[Perfect water-washed slabs on Brolga, 3 kb]A good introduction to the harder slabs here - take lots of RPs! Starting from a landing at the bottom of a large water-streak, head up and slowly right. Move carefully back left onto the streak after ~13m and continue on up to a sloping ledge and belay (16). Head straight up the upper slab, enjoying the rock and moves until a big ledge can be foudn for a belay (16) - Salamander's fourth belay. Finish up Salamander (12).

A fine route but remember that a Brolga is a bird with a LONG NECK. Take as many small and medium cams as you can and double ropes.
