  <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 terrace 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, On Bended Kness and Scallywag are the only routes on this buttress that finish at the top of the Pipes. Descent for these is from the top of Bert&apos;s Fear (GPS MTW170), requiring 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.

Climb the even narrower chimney on the LH side of the buttress above to access the crest of the ridge. &lt;br/&gt;3. 30m. Follow the broken buttress to a tree and up the steeper wall above to the Brown Madonna terrace (with rap station at far RH end). &lt;br/&gt;4. 45m. Climb L and up the broken slabs and corner until one can move back right into a corner-chimney line. Follow this (past two U bolts) over enormous jammed flakes to two more U bolts on a leaning boulder 15m higher up. Descent: rap station at top (GPS MTW170) 15m to U bolts, 35m to Brown Madonna terrace; 50m to ground.</climb>
  <climb id="37" stars="" extra="" number="13." name="Scallywag project" length="45m" grade="20?" fa="P. Robinson TR Feb. 2021">As Ranulph (the Fiennes) once said; bad, mad and dangerous. This project, top roped by Phil Robinson has yet to be led and is currently open to any takers. Starts at the Brown Madonna terrace and takes the wide crack system left of On Bended Knees. Best to rap into the start via the Bert’s Fear rap station located on the leaning boulder at the top of the final pitch.&lt;br/&gt;&lt;br/&gt;From Brown Madonna terrace climb left and up the broken slabs to the base of a clean wide bottomless crack. Launch into this with gusto until a rest on a foothold on the R wall. Alternatively, traverse L into the crack from a few metres of easy climbing on the R. The crack narrows to hands and a loose flake within it. A somewhat slippery black lichen coated V-chimney follows for 8m to a couple of loose blocks hindering the exit. Take care. Follow cracks and large blocks to join Bert’s Fear 8m from the top. (Difficult to remove the loose blocks as any dislodged rock would likely land near the sports routes at the foot of Pooch Gully 80m below).</climb>
  <climb id="36" stars="*" extra="↓" number="14." name="On Bended Knees" length="45m" grade="16" fa="P. Robinson, T. McKenny, Feb 2012.">Starts from Brown Madonna terrace and takes a line up the wall to the left of the final pitch of Bert's Fear. Climb left and up the broken slabs and corner, as for Bert’s Fear, to a hand crack splitting the steepening wall. Jam the hand crack, then traverse left, climb the finger crack just right of the nose to negotiate some piled blocks to reach a large ledge. Traverse up and right for 3m across the chimney to the two U bolts on Bert's Fear, beckoning an abseil or, for the true directissima, climb on through the bush and over more blocks for 10m to the top of the column. Reverse back down to the bolts to abseil.</climb>

Bowman, Feb 1979.">Persistence always pays off and this route is no exception. Start 7m R of Bert's Fear at a shallow corner. &lt;br/&gt;1. 30m. Crux. Climb the corner past an awkward move to a ledge. Step R, organise your "pro" and climb up negotiating small slab to the next ledge. Abseil off here.&lt;br/&gt;2. 10m. Or climb back L and up the short corner to an abseil point further up.</climb>

The route provides an alternative 2nd pitch to the old classic. Originally a project of the credited first ascentionist, until his red tag went astray. It received two ascents by the unsuspecting N. Hancock and A. Williams. Climb either the first pitch of Precarious (20), or the first 10m of Chop Sticks (18) to the belay to start. Start on the LH face of the arête for a few moves then trend L following a line of fixed hangers to the "Fiddlesticks" ledge. Ether abseil off the DBB at the top of the pillar at the RH end of the ledge, as for Chopsticks, or continue up Fiddlesticks to Brown Madonna rap station.</climb>

Straightforward climbing past a couple of small to mid-size cams and a bolt leads to the Precarious ledge, followed by excellent arête climbing on good rock (one of the bolts is around on the RH face but stay on the arête). Take a large wire or 0.5 Camalot for higher up. DBB on final pillar.</climb>

  <climb id="8" name="The Cuts" number="24." 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>
  <climb id="7" name="Digitalis" number="25." extra="↓" grade="18" length="62m" stars="**" fa=" J. Moore, R. Williams. FFA: D. Bowman, M. Steane, Dec 1977. Direct Finish: P. Robinson, C. Hewer, K. Robinson, Dec. 2011.">Fine climbing up a distinctive line. The more appealing left hand finish is recommended. Starts off the ledge in the corner 5m left of After Midnight. Take cams up to fist size.&lt;br/&gt;1. 26m. Up the corner, following the line through a small overlap (crux). Continue up past a large semi-detached flake to a belay ledge at the base of a corner. &lt;br/&gt;2a. 36m. Left hand finish. Bridge and jam the corner for 28m until a flake with positive holds on the left hand wall is reached. Move up onto the left wall, stepping left onto the arete. Hand traverse left across a horizontal ledge for 2m into the base of a shallow recess. Up the recess, negotiating an awkward final move onto the belay ledge.&lt;br/&gt;2b. 36m. Direct Finish. Instead of moving onto the left wall, follow the corner to the top. Descent: From the belay, scramble 10m right to the Brown Madonna terrace and rap station (50m).</climb>
  <climb id="6" name="After Midnight" number="26." 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="27." 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="28." 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 variant has also been climbed on natural gear by Adam Donoghue in 2014. 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>
  <climb id="3" name="Brown Madonna" number="29." extra="↓" grade="19" length="49m" stars="***" fa="D. Groom, J. Moore, D.Batten 1968 but long attributed to K. Carrigan, G. Child, Feb 1978, who renamed the chimney Brown Madonna">"Brown Lady will you marry me?" quoth the Jake. 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. (originally known as Black Madonna in the late 60s/early 70s). Climb the chimney to where it narrows before traversing out and up. Continue up the imposing crack line and blind corner to the terrace and rap anchors (50m).</climb>
