The best route on this wall, and one of the best at the grade at Nowra. Long and pumpy. Off belay ledge and up unlikely white face on pockets and small flakes. Swing through bulge and pump to the top.

Ethic: inherited from Illawarra

Lots of bolts in this region. Most development has been done after the 1980s.
