Left of the Main Face is a fine wall of great rock with some superb fluting formations - the Assagai Wall. The climbing here is excellent and tends to be more technical and fingery, contrasting nicely with the dominating cracks of the Main Face. The wall gets plenty of sun from midday. It dries quickly and is relatively sheltered. A fine winter and early season venue but poor in hot weather.

15m. The fine narrow wall is started on the rib before moving left to the centre of the face. Above this, things ease.

20m. A girdle of the wall. Usually climbed from left-to-right. Scramble off upwards with care and a rope.

22m. Technical thin face climbing is the preamble to the butch upper crack which is thankfully well protected. A good climb.
