A good start up the technical wall and ramp has some very hard moves. Above, the route loses its way amongst some big ledges and the final section is very escapable. Alternately, finish up Golden Gate or traverse right to the tree and abseil off.

This Stoney classic really ought to be commented on. Admittedley the top third of the route is not of the quality of the bottom two, but after the polished, (slightly bold?) tricky start, the difficult pull onto the ramp, steep wall and hard thin crack above - all with good gear - make this a fine outing.

Awesome Route. A full pitch of pump, worth at least 2 stars.
