Description:

Climb and scramble up the left side of the lower metro slab aiming for a "chossy" looking pillar of rock below the left arete. Making your way up the pillar on the left side to a stance under the left arete. Pull around onto the face and head up and slightly right on the main face to the anchors --------------------------------------------------------------------- According to recent conversations with SA Park Police, it is OK to climb here and access the wall via the creek bed. Long term access once it becomes an official greenway is still TBD. SO, be quiet, courteous, pick up any trash you see etc. No fires, overnight stays etc. Be a GOOD steward so access can continue.

4 out of 5 stars Not sure if this was the route I was on

As the header says... I got on what I think might have been this one - just left on honeycomb. TR'd because my partner and I weren't sure on bolt placements (seemed ok, but with short routes one of the bolts seemed a bit high for my height/clip stance - decking potential). Traversed left from Honeycomb's anchors to clip the next set for TR. Kinda left facing arete and move onto the face. There is this right facing side-pull/undercling feature. Onsighted it on TR, didn't feel 11d, maybe 11b, c at the most. Like the pockets.

4 out of 5 stars better than it looks

The bouldery start to the vegetated ledge is a challenge, but the best part is the overhanging dihedral at the top.
