A massive wall with some huge bolted routes that have a slightly adventurous feel about them. The climbing is not strenuous but often involves thin moves or long reaches between breaks. The routes tend to feel very exposed in their upper reaches. The rock is mostly solid but there are loose sections lower down on the wall, and on the mid height ledges.

This long pitch with some good moves gives a memorable outing. The upper section is an amazing wall at the grade.

The best on the wall. A fine piece of climbing from start to finish with the hardest section attaining the strip overhang.
