Approach

From corner of Blaxland and Terrace Roads in West Killara, walk down firetrail (towards the Big Pump), after about 50m take the obvious track on your left. Walk about 200-300m, through caves and under a waterfall, and then a rather inauspicious boulder sits in the middle of the track.

From the arete traverse right finishing up Bog On Up.

About half way between the arete and Bog On Up is a faint feature around head height with two slopes on either side. Grab the slopes and make a series of desperate slaps to the right finishing up Bog On Up.

Mantle the good holds

Start on the lowest holds and pop for the small edges then up over left. There used to be a big edge, but it has been smashed off so this is now probably harder than V3.

Sit start and a long reach. The arete and the big edge half way up on its left are off.

Right of arete, starting very low. 'Arete' is off.
