Description:© (Ashy)

Good technical climbing with a couple of hard moves and a tricky slab finish. Note that 'The Balrog' and 'Shelob' use the same holds towards the finish. 6RB's to 2RB anchor.

Ethic: inherited from Illawarra

Bolts, some trad. No chipping. A little gluing of key holds has happened on occation. There is a push by local climbers to re-equip old routes in the style of the first ascents.
