About 50m before the pinnacle is a short cliff with some excellent rock, which contains the first five routes. Near the left end is a narrow left-facing corner leading to bulge with crack. The first route is two metres right of this.

To the right, the zigzag crack on the north face of the Pinnacle. Originally started by the bush at one-third height. Otherwise, start slightly to the right and climb a vague rib with crack, stepping up to gain the crack.

Above & R of the pinnacle on the main cliff is an obvious S crack. The steep corner section is excellent, as is the gear for the hard moves

The next crackline R, starting at the butress toe & climbing a rib to gain the crack. Steep finish on goods holds.
