Approximately 3 minutes north of the twin sea stacks that run parallel to the coast.

A compelling, well protected line and fairly amenable if you are a competent hand jammer.

Hi Damien, the phot doesn't show the whole of the line but I'd say it shows the 2nd crux fine. Let us know how it goes it your'e up for the 3rd ascent and what you think of the line and its grade?

Looks like a nice route alright - would I be right in thinking the climber in the pic is at the crux???

Dave Millar and Geoff Thomas got the 2nd ascent of this on 25/08/08. Dave made it look like a VS but confirmed the grade. Both felt that the climb warrants 2 stars. I certainly won't argue with that, it's a great line nonetheless.
