HVS. A wandering line with good climbing. Start at the lowest point of the wall by a series of small cracks.
1) 5, 25m. Climb the cracks then right to a small arete. Climb this and then head right to a good ledge and thread belay.
2) 5, 40m. Climb the crack on the left and at its top move right to a ledge. Step right past a thread then continue directly before trending right up a slab. Keeping left of the vegetation, climb to a small stance and belay. Descend by a 50m abseil.

loose rock, dirty, vegetated, run out for hvs(given vs by edwards??) how did this pile of crap get a star (2 in 1st guide)

We only did the 1st pitch and abbed off as we ran out of time. But I thought this pitch was excellent with the crux being the traverse right to the belay stance at the top.

Found this to be a good route - though we did the second pitch more directly than shown on the topo to finish at the lower off above Rock Dancer 2 etc.. Well worth 2 stars - G Everitt must have gone the wrong way (?)

I had some difficulty deciding where to move right on the first pitch. Easy to go too far up left. We also did the 2nd pitch more directly to the Rock dancer lower off. Quite nice we thought.

We also finished at the Rock Dancer 2 belay. Actually found the first pitch quite hard for the grade, although that might have been a consequence of too much sport climbing! A good climb but maybe only one star.
