Start: Start beneath the obvious clean shallow corner blasting up the highest part wall.
25m (- M2) Two bolts off the deck to L-trending slab (might have to dig out some placements!) then up the crack.
35m (- M4) Sustained aiding up the thin corner to a hanging belay on the R wall. Cam hooks are useful, but far from necessary. Take plenty of RPs and wires regardless.
40m (- M4) Continue up the corner, using a mixture of thin and fixed gear. Move left to ledge with tree to belay.
8m (10) This last bit to Big Grassy is best kept as a separate pitch to avoid ridiculous rope drag. Alternatively, finish pitch 3 at the belay at the end of pitch 2 of free version (ledge off to the R with DBB), then take the fourth pitch all the way to Big Grassy.
35m (- M3) More thin gear up the corner above Big Grassy. Take the L line after 20?m (R line is Ozy Direct), then up to DBB at start of amazing corner.
30m (- M2) Up the corner. Belay off to the L.
35m (- M3) Some awkward times lie ahead. Up through the dirty cracks and bulges. Finish at semi-hanging TBB.
15m (- M2) Traverse L to ledge.
20m (14) Chimneys. Have fun with the haul sack if you brought one.
25m (10) More chimneys. You will be loving your pig even more by the end!
