light rack to #1. From DBA near foot of arete, clip first bolt, then sling a horn before stepping right to ascend a steep black wall (or more easily L then R of ramps) to the second bolt. Continue directly up easy arete to DBA below large blocks/spikes.
Fully bolted pitch up and right to groove, up groove, then stepping right to finish on juggy prow.
2p mixed pro route, offering the cruisiest climbing and best views in Lovers Landing. Beware wet feet or worse when the swell is up. Walk across a tussock rib to the top anchor, or alternately rig rap/safety line from a DBA on the wall uphill.
