Start:Start at the base of the mega obvious crack.
Description:One of the all-time classic routes of the region, if not Australia. Fantastic climbing up the searing crack on a stunning wall. Rap anchors at the top of the first pitch.
Pitch 1:22m 18 (consensus from 28 ascents; FA grade: 18)
Blast straight up the crack, jamming through a low crux. Follow the crack left to a rest, then back right to an awkward finish. This pitch is also known as Yorkshire Crack.
Pitch 2:10m 23 (consensus from 7 ascents; FA grade: 23)
A rarely repeated direct finish to the route goes straight over the overhang above the first belay, passing some old carrots en route.
