A classic bit of exposure. Was once three stars when you caould hang by one arm from the chicken-head - only worth 1 star now that sombody snapped it off.

Watch the rope length when lowering.

Start: Start by walking up the track to the left of the little grease cave.

Climb the bottomless chimney with the aid of a horizontal fig , joining arette to lower off. Either start direct (unbolted) or scramble up to base on left. Take care of large loose block at first bolt. Quite possibly Nowras finest sport route.
