Access is approximately 150m past the track that leads down to Lassie&apos;s Wall. Looking south from White Stack the only decent piece of rock is the Sentry Box, 200m away, and just north of the stack you can see Island Zawn with the detached buttress of the island standing in it.&lt;br/&gt;The White Stack area comprises lower (sea level), middle and upper buttresses, between which is a broad ledge. Mithras finishes on this ledge, and it is possible to scramble to the top from the northern end. Access to the lower cliffs is easiest by abseil from this middle ledge.&lt;br/&gt;Island Zawn and Big Zawn are the next two areas north of White Stack, leading to Lassie&apos;s Wall." name="White Stack Area" rock="White granite, 10-25m" sun="Morning sun" walk="5 minutes" id="1" camping="" autonumber="true"/>

Two bolt runners with 2 and 3 RP between bolts. A desperate, bouldery start past first bolt leads to easier climbing on the arête. The route is possibly better done as 23M1.</climb>

  <climb id="112117" stars="" extra="" number="5." name="Chill your beans" length="10" grade="15" fa="Chris Lang, Madi Rosevear, July 2020">The crack with the bush at the base. Up this offwidth (crux) to the ledge, continue up the chimney which has two corner cracks in the back. Layback option, good gear, nice moves, easy to throw a top-rope down; great option for learning crack.&lt;br/&gt;Presumably climbed before but not written up so have added. Edit if "your" line.</climb>
  <climb id="112" stars="" extra="" number="6." name="Winter weddings in December" length="10m" grade="16" fa="Rob Hardy 2017">The crack 1m left of RF. Climb the block to gain the base of a rightward slanting the hand crack. Climb the widening crack on good hand and fist jams. Near the top it is possible to step right to a good foothold on RF or finish directly up the crack. Large cams (4 and 5 camalots) helpful. &lt;br/&gt;N.B. Presumably this has been climbed before as it is a reasonable obvious line, but I couldn't find any details so I have added it here. Please edit if this is "your" line.</climb>
  <climb grade="16" length="10m" name="Roaring Forty" number="67." stars="" id="6" fa="R.McMahon, N.Smith, J.Richardson, 1981.">The companion route to Fishcake and 4m to its right.</climb>

  <climb extra="" grade="22" length="10m" name="Return to Norm-ality" number="89." stars="" id="8" fa="Nick Hancock, Andrew Bissett, Jul 2000.">This is the arête on the right of the ledge, you would have passed under it when you scrambled around. The route follows the arête and scoopy feature to its left. The gear is not great, but probably OK. Small cams in the horizontal after the first few moves and a wire low and right. The crux is standing into the corner and reaching the ledge.</climb>

Climb up left from a bolt belay in an alcove, to follow 6 U bolts via great moves to an easy slab. Belay on gear here and finish up either of the Silent routes.</climb>

  <text class="Discussion" id="12">These next routes are on the east face. They can be identified by first locating Mithras, a strong roof bound crack lined with bolted routes on either side. These can be accessed via abseil from the bolts located on the buttress between Kodak Tart and Fishcake.</text>

