Features an intimidating roof crack that is easier than it looks. Start as for the Original Route, at the base of a rectangular tower.

  1. 19 (30m)Climb easily to a small ledge (where the ‘’Original Route’’ heads up and right). Continue straight up the face to the left-hand finger crack above the overlap. Follow this to a broad ledge.

  2. 18 (35m) Start in the left of two corners (reddish brown and undercut) and follow a series of vague corners to layback crack (left of a roof, yellowish rock). Follow this to a ledge below the huge roof.

Walk several meters right and scramble up to below the obvious roof crack through the right-hand side of the huge roof.

  1. 22 (20m) Climb straight up to the roof crack. Fight through this and pull around the next roof to a small stance. A #4 Camalot is useful.

  2. 17 (20m) From the stance, pull over a small bulge, follow a narrow corner arete and then straight to the top.

This route has two different starts. One that starts on a chimney that I found harder than a 14 and another classic 14 pitch that starts around 8 meters left of the chimney on an ledge.

Start ~ 5m left of ‘’Molestor’’.

  1. 20 (25m)From a long rectangular block on the floor, pull up onto the face near a large pocket. Move left, and up the face to a vague brown corner (the base of the right side makes a triangular-shaped overlap). Pull through to a rail and up slightly right to the next ledge. Stance at the base of a grey recess.

  2. 18 (40m)Climb the thin crack in the grey recess (tricky), and then the ramp above. Head right and through a wide crack in a narrow roof. Continue straight and then slightly left through a steep section to a ledge.

  3. 17 (10m) A tricky start gains a vague brown corner below the next roof. Move left past a cave-like feature to the next ledge.

  4. 17 (25m) Pull up onto the face ~5m right of a vegetated, vertical crack. Traverse diagonally left to the top of the crack and head straight to the top from here, passing a huge mouth shaped feature.
