P1: 26 30m - Technical black wall with some powerful moves. Out of character from the rest of the route. All bolts
P2: 25 25m - Fishing tales - up face to crack and through overlap. Hard technical climbing up rightwards traverse. Bolts and small to medium gear.
P3: 24 25m - Seven gills - burly through overlap and then very enjoyable face climbing on great holds. Single rack and bolts
P4: 28 8m - Snickers Roof - crux boulder leads to steep pulls on good holds. Bolted to A0. At the end place a cam up in the crack to the left to protect the second into the belay. 1x 0.75 ,1 and bolts
P5: 25 30m - "5.9 pitch"- up hand/finger crack to steep, very exciting pulling over the bulge. Head back left on moderate ground to belay on comfy ledge. Take all the gear, some bolts
P6: 27 20m - Up and right on good holds. Pitch steepens to an outrageous crux (same last 10m as Freediver). Wave to the spectators. (Direct finish has not been freed.) all bolts
Short pitch to top of wall. 2 bolts
Starts at a black fixed line at sea level. Follow this is a single ring where the route starts. The first pitch suffers from seepage early in the morning. Best to climb and fix this in the afternoon and climb the rest the next day or rap in from the track. Single rack to #2 with doubles in 0.3-0.5. Small to medium wires only. Handy to have a tag line and haul a small pack. Too hard to climb with a pack on for most.
