Start 1m (3 feet) left of Corner Crack. Climb directly up the center of the face. A bolt 4m (12 feet) up provides only psychological protection for the crux moves. Rated two stars in the 'Climbing on the Eardley Escarpment' by Yann Troutet.

Descent Options:

Gulley to the left, or rappel off rings at the top.

5 out of 5 stars I'm glad its mixed and not fully bolted

This is a commiting route with good protection, and is definitely well-worth the hike in. The lone bolt protects the tricky crux. The crux is the next 6 feet of very flat face climbing after the bolt which to me felt like hard 5.9. After the crux, you meet a flake which takes good gear. I placed a #12 stopper and a #0.75 camalot as backup. Rap anchors are at the top.
