From a ledge part way along State of the Nation,
The System Works
Excellent winter route, Two pitches of sustained M5 climbing, followed by 3 more pitches to easier ground. Head up 50m to the ledge and bolted belay. Then bridge up the steep overhanging corner to belay at a ledge higher up. Up the face and wide crack M3, followed by and M4 pitch then easy ground to the top of the Telecom Tower. An excellent route for those wanting to climb a solid M5.
