Start:Start up a ripply wall 3 metres right of Last Rites.
Description:Brilliant climb taking the corner systems marking the right side of the great wall right of Tourist Buttress. Genrally well protected but there are some large apparently loose or detached blocks at crucial points.
Pitch 1:24m 12 (consensus from 3 ascents; FA grade: 12)
Up wall for 12 metres then traverse right to corner. Climb corner to block and traverse right to ledge and chain anchor. Contemplate that this ledge used to be occupied by a large tree that people belayed and abseiled from.
Pitch 2:36m 15 (consensus from 2 ascents; FA grade: 15)
Climb the sustained corner, taking care with a large loose block. Continue straight up to belay on a pinnacle. A belay is also possible a few metres lower than this.
Pitch 3:15m 13 (consensus from 2 ascents; FA grade: 13)
Continue up to a ledge and traverse left below the overhang to below a big corner.
Pitch 4:27m 14 (consensus from 2 ascents; FA grade: 14)
Up the corner, moving into the right hand line at about 15 metres. Continue up and make your way over an huge, hopefully jammed block and make an intimidating traveres right to an exposed, small stance. Belay here or move a few metres higher to a better ledge (watch the rope drag though).
Pitch 5:15m 11 (consensus from 2 ascents; FA grade: 11)
From the tiny stance, step right, then up for 5 metres. Traverse left and finish up left groove.
