Grade Route

Pad up the countersunk slab to the large crack. Climb this and step around on to the north side of the ridge to belay. There is now a double bolt anchor for instructional purposes at the top of the slab.

Quite a wandering climb

  1. (21m) Climb the large corner to the ledge in the middle of the face and the Black Back Cleft belay.

  2. (23m) Up and back left across the slab to the ridge, and on to the summit.

Start two metres right of the corner up a good crack to the big ledge. Can be climbed as an alternate first pitch to Black Back Cleft, or you can continue on up the second pitch of that route to make one long 40 metre pitch.

Belay anchors at the top and bottom were replaced with 110mm titanium glue-in bolts in March 2018. The anchor at the top of Pitch 1 was untouched.

  1. (15, 20m) Climb the face past two bolts to the big ledge. The crux is at the second bolt.

  2. (13, 20m) Up the slab past three more bolts to the top of the Pinnacle.

  1. (14, 25m) From the beach, climb the short steep wall on to the slab. Now follow the right-hand edge of the face to belay at the ledge.

  2. (14, 20m) Directly up the ridge to the top. The large flake is loose to touch: be careful!
