At top find fixed line attached to belay and walk off to the halfway house terrace ledge or simply rap the route. FFA Phil Box and Cam Fairbairn 16/7/2004. This route goes up through the steep orange scoop of rock on the south east corner of Tibro. You get a great view of the route through a gap in the trees from the carpark.

5 out of 5 stars One of the BEST ever!

Such a wonderful climb this one! I managed to redpoint the third pitch of this on my second try. Woo! Not too long after the boys put it up. Awesome exposure! Bring your game face and lots of endurance!
