Some 50 metres right of the Hubris wall is a gully in an area clear of vegetation. At the back of the gully is an obvious black slab. Start on the right of the slab staying on the cleaner rock and following the available small wire placements up and left to a block/ledge/flake thing. This gets slightly run out but on easy ground. Head further left (double ropes would be useful to avoid rope drag) and up the water gully to gain the large vegetated ledge that splits the cliff at this point. From here it is possible to access the top of other nearby climbs. Head up the grass gully left of the buttress in front of you until it can be regained by swinging up and right. Climb the bulgy blocky buttress to the short final slab. Belay and rappel off double ring bolts shared with the route to the right..
