110m, 4 pitches. The Candlestick dwarfs the totem pole. From the end of the Point Huay track, head down to the left (scrambling) to two U bolts at the top of the 60m abseil shared by both the candlestick and the totem pole. A 55m rope will see you to the ground (a ledge, just above the sea). It is equiped with to fixed hangers. Facing out to the water, head left and straight across, you might be able to see a fixed hanger across the water just above a small ledge at the base of a corner. Once across climb the obvious corner above (18) - 25m. The first ledge is obvious and with good wires. Another 25m pitch (18) will see you to a looser larger ledge. Third pitch is wider and longer (30m). At the top of the third pitch there is a short narrow ridge which finishes at two U bolts. These bolts are used for the tyrollean back to the mainland. The fourth pitch (10m left of the bolts) is around 16 and finishes at two fixed hangers, the abseil point from the top.
