Description:© (kieranl)

Fantastic climbing through large overhangs. Although the first pitch doesn't offer good climbing and is quite nasty the overall quality of the climb rises above this. Not all parties agree with this.

Start: Just right of a large tree about 40 metres left of where the walking track meets the cliff.

  1. 25m (17) Up difficult, poorly protected grey wall then more easily towards the orange corners and a ledge on the right.

  2. 43m (19) Go up to and up the short corner above then the orange, v-shaped groove on the left. Up this to a ledge on the right.

  3. 44m (18) From middle of ledge, go up towards the huge roof above. Hand-traverse left under the ceiling and pull up into the V-shaped groove at the lip. Groove to top
