Mainline 17
Presumably the splitter crack just right of the arĂȘte on the south face. Scramble over blocks and move delicately up the slab to reach the crack. Quite tricky jamming to reach the top. FA unknown
Starlight 12
Much further north, on the right side of the wall. Starts at a large dead totara tree. Climb up the tree and move right to finish up a broken line. Pete Tocker, 1978.
Dark Side 15
Just right of Starlight. Climb the chimney between two free-standing blocks, then up to the left of the tree and move left across a slab to the exit jam crack. Lindsay Main, 1978
