 A classic seventies crack climb - the obvious corner with a roof five metres up. Awkward jamming through the roof and up the crack to easier climbing above. Exit right on the ramp to abseil anchors in a large boulder directly above. There is also a direct finish through a small roof and up a shallow crack (19).

!!!!!!!! Climbing this on 31/8/13 I was seconding and yarded on a large plasma screen sized chock which in turn spun and threw me off the climb. Was unable to remove by hand so it is still there and very unstable, behind it sits a bunch of loose dinner plate sized flakes behind it. This crag is closed to November so will most likely be still there, it will need a crow bar to remove FYI.

Hard awkward start for the grade will see you squirming up through the roof into the easy middle section and great climbing up this right-slanting jaggedy crack. Solid pro all the way. This route is worth the bush bash alone.
