  <header id="1" access="Flange Buttress is accessed from the climbers&apos; carpark. Walk left along the Organ Pipes Track for 150m, to the signposted Flange Buttress track heading uphill to the right (GPS MTW030). The track heads up initially through bush, then follows a prominent boulder lead before reentering the bush close to the base of the cliff near Bert&apos;s Fear, an obvious body-width chimney. The track forks left and right just below here.&lt;br/&gt;&lt;br/&gt;Taking the fork down hill to the left provides access to routes between Drama Queen and Precarious. To access routes right of Precarious, follow the righthand fork.&lt;br/&gt;&lt;br/&gt;With the exception of Pooch Gully and Bert&apos;s Fear, all routes are between 20m and 60m in length. Many of the routes finish on the big ledge at the top of Brown Madonna.&lt;br/&gt;&lt;br/&gt;To descend climbs in this area, there are rap anchors on Princess (20m), Influenza (28m), Nefarious (25m), Bert&apos;s Butter Menthol (28m), Chop Sticks the Sequel (35m), Neon God (2x 25m), After Midnight (50m), Pleasant Screams (2x 30m) and Brown Madonna (50m).&lt;br/&gt;&lt;br/&gt;Bert&apos;s Fear is the only route on this buttress that continues to the top of the Pipes. Descent from the top of Bert&apos;s Fear (GPS MTW170), requires three abseils (1x 15m; 1x 35m) and a final rap down Brown Madonna (50m)." acknowledgement="" history="" intro="Flange Buttress is the compact reddish buttress situated between Central Buttress and the Columns.  Pooch Gully flags the LH end of Flange Buttress, while the deep chimney of Brown Madonna marks the RH end where it merges with the Columns.&lt;br/&gt;&lt;br/&gt;Flange Buttress is a popular crag with a large number good quality sport and trad routes. It is often warmer here than other parts of the Pipes particularly on cool and wintry days. Abseil access off the crag is abundant and straight forward.&lt;br/&gt;&lt;br/&gt;" name="Flange Buttress" rock="Dolerite faces and arêtes up to 60m.

  <climb id="12" name="Fiddlesticks" number="18." extra="↓" grade="14" length="55m" stars="***" fa="T. Terry, G. Wyatt, 1967.">A classic, and being one of the relatively few quality easier climbs on the Pipes, it sees a lot of traffic. Good pro and a sunny aspect add to the attraction. Start 16m uphill and north of Bert's Fear, next to Neon God. Scramble up to the base of the corner containing twin cracks. &lt;br/&gt;1. 30m. Straight up the corner, belaying in the notch on the L. There is a rap station on top of the pillar at the RH end of the ledge, as for Chopsticks. &lt;br/&gt;2. 25m. Either climb the flakes on the wall and traverse R into the main crack line, or step directly into the line from near the belay. Follow the line until you either step around the arête to climb the LH wall or continue up the vee-groove to a large ledge. Very classy climbing. Rap off as for Brown Madonna. Alternatively finish up On Bended Knees (45m) and descend as for Bert's Fear.</climb>
  <climb id="10" name="Neon God" number="19." extra="18Þ" grade="25" length="50m" stars="***" fa="S. Edwards, Jan 1997.">Simply irresistible! Join the mob. (Best done as 1 pitch)&lt;br/&gt;1. 25m 22. The popular 1st pitch follows the straight line of U-bolts on the wall to the R of Fiddlesticks. 10Þ + 2Þ Belay&lt;br/&gt;2. 25m 25. The second pitch is better, but is climbed less. Continue up the line past a thin and technical crux at about one-third height. Rap anchors. 7Þ + 2Þ Belay</climb>
  <climb id="33" name="The Kundalini Flow" number="20." extra="" grade="26" length="50m" stars="**" fa="Adam Donoghue, Feb, 2013">Most of Neon God has now been climbed on trad gear, The Kundalini Flow. It may be a profound mystical experience for some but it will certainly be a test of ability and mental strength to complete the line on marginal gear while studiously ignoring the presence of 20 seductive and beckoning bolts. &lt;br/&gt;Climb up the initial crack of Big Sticks and Beatings for 5m then join 'the vague trad weakness up the Neon God wall, looking for gear.' The last 6 pieces below the crux are # 2 and 3 RP's......</climb>
  <climb id="27" name="The Holy Road" number="21." extra="Þ ↓" grade="23" length="25m" stars="**" fa="R. Parkyn, Jan 1997.">A less demanding RH alternative to the second pitch of Neon God. The crux is passing the second U-bolt.</climb>
  <climb id="9" name="Big Sticks and Beatings" number="22." extra="↓" grade="21" length="70m" stars="**" fa="N. Deka, S. Bunton, 1989.">A sustained excursion up the wall right of Neon God. &lt;br/&gt;1. 35m. Climb the thin crack, moving right at 10m to pass the thinnest section. Continue up the shallow corner, then traverse right to Digitalis and belay on ledge. 2. 35m. Finish up Digitalis to the Brown Madonna rap station.</climb>
  <climb id="8" name="The Cuts" number="23." extra="2Þ" grade="21" length="48m" stars="**" fa="Originally called Blue Sky, the face and arête were climbed by  D. Stephenson, J. Otlowski in  1996; the corner:was later added by H. &amp; M. Jackson in  Mar 1998 and the direct start and  finish by H. Jackson, B. Maddison in Dec 2014.">A brilliant and intimidating line on the arête and face between Big Sticks and Beatings and Digitalis. It earns stars for the climbing and the position, not for the loose rock down low. Ascend the pedestal 3m right of Big Sticks and Beatings, climb up to small roof and reach up and around right to a jug. Continue up the steep and well protected flakes right of the arête, until angle eases and a shallow corner is reached (18m). Ascend the shallow corner right of arête with increasing difficulty to a ledge at 35m. Step back onto the arête and climb the face past 2 bolts (crux) to the Neon God anchors.</climb>

