Description 

Starts on the ledge. Sustained 5.9 climbing with a slight bulge at top (could be considered the crux).

Location 

Starts at the leftmost rap station on top of the ledge, to the right of Stouthearted.

Protection 

10 bolts, but some take a 1" CD for a slightly run-out section. **NOTE: This route is 35m if you don't rap or downclimb from the ledge.**

New grading is 5.10a - it's gone from 5.10a in the original guide, to 5.9, and now back to 5.10a. A great climb to finish a weekend on - looking South over the wineries to the lake, thinking about a swim and a cold bevvie. Best done with a top belay to share it with your partner. Then you can rap or walk off (North).

Only PG13 if you don't sink a cam at mid-height.
