"Circular Semantics" starts on the ledge, midway up the wall, on the west face of Rotary Park. It climbs past five bolts up the steep overhanging, orange and blue striped wall. It is best to either scramble up to the ledge via easy climbing, or climb one of the easier routes to a two bolt belay at the start of the route. It is better to belay from the ledge. Belaying from the ground causes many rope drag issues. The climbing is steep, powerful, and short. The anchor is equipped with rappel rings for an easy descent.
