Grade Route

If you think you've got what it takes then climb the left arete to the very top. Techincal and high!

Established as a high ball boulder problem by Adelaide's own GC. Climb the central off-width crack to the top. Established with a route grade, you can either trad climb it or high ball boulder it at V1/2.

Stand start using LH crack and RH crack, work up the arete to the top crack, using the pointed slab, slip around "rocket" to top out using Backside of Nowhere route.

Using the crack (just off the edge - not the main crack) ascent to the top. The stone stuck in the crack seems well stuck, but be cautious.

Sit start with matched hands on side pull, work up the arête to the crack on the right side follow crack up to top out.
