Tenuite Wall

(19 routes)

Up above the bush on a small platform with a steepish routes. Quite popular and dries quickly after rain. Because it is above the trees there is no shelter from the afternoon sun in summer. A variety of traverses have also been done eg starting at Fat Cats and finishing up Dr Terrific
