Scramble to the base of the obvious triangular slab w/ the capping block furthest left. A bit right of center, step out from behind the Manuka tree to find the first bolt. Pretty much self explanatory from there. Pitch 1 is 25m, and grade 14 at most. Pitch 2 is only 15m, but has some gripping moves to the last bolt if grade 15/16 is your limit.

Descent Options:

rap off sling, then rings

3 out of 5 stars Easy slab

Needs a bit of a brush to clear off some of the lichen, but otherwise just downright good-ol' fun climbing.
