Cracks at buffalo

Im looking for some short (10-30m) single pitch jam cracks at buffalo upto grade 18.
Preferably 1 or 2 BD cam sized. Any recommendations?

Failing that, anything with plenty of gear?

Beowulf (18) and top pitch of Initiation (~15 - easy to rap into).

The Hump. It is a four (?) pitch grade 18. You could rap into the gully at the beginning of the last pitch.

The Initiation?

Yeah - don't think we are adding much value now. Just to be clear: The Initiation @ The Hump. Top pitch - by that I mean the last pitch which is a top pitch. The grade of the pitch may be 15.

Anyway, after all that, if you are only interested in cracks don't bother about The Hump. Mostly slabs.

Top pitch of Wicked Solitaire (18) South Side
Oscar (?11/12) Wall of China
There's a steep hand-crack at Chalwell's Gallery (18ish) by Nic Taylor - can't remember the name.

As well as the above suggestions you could also try...

'Corner Crack' and also 'Crack and Corner' - The Castle.
1st pitch of The Pintle - The Horn.
1st pitch of Country Road - Oval area.
Devilled Cream - Sth side access track.
2nd pitch of Maharajah - Cathedral.
... then drop back down and do the 2nd pitch of Sultan, back to the same topout.
Toprope Lift Girls Lament (Gd 21) but worth it for a finger crack experience. - Oval Area.

Those came to mind readily, but I am sure there are many others.
