Start in the notch at lowest point of buttress, climbing up a corner and out onto the face. Continue up and through some steep moves to near the ridgeline and on excellent rock towards the top. Easy descent towards Steeple peak. Protection and rock quality similar to Weta Prowl. 125 m height gain, Grade 14/15.

The route is on the lower tier of the SW face of Peak 2200m, starting at around 1500 metres. Three pitches starting immediately to the left of The Grrr Room. Cimb left, then right to join The Grrr Room on the final pitch, then onto upper snowfield. Descent down gully to right (marked in blue), may require multiple abseils depending on snow conditions.
