In fine weather the afternoon breeze blows the waterfall across the first two pitches so it’s best to get onto this early. Take a rack.
Begins at an overhanging corner beneath steep rock in the bush right of the waterfall. Up this to bushy left-trending ramp past bolt then up clean wall on gear and a bolt to ledge under roof.

take cams to 3. first pitch feels harder than 18, last pitch easier than 23? Feels the same difficulty as P2. P2 could possibly also be slightly harder now after a key small flake broke as my second climbed it.
