A fun wandering line on crimps and friction.
A little lichen covered in parts, but it doesn't take away from the climb. A few cruxes but no one stopper move.
Wicked fun and highly recommended to those who enjoy long, techy, footy, less-than-vertical climbing.
The book says you need 2 ropes to lower, but a 60m rope will just make it (tie a knot in the other end of the rope).


The far right route highest up in the gully.


9 bolts to anchor at a sloping stance.

Very nice route, even to someone like me who usually dislike slabs! :) 2.5 stars from me. Quite well protected if memory serves.
