15m. Start just left of "TACK" painted on the rock. Up a groove to an obvious hold the up the small slab to easier climbing.

****NOTE**** A large chunk of this has fallen down at about 2-3m height as of 19/04/2011. Its changed the route significantly and looks pretty unstable.

Very little pro low down one good bit in crack at bulge felt harder than HVS potential for ground fall early on.

Bottom part poorly protected and needs care due to poor rock quality. Crux well protected but, although technically not that hard, quite tricky to onsight.

Loved it :D not sure how much less protected it is now with recent rock fall but still worth a lead.

Now reasonably clean following the rockfall. Crux seemed no harder, but the route is more sustained, less well protected and on poorer rock than before. High in the grade, maybe just E1.

Gear is rubbish! Placed cam before committing to crux bulge and weighted it to test it. Ripped straight out (belayer fell over; luckily hand holds were good so I didnt come off). Moved out right to a ledge for a rest after that as had no decent gear in. Went back out and placed an ok nut then went up the crux. No gear above crux really either until ledge before headwall. Doesnt deserve a star.
