    Holbeach's Descent was discovered by Sutherland Club in 1992, (Graeme Holbeach, Mick Dulihunty, Margaret Rozea and Wilf Hilder). It was named by Fr Frank Bendeich in his Waysider No. 235 article. It was also named 'Humble Pie Pass' by Mick after Wilf's mention of eating humble pie after declaring that the aeirial photos showed there could not be a pass there.

    It can be seen in the photo below of Lions Head from Spring Ck Ridge. It is the vertical dark gully to the right of the head.

    Access:

    • Tablelands Rd, Wentworth Falls

    Notes:

    The only notes I know of for this pass can be found at in a Bush Club Newsletter.

    I havn't walked it yet, but will post my own detailed notes when I do so.
