Head straight up from the anchors to the slightly overhung short wall to gain the anchors at the flat top. Can exit to Halfway House Terrace from the top easily then rap over Clemency (recommended as rapping from the top of Aphelion has seen a few epics with stuck ropes).

Ethic: inherited from Glasshouse Mountains

Modern climbers establishing new routes have taken great pains to ensure any new routes do not interfere with the historic routes established many decades ago.

Retro-bolting of existing routes is unacceptable!

New routes shall make use of traditional protection where available.
