Grade Route

Climbs in the central part of the cliff (other than multi-pitch routes which start from the bottom) are usually accessed by abseiling down the Stazewski-Killip ramp ( tongue in cheek Bob?) which is usually refered to as the 'descent ramp'.

Approach by way of the upstream gulley.

Start at left end of main cliff where it is possible to scramble up to a large terrace which leads right. Take the lefthand of the two obvious lines in the middle of the terrace.

  1. 45m Straight up the crack marked by a cairn. At top of crack step up and right onto dished slab.Up this to horizontal break, left and up to base of corner.

  2. 38m Up corner to about 3.5m where it closes down, hand traverse 2m right and up into next line. Up this to top. (crux)

Not the recommended finish to A & U.

  1. 35m (19) From the belay ledge on top of the 1st pitch of 'Angels and Us', head up obvious corner crack (3.5m), Traverse L above orchids for 5m (straight forward but poor pro), to base of vertical off-width crack (large cams). Up this & L onto blocky ledge. At L end of ledge head up vertical closing finger crack into base of fig tree. Sling this & traverse out left until clear of fig before topping out using one of two lines. Tree belay 10m back from cliff edge.
