Like driving a motorbike over Arthur's Pass: lots of cruising with some scary bits in between. Starts on the little podium on the very left of the wall and remember to ignore TomTom's bolts just to the right and continue straight up to a desperate finish.

Someone forgot to tell these boys they're not in The Cave anymore. A fine link up nonetheless encompassing the more exciting parts of both routes. Starts up the first 3 bolts of The Irony then meanders left to finish up High Contrast.

Climb the clean crème brûlée through some reachy moves to the crack where the climbing mellows. For extra fun stay on the pillar right of the crack. Extending the last runner will help with rope drag if top roping.

Friendly-as for those looking to push their White Wall experience. Use the first 2 bolts of The Irony (sling the 2nd) before heading off right for some absolutely elegant climbing. Join back up with Irony after pulling over the last bulge.

The original route of the White Wall and an absolute classic. Climbs really well as one 30m pitch if you've got the stamina.

 The handholds don't get much better than is … good thing because it's pretty rumpy pumpy

  The climbing mellows, but the fun doesn't. Weave your way up the line of bolts to a hidden belay on a small ledge to the right.

The following climb is 30m back down the trail on a white wall with broken off flowstone lower down and a very loose looking pillar to its left. The cleaning effort on this climb gives the phrase carved out of stone a whole new meaning. Props to Christine Borland for putting in her time.

  Short little pitch to get the ball rolling, climb up the flowstone and veer off left to the belay on a small ledge

  The meat and potatoes pitch, you probably won't have room for dessert after this one, follow the line of bolts consciously trying to avoid bridging on the loose looking rock behind you as much as possible.

Located on the lone pillar literally next to the White Wall track 20m before Thirty One.
