The long rib right of the groove is a fine pitch, quite high in the grade. There is a poor stance at 20m and a steep finish up the groove. The ground is 32m away.

Nice route, delicate slab then steep moves at the top.

some of the bolts don't look that secure - they twist and have cracked cement! Otherwise a nice climb!

A good route, but in need of re-bolting.

Nice route and gets harder near the top in the groove.

The stance is probably 14m from the top not the bottom of the route! Spaced bolts on first slabby pitch mean good head required, then on the top part, its well bolted but far harder in the steep groove above. Bomber rock 1 placement available.

Nice route and I guess some work was done on the bolts because they all looked fine now. However, watch where you stand as a belayer. If you stay on the lower ground, right from the tree, a 70 m rope will be just a little bit too short. The route is 32 m but that's when you start in the hollow of the rock, in front of the tree (which is about 5 m higher up and right next to the first bolt.
