Four pitches: 19, 23, 24, 24. Originally a mixed aid line, A4.
Up the wall passing some bolts to a small roof. Belay 5m above.
Head up and left from anchor clipping a couple of old bent pitons then straight up for several metres on minimal gear to a committing 4m traverse right. Head straight up to easier climbing, bomber rock and good times. Clip a couple more old pitons before belaying at a suspect flake with sardine can wedged in behind. An eerie pitch.
Head straight up awkward corner continuing up an awesome layback section as it heads off right.

Murray Judge, Hugh Logan, Feb 1984.
Paul Rogers and Andy Teasdale freed the first two pitches in 1990, added extra bolts in the crux sections. Jonathon Clearwater and Derek Thatcher freed the entire route in Jan 2005 rapping back down the route on descent.
