Around the corner 5m to left of Carless Days is a curving crack line with a number of blocks at the top. Easy climbing up the curved crack is followed by a difficult move into the book case alcove. Climb up and over the blocks above to a SBC belay. (Pro CD, W)

Two metres to the left of Millennium Ways. Start up the prominent hand crack in the small left facing corner then follow the crack through the blocky ground above till it narrows to RP size just before the top. A committing move onto the left ledge is followed by another committing move across right to the belay ledge. A sling round the small tree at the top is a crucial runner. Belay off trees, abseil descent. (Pro: CD, W, RP’s) There are 2 bolts of unknown origin on the arete to the left of Carless Days.

Just off the main track 10 m down stream from the point the track meets the pipe line. Climb the right tending line of bolts through a series of corners, grooves aretes and cracks. A very nice, technical climber, one of the better 20’s around.

10m to the right of Synergy. Scramble up onto the top of the pinnacle just to the right of the hanging Totara tree. Sling the tree then climb the shallow groove and mantel onto the large ledge above. Move left then up the small RP size crack, mantel onto the sloping ledge above then move left again into the thin crack. Climb the crack (crux) then continue up through the roofs above, big holds and good gear. Move right at top then back left and belay off the pine tree with chain sling. (Pro:CD, W, RP’s)
