Start roughly in the middle of the wall below a damp gully which dominates the upper central part of the face. Solo slabs for about 650 metres; at the first steep wall climb just to the right of the central gully for about 550 metres then ascend the final 100 metres or so to the top.
The climb was the second half of a film where the party rafted and kayaked down the Hollyford then climbed the Kaipo Wall. The total climb, including filming, took eight to nine hours. The party spent a week in a snow-cave on the Ngapunatoru Plateau after being caught in a nor-west storm.
