Description:© (jgoding)

Follows a beautiful natural line of features up the centre of the face with some superb, sustained face climbing. An intense, crimpy start for the first 4 bolts, then some nice moves on big holds leads to the crux between the 7th and 8th bolt. A powerful move to gain the stance below the hanging flake, then some funky layaways and heelhooking on the flake leads to a good rest. The next clipping stance is a bit precarious and nerve wracking – sorry about that. Easy up the face until a sting in the tail just below the anchors on some rounded laybacks with little for the feet. A classic. 13 bolts.

Start: About 50m further R of the descent gully amphitheatre is a bolted line up a neat face beside a large eucalypt.
