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.
