;2. 17m 15. Follow the corner with its hidden surprises and pull up over the jammed block onto the first platform. From the right-hand end of the platform, traverse right across the wall and climb up to the second platform and belay station.&lt;br/&gt;3. 12m 16. Climb the crack on the left then move left onto the arête, keeping clear of the hollow sounding flakes on the right. High step up the arête and then move right and up the wall to a rap station on a narrow fin of rock. Descent (1 x 49m).&lt;br/&gt;&lt;br/&gt;&lt;br/&gt;</climb>

Start from the left hand end of Cracked Pepper 'ledge' or step right as an alternative second pitch to Indian Summer. Climb the lovely little arête on minimal protection until it re-joins Indian Summer at the belay station on pitch 2. Either finish up Indian Summer or rap off (1 x 37m).</climb>

A strong line up the left-facing black corner 10m right of Breaker Spur. Scramble up steeply to start at the "ledge" on the left. Possibly best climbed as one long sustained pitch - but take plenty of mid-sized cams.&lt;br/&gt;1. 26m 17. Easy climbing up to the base of the crack which is climbed using the left face and right arête until face holds on the left wall lead to the hakea above the small roof. Climb past tree and up and left to triple bolt belay.&lt;br/&gt;2. 20m 16. Step back right into the corner and climb the terrific crack line, gently over the Sword of Damocles, to belay at a spike on a ledge on the left. Abseil from rap station down the line (46m).</climb>

Up a series of loose, vegetated walls to a tree covered ledge beneath the chimney. &lt;br/&gt;2. 30m. Climb the bottomless chimney and up the line to belay on a large ledge. &lt;br/&gt;3. 27m. Up the walls above, trending slightly left at the top to a jam crack. &lt;br/&gt;4. 24m. Easier climbing to the top.</climb>

Add a grade if you’re not used to loose rock and long run-outs... add a star if adventure is all that matters to you. Many loose pieces are used in the process of climbing... the loose bits are fairly large, while the surfaces are good quality," (Hamish Jackson). The name really says it all - you have been warned. It would be prudent for belayers to stand out of the possible line of fire.&lt;br/&gt;Start as for Breakout and climb up the dense vegetation to the airy face above. Follows a line just right of the Breakout chimney though some small roofs and open faces reaching a ledge on the left at 40m, then back right onto the face again to finish at larger ledge. Descent: traverse easily left to Cracked Pepper rap station (48m to base of line).</climb>
