30 metres right of the embayment, and about 10 before the end of the ledge, is a deep black narrow chimneyish groove. Climb the groove and exit right to the first bolt. Continue up past the next bolt (watch for the hidden cam slot above and left of the 1st bolt) to the ledge. Clip the last bolt off the ledge, and head up easy ground to the rings.

3 out of 5 stars FFA

Finally got around to doing the redpoint. Wind picked up to almost gale force for the last few metres, made me feel lighter. Fun, long, route, with surprisingly good gear, especially with some micros and a #4BD cam.
