1) 4a, 12m. The easy corner to the large ledge.
2) 5a, 14m. A well-positioned and technically challenging pitch. The upper fluted grooves are stunning.
FA. Chris Eilbeck, Pete Lucas, Bill Lounds, Stew Wilson 1968. A well travelled route that was the first line to take on the challenge of the wall and discover the unusual flutings on its upper wall.

First pitch is just a scramble, but the second pitch is great. Very exposed, quite polished, not very pumpy, but the holds up the flutings are magnificent

Not pumpy or hard at all just one lond-ish reach to a break then cruise to the top!

Better off doing first pitch to sluice or something similar then walking accross to do assagai. First pitch is pointless.

that last comment is true any route to the ledge is better than the current first pitch!
