A little runout to start but then easy climbing. If you are feeling strong you can finish with a long hard move to pull up level with the anchors (add a couple of grades) or you can just clip the anchors from below.

2RB's to 2RB anchor.

Start: Start 20m down and right (west) of the bottom of the 'Lookout' 'Access' 'Gully' on the rock shelf directly below the lookout and the well brushed streak.

Delicate climbing with a thought provoking crux at mid height.

3RB's to 2RB anchor.

Climb the crack right of 'Blister In The Sun' and finish at the anchors of 'Something For Kate'.
