Description:© (Ashy)

Very popular. It is a bit easier (22) if you retreat to the flake on the right at the crux. But, this seems like most obvious thing to do, and going direct seems a little contrived. If you want to rip the dodgy flake off then don't go direct otherwise grit your teeth and go direct for a safer experience.

Ethic: inherited from Illawarra

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