|I probably can't offer much advice - I visited the cliff just the once nearly 40 years ago!
I don't know where else it might be described, but it's listed in my copy of the 1991 VCC guide "South-Eastern Grampians" by Chris Baxter. From memory I led pitch 1 (and probably pitch 3) while Kevin led the crux pitch 2.
Boats Against the Current 63m 22
Airy wanderings which provide sections of great climbing; now superseded by Intermission (25).
1) Climb Hotspur for 8m. L to arete, up to roof, L to stance on BT (Borrowed Time?).
2) 20m Go back to the arete. Bridge up under roofs to a ledge on R. Traverse R to Hotspur.
3) 25m Traverse a few m L, then up and L.

Hotspur 42m 18
The corner which dominates the middle of the cliff. Its beetling overhangs are overcome with surprising moves.
1) (crux) Climb the rotten crack in the L wall (8m right of FWBT (For Whom the Bells Toll)) into the niche. Step R into the line and follow it.
2) 21m The line.

I hope this helps!
