Walk along the track towards Long Beach from the car park to the first cluster of mature pines and macros (approx 100 metres). Turn sharp left and drop down into a bushy gully. Follow the pink tags through the bush until the track turns steeply uphill. Up the first fixed rope to a slip beneath the right hand pillar which towers above you. Traverse across the slip and into the bush on the far side until the second rope appears. Head steeply up through the trees to the track which runs along the base of the cliff.

Formerly a prominent hand crack, it, along with the surrounding area, was swept away in a huge rockfall during a storm in 2022.

Straight into the business off the deck, with the crux coming around the 2nd bolt. Move left and around into a fracture line. Up to the layback flakes where the fractured crack above begins to deteriorate. At this point move out left to finish up a finger crack. The top half of this route was severely damaged in a rock fall in 2022 and is currently unclimbable. The top section will be rebolted sometime in the future.

Start up a crack line and up to a small rooflet. Move across right onto the steepening face. A fantastic sequence of holds up the wall to the top of the pillar before moving out left to the belay hidden in a groove.

Up the right edge of the prominent pillar. Some of the holds in the middle section attract sand but persevere and the rewards will come on the vertical top section.

Begin as for 'Immunity', clipping the first bolt on that route before traversing along the narrow ledge and around the arete on to the face of the pillar.. Bridge the corner above and pull over the roof before moving out rightwards along a ledge and up onto the top of a block. Climb the wall right of the crack that splits the headwall and then drift left along a row of edges and up onto the 'Immunity' belay ledge.
