Marginal protection on first pitch. Both this pitch and the its next-door neighbour 'Puppet' On A String are very good pitches but possibly the most serious of their grades at 'Arapiles'. Still not sure if they deserve the skull-and-crossbones (have taken them off this climb) but they are very serious.
Peter Watling accidentally climbed this pitch in the 70's thinking it was 'Hot Flap' Direct Start!
50m (18) Climb up midway between the black moss streaks to join 'Hot Flap'. Belay when rope runs out.
35m (-) Up to Siren's corner and climb right wall to stance just below Hot Flap's fourth pitch traverse.
35m (17) Up over traverse line then delicately up on black rock to two horizontal cracks. Step right to runners then back left and up impressive headwall to terrace.
10m (-) Groove in final wall.
First Ascent: Malcolm Matheson, Keith Lockwood, 27 Jun 1983
