Clip a bolt and mantle onto a block three metres right of Private Popokov, then step right and on to ledge past another bolt and up. Very balancy. Joe Arts '98

Very short crack just right of Marshal Zhukov.
The Sentinel 10

This climb takes a direct line on the blocky arete. Easy start among bushes, followed by a steeper bit to break through on to the final arete.
Fusillade 13
0
Short but steep crack about four metres right. From the crack tend slightly left, or climb the crack directly for a harder variation.

Lifestyle Asset was destroyed in the 22 February 2011 Christchurch earthquake. Sharp stepped arete on the left of the wall, with CDs at the start and two bolts. Excellent climbing with spaced holds, mainly on the right wall.
