This is the first formation on the left as you descend the gully. There are a number of good routes here with the red wall routes generally being harder and more intimidating. The first pitches of many of the red wall routes are three or four stars and can be climbed then lowered off with a 70M rope.
Drop down the gully as described in the Reef of Rocks "Getting There" section.

Like with all routes I've done at the Reef, I wouldn't have objected to another bolt. The person that goes up there with the drill can put it 10 feet above the last bolt on the final pitch.We tried to do the direct start, then we (meaning I) bailed, out to the muddy dihedral on the left.
