Description:© (kieranl)

This route started life as an aid route and covers some interesting territory. Unfortunately the first pitch is very dirty. It was cleaned for the free ascent but a soak at the top of the pitch means that it gets dirty very quickly. Also, the section shared with 'Dinosaur Gully' detracts somewhat. The star is for the climb in a clean state.

  1. 21m (21) Climb twin cracks and traverse to corner on right. Up corner, exit left to bolt belay.

  2. 28m (20) Step right around overhang and up to second one. Left and up wall to ceiling. Traverse left and up (dangerous loose flake) then up to next roof. Left to arete. Up to second belay of 'Dinosaur Gully'.

  3. 24m (15) As for 'Dinosaur Gully' pitch 3.

  4. 30m (23) Thin crack up and right from middle of ledge to corner. Corner to terrace.
