Thin crack and wall to bollard
Pitch 2:27m - (consensus from 0 ascents; FA grade: -)
Overhang on small nose and up to ledge.
Pitch 3:13m 16 (consensus from 0 ascents; FA grade: 16)
Crux. Look for cairn halfway along shale ledge below very impressive orange wall. Very steep corner crack to lip, corner to cave belay.
Pitch 4:20m 16 (consensus from 0 ascents; FA grade: 16)
Superb. Corner crack to ramp, along right and up crack to top. Tree belay. Walk up the hill for 50m to small cliffline - walk right under this for 100m to tourist lookout. Scramble up to it via rocky gully under bridge.
