On the slightly overhanging wall to the right of a chimney are three bolts. The climb has only one hard move, just above the second bolt. Belay on the pohutukawa. There are two further routes that are not fully bolted but deserve a mention as they aren’t described anywhere else. Forty or fifty metres to the right of ‘The Point’ is an easy chimney/gully. Just left of this gully is Dorje Direct.
