Super classic, one of the best Trad climbs in the North Island.
Pitch 1 (17/5.9) 30m
Climb up easier ground to the obvious cave. Trad Belay in cave
Pitch 2 (18/5.10a) 30m
Embrace the exposure as you climb out of the bottomless chimney to the end of the cave roof. From here traverse along a system of ledges until you reach a break/weakness in the roof. Construct a trad anchor here.
Pitch 3 (22/5.11a) 20m
Climb through the break in the roof (crux) until you get past the overhang. Easier ground to top. The crux can be aided to make the route a 19/A0 (5.10b/A0)
Middle of the Odyssey wall
Trad. Take plenty of Cams
