Description:© (Ashy)

Climb the left hand side of the arête past 3RB's before moving right onto the wall and then up. The rock at the start is average but the main wall is reminiscent of an easier version of 'Vanderholics'.

8RB's to 2RB anchor.

Start: Start 3m right of 'Philosopher's Stone' just left of the arête.

Ethic: inherited from Illawarra

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