After the first 12ft of Singed walk left up hill to the steep slab. I began at the off width bulge. Another start to it is left of this and is probably slightly more difficult and dirtier. The start I did was thought provoking. Once I figured it out it became easily done to access the slab. Stay in the center of slab until there is a good rest spot on the left edge of the slab. From here on up you'll come to a decent protection crack midway up. After that 10ft up to a birch tree to sling. A few feet more and that is that. Very good pockets for the fingers and sharp rock nubs for the feet. Free soloed.
Above the beginning slab to Singed and then up hill left. Walking to the base of this climb is doable by walking towards Waimai and then diagonally approaching right beyond the moss covered slabs. Decsent is doable by walking down the left side of this slab section. Rappelling is not necessary and there is a fourth class descent also (looking down) on the left side of the start to Singed.
One medium trad gear placement and a couple of slings.
