150m. Left of the main crag. Scrambles up the slabs just to the right of the stream. The initial slab has some balancy moves for 10m or so (and few gear placements), and then the climb eases considerably and is a lovely grade 1 until the top. The tricky start can be avoided by crossing the stream and walking around on the left.

mountainbagger 12 Jul, 2008 Solo O/S Wet day. Quite slippery, so initial slabs (the grade 3 section) were negotiated by non-direct line. Rest is grade one according to the guide book, but you can make it harder by tackling the little steps by various lines. This would be a good scramble on a nicer day, with a very pleasant waterfall at the top.
