DescriptionAn easy line up the arete, amazing views and exposure for the grade. Best climbed as a 4 pitch link up by accessing the starting anchors by climbing "Horizon" (17). If you cant climb grade 17, you can abseil in from the top of the buttress for a 3 pitch 15 (not recommended).
P1 (17) - 20m
Climb Horizon (stunning rising traverse line). Stop at the second set of anchors that you find (on a large ledge slightly lower than the traversing line).
P2 (15) - 30m
This is where the climb would start if you abseiled in. Climb the left arete for some steep sections for the grade that are much eaiser than they look.
P3 (15) - 25m.
Continue up the low angle arete. Soak up the views/exposure.
P4 (15) - 30m
Continue up the left arete and through a little bit of vegetation. At the top follow the bolts to the right and mantle between the bushes to get to belay bolts. Recommended you extend your anchor if you are able to reduce rope drag.
Descend by walking off along the walking track