Robinson, Dec. 2011.">Fine crack climbing up a distinctive line. The original finish is recommended. Start at the first crack system around the arête L of Brown Madonna. Take cams up to fist size.&lt;br/&gt;1. 26m. Climb the crack through a small overlap and continue past a large detached flake to belay on a ledge at base of a corner. &lt;br/&gt;2a. 36m. Original finish. Bridge and jam the corner for 26m. When a jug behind a small flake on the right wall is reached, traverse boldly out left across the wall to the arête. Climb up just left of the arête for 3m before traversing horizontally L to the base of a shallow recess. Up the recess, negotiating an awkward final move onto the belay ledge. Alternatively continue a further 2m up the crack (above the original route traverse), reach diagonally up left, step left around the arête to rejoin the original finish.&lt;br/&gt;2b. 36m. Direct Finish. Instead of traversing left, continue up the crack to the top. Traverse 10m right to reach the Brown Madonna rap station.</climb>
  <climb id="6" name="After Midnight" number="25." extra="Þ ↓" grade="24" length="50m" stars="***" fa="S. Edwards, Jan 1995.">A modern classic that is consistent quality all the way. Demonstrates what can be done with school holidays and a nickel-cadmium power-pack. The arête between Brown Madonna and Digitalis. Fifteen quick draws required en-route plus something to clip into the abseil anchors.</climb>
  <climb id="4" name="Pleasant Screams" number="26." extra="Þ ↓" grade="26" length="55m" stars="***" fa="S. Edwards, Dec 1996.">Tasmania's 'To Bolt or Not To Be'. The face L of Brown Madonna. &lt;br/&gt;1. 20m 25. Start at the bottom of the face moving towards the R arête after 10 m and back L to a hanging belay. Worth working in its own right. &lt;br/&gt;2. 35m 26. Continue up the amazing face above past another 12 U's, at 2/3 height move R into Brown Madonna before returning to the line and up to the anchors. It may be worth wearing a helmet for the flakes on the first pitch.</climb>
  <climb id="5" name="Pleasant Screams Direct " number="27." extra="Þ ↓" grade="29 " length="50m " stars="***" fa="S. Parsons, Mar 2007.">This variant is a single mega pitch that follows the line (and bolts) to the top. Start on the face and climb to a 'rest' about 2 bolts below the hanging belay. Once 'recovered' follow the line of bolts to the top, staying on the face.&lt;br/&gt;Note: This pitchvariant has also been climbed on mostly natural gear by Adam Donoghue clippingin only the 2nd and 4th bolt on the 1st pitch2014. He pre-placed two pitons in thin cracks on the first 15m, and later removed them after the ascent. It's still waiting for a 'clean' ascent without the pitons.</climb>

An elegant route with all the qualities of consistency, length of pitch and fantastic pro. Above the daunting chimney is a sustained crack and corner system of gob-smacking brilliance. Climb the chimney to where it narrows before traversing out and up. Continue up the imposing crack line and blind corner to the large ledge and rap anchors.</climb>
