Description:

A fine route with fairly sustained climbing. The route was first top-roped by Colin and Dave Shuttleworth. Start at the bottom of the left-hand corner (facing the rock) adjacent to the scramble down. Climb a short steep ramp to a rail. Move around the corner to the right and pull up to a jug. Traverse back left for approximately three metres using the rail as a foot rail. Pull up and climb slightly right to a peg. Move left and pull up to a small ledge, and continue past another peg and slightly right to gain good but rounded holds. Continue up a shallow recess to the top.

Ethic: inherited from Monteseel

Climbing is allowed as long as no plants are damaged. No bolting is allowed. Most pegs have been cut. No damaging the rock in anyway. There are people living below so no throwing things off the cliff. There are also people living above the cliff so be respectful.
