200 metres, grade 15, fun climbing. Finding the start is the crux to this awesome fun climb. A couple of hundred metres past Jezebel cracked pillar and where the track takes a noticable turn to the left you need to turn right and contour up towards a scooped overhang in the main wall. when at the base of that scooped overhang take the easy line to the right, after one pitch you`ll need to trend left and make your way the easiest line. If you go too far left you`ll get in to difficult territory so come back right. If you go too far to the right then you will encounter a lot of shrubbery on terraces, obviously you`ll need to come back to the left. If you are on track then you will encounter a corner at about two thirds height. This is supposed to be the crux but Grant and I found this to be the funnest part of the climb. From the belay ledge above the corner take any line you choose to the top they are all good.

Simulclimbed the whole route with Grant Edser in about 2.5 hours with lotsa time out mid route for pics. Crux, nah, it was all good. We expected to find a crux at 2/3rd height from what we were told but after we climbed past it we recognised it and both laughed at that being called a crux. So we down climbed it and took a bunch of pics with us trying to make it look hard.
