Description:

Magnificent. Start R of East Face Route, at the lowest point of the face, under prominent pinnacle. Easy slabs lead up 60m to a prominent pinnacle best descended to from the south.

  1. 24m Climb onto the "bridge" between the pinnacle and the face via a short wall R.H. corner south of the pinnacle - vicious fight with scrub at top. N.B. This pitch may be avoided by a long traverse along a scrubby ledge, higher up from the left.

  2. 36m Most novel! From top of pinnacle, carefully bridge the 2m gap to face short wall, then a long delicate, exposed traverse to the right to a large broken boulder.

  3. 30m Upwards.

  4. 30m Right, then up through scrub.

  5. 30m General scrub-bash, or else rock to the left.

  6. 30m Magnificent rock wall to right of L.H. corner system. (See direct finish)

  7. 9m Traverse right and up delicately, to stance.

  8. 30m Traverse right, back up left to airy belay beneath overhang.

  9. 30m Cunningly avoid overhang by rightward traverse above corner. Easier to top.

The topo may be incorrect. Please update it when you climb it. Take a better picture too, if you can...
