From the ground climb the slab to the right of the bush filled gully. Pick your way delicately up the wall. Move left at the 6th bolt, up low angle ramp then through steep ground above. Sling tree, then pull up on tree to belay stance.
From the belay step left onto the main cliff and climb up steep bulgey ground to the small roof. Pull through the roof then continue up steep easy ground tending right to the DBC belay.
From the belay, easy steep ground leads up to the groove through the roof. Clip the chain extended bolt, then get established in the groove above (crux). Then with your heart in your mouth climb the groove, clip the bolt at the top then move right. Another technical move gets you onto the ramp above, Climb the ramp tending right to the big party ledge. DBC Belay.
Climb the face to the roof and phallic knob, pull on it and onto the face, out left (A cheap double entre but you will all remember the move). Climb the face to ledge then up step bulgy ground to top. The last move up onto the belay ledge is the crux. Stay left until you can grab the top lip.
