From the Platform, climb into the back of the couloir and follow bolts left and out onto the face, then continue straight up. Airy and exciting, BIG cobbles.


Rap or lower from Chain anchors back to the Platform. A bit of trickery is required to move back across the couloir and onto the Platform.

There's some confusion here. This route is actually the far left one route. It has an airy traverse past a couple bolts, to a crux, and then climbs straight up. Nine bolts to chains. Extending the belay bolt and the next two bolts after that will make your life much easier.
To clean, my partner clipped into the rope, I re-directed the lowering rope through the belay bolt and she lowered right back to the platform without too much shenanigans.
