Description

Best climbed as a 5 pitch link up (access via "Horizon" and finish up the last 1.5 pitches of Halestone). The direct finish is not recommended as the final pitch is 90% vegetation scrambling through rare native plants that is a) not at all fun b) if too many people do this it will kill these endangered native shrubs.

P1 (17) - 18m
Climb "Horizon" which can be access via the base of Buddah Wall. A stunning rising traverse line. Stop at the first set of anchors.

P2 (15) -12m
A traverse/link/access pitch. Scramble right (ignoring the first set of anchors you see below you). Keep traversing along a thin ledge for another 5m. From here traverse right/up a little further to a large ledge with anchors. Don't traverse right/down or you will end up at the anchors for "Off the edge".

P3 (16) - 20m
Follow the bolts up the face. Interesting features and exposed setting for the grade.

P4 (15) - 15m
Head left to join P3 of Halestone. Continue up the arete to the Halestone anchors.

P5(15) - 30m
Finish as per Halestone final pitch.

The pitch directly above P3 may not look that bad, and can be climbed, however the pitch above that is the totally not fun/environmentally destructive vegetated gardeneering pitch that you want to avoid.
