This is the Tairua classic! Accessible from lover's ledge.
Climb easy honeycombed rock to the 2nd bolt, then power through the crux which consists of a series of good underclings with long reaches to small slopey edges. The rest of the route is delightful stemming up the steep corner to the large chickenhead visible from below.
Can be done as one long pitch or two short pitches at 21/18. Must be rapped in 2 sections due to steepness.
