15m. Start below the large tree, 5m left of the arete. Climb cracks to a step right near the top. A couple of thin moves gain the top. Traversing right to the arete before finishing reduces the grade to E1 5a.

Gave this a good clean. Poor gear in loose positions. Felt a bit short to nail the topout sloper Down climbed and took the E1 exit fairly comfortably - felt good. . Could probably have made the E2 but bottle crashed.

After successfully soloing Nijinski is the Hunter i thought this must go a little easier, good route but pretty dirty due to lack of traffic i guess. Very bold finish but either than that pleasant climbing.

Spicy at the top, and thin on gear, rest is a path.

Didn't top out, last couple of moves took a while to figure out but I'm confident I can get it next time.

All about the top out . . .
rcammack - Lead RP - 18/Jun/10 with Liyen Nhuyen

toping out is harder if you're short-ish. apart from that easy but scary climbing

I'm sure there used to be some cheeky gear at the top of this...

Rhys Black - 2nd O/S - 24/Apr/10 with Phil Emerson, Ginger McGrath

last moves at top pretty scary as I hadnt brought the right sized cam and the flake for last micro wire flexed rather worryingly when I placed it!
Ginger McGrath - Lead O/S - 24/Apr/10 with Rhys Black, phil emerson

Chose the E1 option of moving right to the arete

Top rope, would say only VS apart from what would be the last move on poor gear. I just need more balls
