Description 

P1 - 10a - Start a few metres to the left of the lowest point of the wall up a curved, low angle wall that leads to a right-trending ramp. Climb the ramp to avoid a roof in the dark, black rock. Step up over an overlap to a ledge and follow the ledge left to the base of a shallow corner system. Climb up the corner trending left to a few steep moves (10a) and up to the belay ledge.
P2 - 10a - Club from the belay up a short corner, move left into another short corner and pull up onto a ledge. Gain a beautiful crack in the upper wall and finish up this to the top anchor.

Location 

To descend, either scramble up, trending right a bit toward the hiker's lookout and then walk off to the left. Or descend with 2 rappels.

Protection 

all bolts
