Crag features

One of, if not the most iconic pieces of rock in the world. The amazing 70m freestanding dolerite seastack on Cape Huay on the Tasman Peninsula, about 2hrs from Hobart. The classic route is The Free Route, now most commonly climbed with the Deep Play alternate first pitch. The orginal Ewbank route has been freed at grade 27.

Approach notes

Park at Fortescue Bay (ParksPass required). Walk along the obvious track to Cape Huay for about 1.5 hours to the lookout. Scramble down until level with the top of the Tote, then ab in, swing in, climb a route and Tyrolean out.
