Description

Ho hum, just another fantastic 'Taipan' route. You'll be shaking on the slab section! Continually bouldery climbing split by good rest stances.

Start: Start as for 'Venom' on the ledge 15m off the ground. Traverse right as for Kaa pitch 2 (small-med cams), past the black streak with 2 FHs (don't clip them, that's the "Rattler" direct start, which is grade 27, see 61a on topo), almost to Kaa's second bolt (don't clip this either!). Straight up grey streak above past 6 FHs and a fixed wire up high. Route finishes in large cave at rap rings (35m to the ground). You need a 60m rope to (laboriously) tramline back to the belay, or a 70m to lower off to the ground.
