The left-facing corner near a Kanuka tree. Bridge and pull through the easy roof, then up and traverse right near the top (don't go between the trees), finishing up The Slot Machine.

The right-facing corner and crack system, fun and solid at the grade.

The long flake/crack with a small roof low down. Move right around the roof and step up the ledges, then balancy but well protected moves onto the face. Continue more easily up the crack to the DBC belay.

FA: Stephen King, 2005

The long open book corner and thin crack. Start up the unprotected slab to gain the corner. Clip the first 2 bolts of Great Scott if you aren't game for that.

The crack immediately left of The Gecko Groove.

FA: Matt Thom, 2005

The right hand crack system 3 meters left of the arete. Save your big gear for the top section. An excellent climb. A recent strange euro abseil-basket thingy is at least an improvement over the old "tree" belay.
