A great climb up the right hand side of the face, but sees little traffic. Start up the back of the boulder as for Dweezil logic and move to the left of the shelf. Belay here from the double bolts, to reduce rope drag. Climb left and out into the steep slabby face and through the bulge.

A boulder problem start through the lower roof and into the face (crux). Another hard move before reaching easier climbing to the top.

FA: Richard Bull

Bouldery start through the scoop. Then easy climbing to the top.( I believe the original name was Lunar Leper, because when Wayne cleaned it bits kept falling off)

FA: Wayne Rohrs

Climb is located to the left of the large scoop/cave at the base of the boulder. Start left of the bolts. Traverse right to the first bolt then straight up.

FA: Debbie Hinde

Left of Moon Base Alpha, Hard fingery start, easier middle, and exciting finish.

To the left of 'Lazy Ass Aucklanders!', on the same face. Grade provisional until more information gathered.
