  <header autonumber="true" camping="" walk="20 min" sun="Not much sun" rock="Dolerite walls and cracks up to 80m" name="Bulging Buttress" intro="Bulging Buttress spans the wide-ranging area between Avalanche Couloir and Teardrop Gully. The buttress is divided into LH and RH sections by a centrally located prow. At the LH end close to Avalanche Couloir is SSSSI Wall, a hanging wall of quality looking lines that rises to join the main buttress to its right. Right of here on the LHS of the prow is a steep, clean wall (Black Magic area) on which several fine sport and trad routes reside. The prow has a pronounced step 25m off the ground that traverses left underneath this clean wall. On the RHS of the prow the routes are initially shorter and finish on the step. Further right the routes become longer before the cliff eventually merges into the natural continuation of Teardrop Gully. The quality of the rock right of the prow is definitely poorer than that on the LHS. " history="" acknowledgement="" access="Bulging Buttress is accessed from the climbers&apos; carpark. Walk left along the Organ Pipes Track for approximately 400m arriving at the signposted Bulging Buttress/University Buttress track junction that heads right up a boulder field (GPS MTW070). Follow this climbers&apos; track to where it meets the base of the cliff just right of the prow. This is the Jelly Wall area.&lt;br/&gt;&lt;br/&gt;Following the track left provides access to routes between SSSI and Malignant Mushroom. Access to SSSI Wall is by following the track left around the prow, then traversing across and up to enter Avalanche Couloir.  For access to routes in the Black Magic area follow the track left around the prow then up slightly to the base of the cliff.&lt;br/&gt;&lt;br/&gt;For routes right of the prow, the climbers&apos; track meets the cliff at the Jelly Roll area. To access routes in the Breaker Spur area follow the base of the cliff further right.  &lt;br/&gt;&lt;br/&gt;To descend climbs on this buttress, there are rap anchors on Mildly Amused (35m), Heat Pump (50m), Warm Glow (50m), Black Magic (47m and 35m: or 60m to bottom of access gully), Dal Nulla (30m), Jelly Roll (35m),Smoke and Mirrors (32m), and Breaker Spur  area (50m and 37m)." id="1"/>

  <text class="text" id="19">A clean hanging black wall located right of Avalanche Couloir that offers quality steep routes.

At the LH end of the wall is a clean steep corner capped by a roof at 20m. &lt;br/&gt;Climb the thin corner crack to the roof. Step L and up to DBB on a small ledge. Any old pegs on the line should be ignored and preferably removed, as they are well past their use-by date.</climb>

Start as for Beaten and Abused. At the horizontal break at 6m where Beaten and Abused goes R, go slightly L and up (tricky) into the crack above until the first U can be clipped. Undercling around the flake (crux) then continue up the face and arête above. Good natural pro is available in the crack (wires and cams), then 9 fixed anchors lead to a rap station.</climb>

Start just R of the arête to the R of SSSSI, at the base of the black streaks. Layback the thin flake to the horizontal break, then move R and climb the hand and finger crack past a couple of bulges to a second horizontal break. Step R and finish up the widening crack as for Crazed and Confused.</climb>

Crazed and Confused is the RH variant. About 15m R of SSSSI, locate a large pedestal at the base of a steep black streaked wall. Climb the LH side of the pedestal. Launch off this and up a short steep wall (crux) until it is possible to step L into the prominent crack. Climb the crack and then mount the block on the L to a belay stance.</climb>

Grunty work through the overhang (going rightwards) leads to some thinner moves on the arete (crux), continue up and then step left onto the ledge. Finish by lay-backing the fin of rock up to the anchors. &lt;br/&gt;Variant, "What's Left" (23): from the U at the overhang go straight up and climb through to the ledge on the left side of the arete.</climb>

