Climb the pumpy arete past two bolts, then move left at the third bolt to the belay.

Good moves up a groove, then a rock-over on positive holds to top out.

A line of rusty old carrot bolts – an old aid route – shows the way. Though-provoking moves in the open groove.

Link-up madness. Start up the steep wall on the left edge of the cave, then traverse right across the leaning wall to a good rest in the groove. Swing out to join Shape Shifters at its third bolt.

Superb sculpted flakes and crack right of the cave make for great climbing. Join Space Doubt for the last two bolts, avoiding the roof.

Was once the steepest route in Wellington! Climb the awesome left side of the prow on finger jugs and tufa-like columns.

Start as for Let Me Up but stay on the left side of the arete. Climb through the bulge on underclings to the 3rd bolt on Shape Shifters. Continue up and left through another bulge to the Reptilian Groove anchor.
