Keep walking to the centre of Cutting Crag and abseil from the ringbolts in the obvious notch immediately opposite Babewatch –
Outrageous! The star is for the atmosphere. Rap 45m to the grassy ramp, then climb back out on progressively steeper rock, following many bolts. A little natural gear (mid CD?) is optional near the start of the second pitch. An abseiler, lured by the shiny new ring bolts, fell and broke his back trying to negotiate the rubble between the starting ledge and the beach (his stranded partner was rescued by the Waitati Volunteer Fire Service engine ladder! It must have been low tide).
