  <header access="The base of Whitewater Wall can be reached by following a rough track which begins where the old road first meets the top of the cliff. From the cliff top, head north (along the top of the cliff) to follow an indistinct pad to a rock cairn that marks the start of the descent (100m or so from where you first get the cliff top). The descent can be tricky in parts. Head down via a series of steps to a big terrace which is directly north of Whitewater Wall (above Light Fingered Madison Buttress). ScrambleWalk behindright theto notch at the southern end of the terrace, scramble behind the notch and down climb a short corner to the base of the wall. The large aplite dyke which crosses the wall from left to right is Apline.

  <text class="heading3" id="21">Light Fingered Maddison Buttress</text>
  <text class="text" id="22">The Light Fingered Maddison Buttress is the compact wall rising out of the sea to the north of Whitewater Wall. Routes here are condition dependent, but the rock quality here is excellent. Best accessed by walking about 50m at sea-level to the north of Whitewater Wall. Routes from Rent a Rocket onwards are best via abseil, although Rent a Rocket itself can be accessed via a short traverse from the left.</text>

  <climb name="Up the Ante" id="55" extra="" grade="18" length="12m" number="4647." stars="" fa="N.Hancock, C.Hurst, Oct 2000.">Approximately 14m left of All Hands to the Pump. The right hand arête of the next pinnacle. The crux is off the ground and the gear after this is good.</climb>
  <climb name="Orange Crush" id="56" extra="" grade="20" length="10m" number="4748." stars="**" fa="R.Parkyn, A.Bissett, N.Hancock, Aug 2002.">Clip the bolt and climb the face to another via the tricky start. Follow the holds up and left, crossing the wide diagonal crack ( 4 camalot) to gain a third bolt. Head past this up the orange face to the top (mid-sized cams to belay).</climb>
  <climb name="All Hands to the Pump" id="57" grade="22" length="15m" number="4849." stars="**" fa="N.Hancock, C.Hurst, Aug 2000.">On the semi-detached orange topped pinnacle nearest the sea. Start up the line on the east to gain a ledge. Continue steeply through the bulge and on to the top via the sparsely protected open groove.</climb>
  <text class="heading3" id="58">Tango Towers - Right Side</text>
  <text class="text" id="59">If you are looking at the Tango Towers from the sea, around on the RHS towards Bluestone Bay is a 6m high, gently overhanging wall with a striking crack spliting in the middle. It is about 2 minutes' walk from the Tango Towers main area. These four climbs are on this wall.</text>
  <climb name="Generation Y" id="60" extra="" grade="18" length="6m" number="4950." stars="" fa="Will Bartlett and Alex Lewis, Sep 2009">On the left hand side on the wall there is a thrutchy pink band. Up this. Move right to top out.</climb>
  <climb name="Generation O" id="61" extra="" grade="19" length="6m" number="5051." stars="*" fa="Alex Lewis and Will Bartlett, Sep 2009">The thin, striking crack. Quite a nice bouldery sequence straight off the ground with some dynamic moves. Once the juggy horizontal break is reached, top out straight up. Red and Green C3's protect the lower moves.</climb>
  <climb name="A Bit of Alright" id="62" extra="" grade="14" length="6m" number="5152." stars="" fa="Alex Lewis and Will Bartlett, Sep 2009">Beginning on the lower RHS of the wall is a juggy horizontal break that moves left and up. Follow this to join Generation O.</climb>
  <climb name="Good Stuff" id="63" extra="" grade="19" length="4m" number="5253." stars="" fa="A.Lewis and W.Bartlett, Sep 2009">The RHS of the wall culminates in an overhanging prow. Climb this without going too far left or right. Might be a boulder problem, unsure of this as it could easily be done with mats.</climb>
