Description:

Intriguing multi-pitch winding up the right side of the wall. First pitch is a real winner with fantastic exposure and great rock, second is a bit weird, 3rd is an arête jugfest and last pitch is a jungle bashing adventure. One single 60m rope and 15 draws will suffice. A few long runners for pitch 2 are useful. Rap access - rap 30m from chains to hanging belay on tiny ledge. Rap 15m down into slot (kick yourself in with a swing to make it). Final rap is down and right (facing out from the cliff). You will need to clip several bolts on the way down as directionals. You are aiming for a small ledge at the lowest point of the orange wall and right in the middle. Refer to topo. An amusing optional extra first pitch is to do the traverse pitch of 'Subliminal' to last bolt, then lower down to belay ledge a few meters below.

  1. 30m (21) Traverse horizontally right for 5m then up wall to next small ledge. Right again for a metre then straight up the amazing orange wall above. At about 20m traverse right to arete and final sandy corner. Belay in slot between main wall and balancing boulder. 10 bolts.

  2. 15m (20) Walk across slot to right side of sandy cave. Up right side of arete for 5m then hand traverse left to other side of arete and up steep orange wall to small ledge belay on arete. Use long runners on the 2nd and 3rd bolts. 7 bolts.

  3. 20m (20) 'Arete' for 15m then left and up final short headwall. 'Grovel' up dirty finish to belay on big vegetated ledge. 8 bolts.

  4. 15m (5) To exit stay roped up and scramble left then right up vegetated ramp to base of vegetated chimney. Hand over hand up fixed rope (or chimney if you like wet pants) for 6m to arrive were you started at rap chains.
