A popular route in a good position. Start at the base of a groove with 'PMP' etched on it.
1) 27m. Climb the groove for 4m, move right and climb the arete to a tree (possible belay). Continue slightly to the right up the next groove above a ledge to another tree in a bay.
2) 10m. Traverse right across the slab to belay in a corner left of the nose.
3) 4a, 30m. Step right onto a nose of rock. Climb round the right-hand side of the nose which leads to the base of the upper slab (possible belay). Climb the slab then step right to a ledge. Scramble off above.

The groove with 'PMP' on it is the start of Borchgrevinck - the original PMP starts further right (but due to the misidentification most people do the described version instead).
