Starts on the ledge. Sustained 5.9 climbing with a slight bulge at top (could be considered the crux).


Starts at the leftmost rap station on top of the ledge, to the right of Stouthearted.


10 bolts, but some take a 1" CD for a slightly run-out section. **NOTE: This route is 35m if you don't rap or downclimb from the ledge.**

New grading is 5.10a - it's gone from 5.10a in the original guide, to 5.9, and now back to 5.10a. A great climb to finish a weekend on - looking South over the wineries to the lake, thinking about a swim and a cold bevvie. Best done with a top belay to share it with your partner. Then you can rap or walk off (North).

Only PG13 if you don't sink a cam at mid-height.
