An intimidating wall, which you're either up for, or you're not. The level of bolting varies from very well equipped to rotten old gear and whatever you can place yourself, so it's worth bringing a small rack unless you're climbing well within your limits. Descent is by abseil from indicated points, if you have to retreat down the route, you will need to leave gear behind. A pair of half ropes works best as the routes do weave around a fair bit, but a single 70m rope will do. Guidebook page 203.
