Description:© (kieranl)

Finishes up a sustained groove in the head wall. Some dirt and loose blocks detract from the climb overall, but it could clean up quite well. Originally graded 14. Start: as for Commando Climb.

  1. 17m (12) Follow Commando Climb to ledge on the right.

  2. 44m (16) Crack on right then up right side of wall [L of closed groove]. Continue up steep seam, when it runs out traverse 3 metres left [loose blocks] then follow right leaning groove to bushy cave below overhang. The route may originally have gone higher before traversing L, this would be very unprotected and quite hard.

  3. 25m (18) Go 4 metres left along scrubby ledge. Crack to ledge on right. RH line with increasing difficulty to top.
