The obvious line. Mostly a chimney. Starts wide. PLEASE DON'T TOUCH THE BONES IN THE CHIMNEY. THIS IS A SERIOUS ACCESS ISSUE.

4 out of 5 stars third trad lead

My friend said it was easy... while it was quite secure climbing all the way, it was fairly run out!

climbed it in 2 pitches, first pitch about 35m, with 4 placements...

5 out of 5 stars Tibia with the Mexicans

We climbed this route over Larbour Weekend 06. Three of us NZers plus two mexicans who tagged along (five of us in total). We used four pitches with multiple belay stations. The climb itself is pretty daunting with no protection for the first parts. 15m's to first belay station, another 15 up a massive chimney out the gap, then 10m outside and up to the final station. The last pitch is another chimney with two cracks leading up both sides (plently of pro can be placed). We used pro on both sides with two ropes and two belayers (Overkill but we were just enjoying the moment). We used hex's to build the first belay station and some cam's on the second. Safety Rating is an R, the grade is low but the first two pitch's require someone with nuts. On the last day we saw some guy free climb the entire thing with only a rope on his back... respect!
