A long and sustained first pitch (best to do it in two pitches, belaying off double bolts), Double Ropes essential (make sure they are both a full 50m). Take one bolt bracket, eleven quick draws and a #1 Friend to back up the single bolt belay, and some wires to protect the short easier second pitch.
Start: The first slab on the main slabby face, right at the left-hand corner, a couple metres left of 'Freedom Crack'.
50m Use a stick to clip the first bolt, then climb (crux) directly up to it. Move up and left delicately to next bolt (a fall before clipping this results in a ground fall), then continue up broken flakes to cleaner friction slabs above and double bolts. Some parties belay here Continue up smooth slab to horizontal break, step up over this to bolt belay.(#1 Friend in break at your feet).
30m Straight up the final short crack as for 'Snakeskin Flake', then continue up to belay at trees.
First Ascent: Mark Colyvan & Paul Colyvan, Aug 1986