On the LH side of Bulging Buttress and obscured in the corner is a prominent line capped by a large overhang. Scramble up over blocks to the base of the line. &lt;br/&gt;1. 25m. Climb up to the overhang, pass it on the L and follow the steep crack to a ledge. &lt;br/&gt;2. 25m. Continue up a short, awkward corner to a large ledge then straight up to base of the black corner. &lt;br/&gt;3. 30m. A demanding pitch. Up the vee-chimney, jam through the bulge and continue pleasantly to the top. Descend by walking down Avalanche Couloir or arranging a tape abseil.</climb>
  <climb name="Cold Power" id="15" fa="Pete Steane, D. Fife, Mar 1996." grade="21" length="30m" extra="↓" stars="***" number="8.">A scary start and a pumpy finish. This route is on the wall of the buttress R of The Wizard. It might be advisable to have your belayer stay down in the gully below to avoid the 4m horizontal fall factor 1.0 from the belay. Either way, if you fall off the bottom section your gear is unlikely to hold so take your pick: risk become a gurgling bloody mess via the 4m horizontal or painlessly take the 20m death plunge.</climb>
  <climb name="Heat Pump" id="14" fa="R. Parkyn, N. Hancock, 2002." grade="22" length="50m" extra="Þ ↓" stars="***" number="9.">Leave your trad rack at home. Best on a warm day. &lt;br/&gt;1. 25m 18. Start about 10m L of the scramble up to Black Magic. Follow the line of U-bolts past the LH end of an overlap to ledge with DBB. &lt;br/&gt;2. 25m 22. Classy climbing between the arête and the prominent black streak on the LH side of the steep wall.</climb>

Follows the conspicuous black chimney in the centre of the steep and impressive wall. Scramble up the weakness and just below the top of the step move left to belay at the base of the chimney 10m L of Black Magic.&lt;br/&gt;1. 50m. Up the groove past three ancient pitons to a ledge at 35m near the Warm Glow (WG) rap station. Bridge R and make an intimidating move into the bottomless chimney. Continue up line to a a large ledge with a bollard belay. &lt;br/&gt;2. 30m. Climb the chimney at the back of the ledge then up slab to a small tea-tree at the base of double-cracks in a corner. Climb the cracks and finish via the left line up a short chimney to top. Descent: A 45m rap from threaded slings reaches the WG rap station. Then a 50m rap to base of cliff.</climb>
  <climb name="Black Magic" id="11" fa="K. Carrigan, I. Lewis, Jan 1975." grade="18" length="53m" extra="↓" stars="***" number="13.">A Pipes classic that is now generally done as a single pitch. Takes the line R of centre on the steep south-facing wall. Scramble 15m up the weakness to the top of the step. Climb the slab to a stance below an over-hanging crack. Jam up and over a spike then up the crack to a ledge. A thoughtful move L and up into small niche is necessary to gain the base of a wide crack equipped with finger jams. Up and step right onto the wall then back left into the crack to reach the next ledge. Continue up the hand-crack to a pea-pod. Step R at this point to the prow and Black Magic rap station - 47m to top of the step, with a second rap (35m) from there to the ground.</climb>

Climb Black Magic to just above the bulge at about 15m, and step R onto the face, past a spike, and either 1) climb the crack on the LH side of the huge detached flake or 2) traverse R another metre and climb the off-width on the RH side of the flake. Continue directly up the face above via a fist and hand crack, trending R and finishing up the prow to the BM rap bolts.</climb>

Belay off the Jelly Roll rap anchors on the step, 7m R of Black Magic. &lt;br/&gt;Climb up past a dangerous looking spike (or take the line just to the R) and follow the corner until level with a small roof. Traverse R on slopey rail and step around the prow. Move R slightly and up to DBB.&lt;br/&gt;</climb>

Belay off the Jelly Roll rap anchors on the step, 7m R of Black Magic.&lt;br/&gt;Step R of the arête and ascend flake then arête with increasing difficulty and spaced protection to the overlap. Difficult moves past this, up past a bolt, then R to small ledge. Easier moves back on the arête lead to another ledge and up to the DBB .&lt;br/&gt;</climb>

  <text class="heading3" id="35">Jelly Wall</text>
  <text class="text" id="29">The access track meets the cliff at the base of the next routes. They climb the wall just right of the prow and finish on the step in the buttress. They can be done as access routes to climbs starting from the step or as nice single pitch climbs in their own right. There are rap stations above Jelly Roll (35m), Smoke and Mirrors (32m) and Dal Nulla (30m).</text>
