2 bolts
 1) 10m. Scramble up to the ledge on the NE side of the Moai.
2) 20m. Climb the corner onto the pedestal then up to the bolt. From the bolt move right 1m then up via a flake. Trend rightward to another bolt then straight up. Use the anchors of Ancient Astronaught to belay/rappel (a single 50m rope doubled just makes it down). Take a small selection of small to mid-sized SLCDs.
