Left of the Main Wall 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 Wall. 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.

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

Technical thin crack climbing is the preamble to the well-protected but butch upper crack.

An excellent easier route which makes it a bit of a rarity on limestone. The start is by far and away the most difficult...