  <climb id="100" stars="*" extra="" number="5152." name="Harpic Bliss" length="20m" grade="18" fa="Marcel and Hamish Jackson and Steve Bray, late nineties.">On the east face, around the blocky arete right of Pipeline. Beautiful rock. The stricking narrow off-width up the middle of the face. One the best off-widths at freycinet.&lt;br/&gt;</climb>
  <climb extra="" grade="25" length="20m" name="Planet of the Ape Index" number="5253." stars="**" id="66" fa="Nick Hancock and a woefully short Andrew Bissett, Aug 2001.">Climb the crack to the right of the wall to a small ledge. From here head out left past three bolts. Eventually the arête is reached after a series of moves very challenging to people with a reach of less than 190cm (may be slightly easier if you've more reach or impossible if you've less). Continue up arete to the top. Gear is three u-bolts and some medium cams.</climb>
  <text class="heading2" id="63">Big Zawn</text>
  <text class="description" id="64">Access to the start of these climbs is normally by traversing in from sealevel from the ramp at the base of Lassie's Wall, but it isn't hard to descend at the other end.</text>
  <text class="Discussion" id="67">The next few climbs are on the south side of Big Zawn. They generally face north. The descriptions start at the detatched buttress and work to the right towards the back of the Zawn.</text>
  <climb grade="18" length="10m" name="Amanuensis" number="5354." stars="" id="68" fa="Ben Maddison, Robert McMahon, 1977.">On the detatched pillar opposite Afternoon Shift. Ascend to the top of pillar. Solo down on the sea side of the pillar (crux).</climb>
  <climb grade="17" length="15m" name="Afternoon Shift" number="5455." stars="" id="69" fa="Jim Duff, Robert McMahon, 1980.">The widening crack right opposite the back of the detatched pillar. Unpleasant.</climb>
  <climb grade="17" length="20m" name="Bradwalda" number="5556." stars="" id="70" fa="Robert McMahon, Ben Maddison, 1976.">Start at the crack just right of the aplite seam on the semi-detatched buttress about 25m right of the detatched buttress. Climb straight up the crack to the top. There is an exciting grade 18 variant which moves right at two thirds height.</climb>
  <climb grade="15" length="20m" name="Helios" number="5657." stars="" id="71" fa="Robert McMahon, Ben Maddison, 1976.">The obvious line just above the finish of Bradwalda.</climb>
  <climb grade="18" length="20m" name="Dien Bien Phu" number="5758." stars="" id="72" fa="Garn Cooper, Robert McMahon, Jul 1990.">Start 25m up the hill to the left of the finish of Bradwalda at the foot of the steep handcrack. Climb through the bulge and up the crack above. When this stops climb the slab above.</climb>
  <climb grade="18" length="15m" name="Moby Dick" number="5859." stars="" id="73" fa="Robert McMahon, K.Bischoff, 1980.">A variant start to Waterline. The continuation of the diagonal line down to the left.</climb>
  <climb grade="16" length="50m" name="Waterline" number="5960." stars="" id="74" fa="Robert McMahon, Ben Maddison, 1980.">Located on the left hand end of the wall that faces the land. The line is indicated by a steep slab near the top of the cliff which is split by a good looking crack. Start directly below this, and wander up to gain the crack which is pleasant enough but too short to really compensate for the rest of the climb.</climb>
  <text class="Discussion" id="75">The next few routes are on the other side of the Zawn and generally face southeast.</text>
  <climb grade="18" length="30m" name="Old Snossy" number="6061." stars="" id="76" fa="Ben Maddison, Robert Mcahon, 1979.">Start 5m left of Penetration and 10m left of the back of the zawn, under the overhanging blocks. Up to green sling at 10m then up runout slab above.</climb>
  <climb grade="17" length="30m" name="Penetration" number="6162." stars="" id="77" fa="Robert McMahon, Jim Duff, 1980.">Deep in the gulch. The prow left of Crime of Passion.</climb>
  <climb grade="20" length="50m" name="Crimes of Passion" number="6263." stars="" id="78" fa="Ben Maddison, S.Baker, 1980.">Located on the opposite wall to Waterline, the back wall of the zawn. It takes the line through the right hand end of the roof at half height. The rock is a bit woeful.</climb>
  <climb grade="23" length="30m" name="True, Like Ice, Like Fire" number="6364." stars="" id="79" fa="Robert McMahon, 1989.">As you traverse into Big Zawn you cross a narrow gap where the sea washes in, to get onto a large boulder. This climb starts from the top of the boulder. The pitons used as protection on the first ascent are no longer present. Bridge and face climb up the thin crack and continue up the ever steepening wall and into a small V-ledge and then up a couple of steps to finish.</climb>
  <climb grade="21" length="20m" name="Fast lane" number="6465." stars="" id="80" fa="Nick Deka, Di Batten, Doug Bruce, Pete Steane, 1989.">Just right of the gap. Take the right hand of two possible cracks to gain the overhanging hand cracks. Up this and the face above on the left to finish.</climb>
  <climb grade="16" length="20m" name="Lover&apos;s Hand" number="6566." stars="" id="81" fa="Robert McMahon, Jim Duff, 1980.">The huge gulch. Nice at the top.</climb>
  <climb grade="17" length="15m" name="Fallen Angel" number="6667." stars="" id="82" fa="Roxanne Wells, Nick Deka, Robert McMahon, 1989.">A few metres right of Fast Lane. Up the face and crack on the left and then straight up the crack and over some choss to finish.</climb>
