Track 5 leads to three walls:

The Fortress
Passion Slab
Little Lost Wall

Getting There 

Enter Payne's and walk past all kinds of things (i.e. all the previous tracks), you're getting close once you hop the fence at the gate past a bunch of paddocks. About 10 meters from the gate will be the marker for Track 5 on your left.

Main Trail passes the Fortress

Entering the Fortress Area, head towards a lovely wall of slab which is about 20 meters past the Fortress Area

Main Trail ends at the Little Lost Wall

  • **Little Lost Wall has a Left side and a Right Side...the trail is pretty much the deliniating spot. Hence, turning left at the end of the trail gets you to the Little Lost Wall (left) and conversely with going right at the end of the trail.

Climbing Season

For the South Island area.

Start tends to the left...shares the same starting line as 'Indecision' then straight up.Slabtastic! Fancy footwork and smearing is required for this seemingly low grade. Crux is passing the second bolt...convincing yourself to leave the heafty ledge. You can't see a fourth bolt because there isn't one, it's a bit run out.don't forget to take a look around when you reach the took me three sends to actually take in the views....[more]   Browse More Classics in International

It's also easiest to take Track 5 to access the Wall of Thugs (1080 and the Letter G, ect..) Head right, past the Little Lost Wall and up the gully, to the big platform that you start all of the roof climbs.
