Who/When: Luke Sarantos and Neil Magil, September 2012
Anchors: We found it much easier to tension from the eastern side. There is 2 ringbolts and a carrot (take bolt plates) for the line tension, you will find a bunch of boulders and trees to choose from for the back up. On the western side, you will find a bushy tree about 30cm in diameter close to the cliff edge, we used this for the line tension. There is a massive gum tree about 4m behind the anchor tree that we used for the back up.
Linking: Take a Slingshot or bow and arrow, it is not possible to walk the line around.
