The next tier down from 'Hero Wall', about 100m further on. Steep cave. Lots of potential for short difficult sport lines.


Take the vague trail directly below the Pretender at Hero Wall, follow down to the right. follow for about 100-150 metres, at one point goes along a narrow ledge with 10 metre drop below.

Ethic inherited from Waihoo

A mixed of sport and trad routes but all the routes are well equiped with lower offs and solid bolts


Only a few routes so far. Down On The Upside was the first route to go up in 2011, then Talking Marmots and Arboretum in 2012. Still quite a lot of potential.
