Classic, must-do multipitch climb. Try it by moonlight for a unique experience.

Pitch 1: 5, ~10m (tree - listed as "Tarzan" in the guidebook)
Pitch 2: 6a, ~15m (traverse - dicey exposed aid on slings, better to protect)
Pitch 3: 6a+, 20m (listed as "first pitch" in Wee's guidebook)
Pitch 4: 6b, 22m
Pitch 5: 6b+, 25m (fantastic exposed crux as the holds on the wall run out 80m off the deck - be open to all possibilities!)
Pitch 6: 6b, 22m
(Pitch 7: 6a, 8m pointless horrible-looking traverse pitch that nobody ever does)

Be sure to finish your climb in the morning before the sun hits. With single ropes, rappel down the route to the start of Pitch 3, then one final rappel that barely makes it onto the roof of Freedom Bar.

Night ascent. Absolutely fantastic, the route just keeps on giving. Amazing exposure on the crux pitch. Abseiling into freedom bar is also handy for a quick beer

Dawn start, led all pitches. Quality route with a surprise crux lower than expected. Last 2 pitches a joy. J-Force dogged the second, but was fast enough to be down by breakfast. Abseil off the right hand line, the left is old.

The crux pitch (#3, F6b+) is possibly my favourite pitch on Ton Sai. Brilliant wall climbing.

As everyone says, a lovely, easy, and atmospheric climb. 5 fantastic pitches of varied climbing from F6a to F6b+.
