P1. Pick your way through the stovepipes on the left with large stems out to the right, through vegetation, until you find yourself at the base of an offwidth. Squeeze yourself inside and reach around to find a good rail while you squirm your way up. Notice the arm-chopping detached flake slanting precariously across the path of least resistance as you gingerly make your way by. A few juggy moves deposit you at an ugly gully with opportunities to belay. You may be ready for a break by now, I was. It's easy to slot a few boulders here, 50m. If you can convince your second to send that flake flying, please do.
P2. Find your way through the hobbled mess of boulders, noting some interesting overhanging climbing along the way. The last move is a jump across a chasm with a good rail on the right. Scramble up to the base of Wolf's Tooth, 20m.
