From the entry between 92/94 North Rocks Road, enter the trail at the wooden gate. Continue straight on until the T-intersection with the water in front of you. Go left and down the rocks, following the trail past the beach at water level, then up. As the track starts to become sandy, it bows around a flat, diagonally striated rock, to the right of this, there is a gum growing out over the ledge. Descend between the sandstone 5-10m to the right of the tree.

The obvious line on the descent wall out over the lake. Get out over the water via convenient undercling, then committingly up face.

FA: Jacob Tarasenko, 2014

The obvious line from the low right start through easy traverse into techy moves, finishing with a committing lunge to the high left top out. Will be killer when it goes. V5?
