Start: Start at the commandingly wide corner (with a dog leg to the left halfway up) leading towards the big roof.
20m (20) Follow the wide corner, passing an old aid bolt that is now superseded by a large cam (#4 Camalot or equiv.). Move on up to belay in the cave.
15m (15) Up the short wall to the R and skirt around R to an alcove to belay (with 1 carrot bolt, plus gear).
30m (18) A fantastic finalé. An awkward start leads to an amazing collection of big flakes stacked on top of each other, creating a wonderful line of jugs. Once the holds run out, run it out up the slab above to the top of the pinnacle (DBB).
Descent as for Maharaja (17).
- Ethic: inherited from Mount Buffalo
Trad climbing rules here! Bolts are a last resort! Most of the major aid lines can be done clean using modern gear unless noted. Freeing of aid sections should probably attempted as trad before resorting to fixed artificial protection.
