Grade Route

A short sport climb that needs cleaning. Not clear where the route goes at the second bolt, you can either traverse back left from the ledge, or skip the bolt going straight up the slab.

Set: Sean Grobler & Bernard Moulins

Long sport route traversing left. Take care as some of the bolts are on loose rock.

Set: Sean Grobler & Eduardt Ruhling

Fun slabby route that finishes under the tree.

Set: Sean Grobler & Bernard Moulins

Go up cracks to small platform. Continue straight up crack/chimney over loose flakes (crux) to where chimney gets larger. Up chimney/face left, until you can cut right over chimney to tree anchor. No bolts needed.

FA: Max Weiner & sean grobler

Climb up thin crack over blocks on to a small platform with a wider crack. Ascend this crack direct all the way to platform, topping out from the right side and then moving left. Tree belay or sling block at the back of the platform.
