Very unique, unusual and sustained climbing that lives up to the route name.&lt;br/&gt;Can be done in one or two pitches.

Climb up past second bolt to higher horizontal, then traverse and downclimb until able to gain the offwidth flare. Follow flaring crack to double bolt belay.&lt;br/&gt;2. 30m 25, 11 bolts to double bolt belay. Keep following crack and seam until it peters out (crux), climb up new crack until it's possible to traverse left. Use extendables on the four bolts from the beginning of the traverse to avoid rope drag. Follow golden slab to ledge with double bolt belay.&lt;br/&gt;Descent: rap off with two 50m ropes. rope stretch will see you safely to the ground on the left (avoid little gully on the right).&lt;br/&gt;Topo shows first pitch and beginning of the second pitch up to about the crux.

Start a few metres right from into the labyrinth. Powerful moves to good rest on small ledge. Straight off the ledge is the crux. Wonderful, technical climbing all the way to the top. Take 18 draws with at least 10 X 60cm extendable draws to reduce drag. Maybe appropriate to climb on double ropes if going ground up or it is easy enough to equip the route whilst rappelling down into the labyrinth to ensure minimal rope drag as the routes is quite wandery.</climb>

There is a significant amount of effort involved in the access, but is a great adventure.&lt;br/&gt;&lt;br/&gt;Access&lt;br/&gt;The first ascent team approached by Walking Northwest from the old farm house at the End of Big River Rd. It I possible that the scrub was less thick during their approach due to a possible fire some 20 years earlier. Nearly thirty years on from their ascent the tea tree forest below razorback is ferocious and would take significantly longer than the two hours suggested in the route description found in ‘Climb northern Tasmania’. Good luck.&lt;br/&gt;An alternative Access route can be found by following Cronleys Creek on the West Side of the mountain. Access the creek from the side of the road. Thrash up this for roughly a couple of hours until razorback can be seen on you right. Head up an over the ridge on the southern end of Razorback. Traverse along the bottom to the Northern end of the cliff where the obvious line can be seen. A small tent platform can be found near the base. Allow 3 to 4 hours.&lt;br/&gt;&lt;br/&gt;Double rack of Camelots from #0.3 to #3 and 4x #4 (A #5 could be handy if you’re not into that sort of thing) 2 x 60m ropes for rappel&lt;br/&gt;&lt;br/&gt;1. Grade 21 - Climb thin crack, which widens above small tree to double bolt belay for first ascent party. If you’re feeling bold back the anchor up and bring your second up. If not, back up the anchor and lower down retrieving all your gear from the small tree and above and pull back up the rope to anchor and continue climbing route as one pitch.&lt;br/&gt;2. Grade 22 - Continue up widening crack. Look in the thinner crack on the right for gear to save your larger gear. Climb to small alcove and rappel from chock stone backed up with the horn on side of alcove (dodgy).&lt;br/&gt;&lt;br/&gt;Recommend taking a drill to replace bolts on pitch one and put in a proper rappel. &lt;br/&gt;&lt;br/&gt;&lt;br/&gt;&lt;br/&gt;&lt;br/&gt;&lt;br/&gt;</climb>
