A Far South favourite. The crux takes a bit of working out, but the rest is steady and all on good rock.

Really nice. Tricky move at middle, with a wee run-out is exciting. I'd say middle to highish 6a, good 2 stars

Great route, exhilerating middle crux means you just have to go for it, the holds are up there!! This crux possibly makes it harder than Ocean Drive (6a+) next door.

A nice contrasting pitch with a great crux move which is easy when you have done it a few times.

Great route, tough side pull at mid-height but the top is great full of jugs

Flashed it on saturday - middle is quite tough. What a great route though - worth 3 stars.

lovely route - my first 6a onsight - loved the jug hauling last third after the technical crux

Excellent well graded route. The crux is below the long run out over the blocks and there are plenty of jugs to be found in this section so do not be put off, it just gives it a little more pukka factor.

Getting greasy, but still worthwhile. Technical crux (sidepull) then huge holds at the top! Quite hard at 6a, and when you've made the crux clip, it's still not all over!
