HVS. An older route, easier than most hereabouts. Scramble up the ramp below and right of the main pillar. Belay at a tree.</br>1) 5, 25m. Climb the slab leftwards to a ledge and bolt belay.</br>2) 4, 20m. Follow ledges out right then back onto a pillar.</br>3) 3, 25m. Follow the ramp left to a bay. Belay bolt on the left.</br>4) 4, 20m. Out left into a groove, up to a pinnacle on the left.</br>5) 5, 20m. Climb the groove on the right. At its top either climb up left or go direct (harder) to a cave.</br>6) 5, 15m. Follow the arete on the right and move left to belay.</br>7) 5+, 30m. Climb up right then move leftwards across a ledge. Climb a crack to an arete and follow this to the abseil station.

I note that pitch 7 in the description is graded 5+ so I guess the route grade should be 5+

You can miss out the second and third pitches by going straight up the groove of Talisman giving a more direct and sustained route. Excellent.
