Description 

Crux is fifth pitch, arguably between either the second and third bolts, or the third and fourth bolts. There is nowhere to place pro on this pitch.

Location 

From the boulders where you park, bushwhack 2 miles along the relatively horizontal trail past culverts and river beds. The giant pipe indicating where to turn into the forest is VERY obvious (i.e. there are cairns on top of and next to the pipe). Many other pipes will be seen before the cairned pipe.
Walk very steeply uphill through the forest, ultimately heading up and the right when you are at the base of buttress.

We rapped down with 1 x70m and 1 x60m rope.

Consider bringing a machete to whack through the thorn bushes growing onto this seldomly used trail.

Protection 

There are 1-4 bolts per pitch. Bolted anchors.
Bring a single set of cams, 0.1-1"

If I remember right, you use the cams on the 4th pitch. And there might have been a placement on the 1st.

Really a great climb. The crux pitch has some well spaced bolts and stiff slab moves, very exciting. Its a shame the road has deteriorated making the hike in a bit tedious.

By road, Dirk, do you mean trail? From my recent experience, there wasn't much opportunity to drive in further on the road. It's the trail that has deteriorated.

The trail in was in good shape in 2015, quite easy to follow.
