A striking line that climbs the top half of a large wall, with excellent views and exposure. 70m of quality crack climbing with a bolt protected chossy start and easy finish. The climb faces south. Escape may be possible by traversing right (facing In) along the shale ledge then contouring around the point and back to pick up the lower part of the walking trail, but this has not been attempted and not recommended.
Locate 2 bolts at head height in rock outcrop to your right (facing out) of small clear area. 33m rap to ledge with another 2 bolts, 50m rap to shale ledge and 2 belay bolts near old chain, Rope just reaches. You can rap in using a doubled single 60m rope with a lot of jiggery pokery.
