Route Description

Cross the moat about 50m to the right of the Cataract waterfall. Climb 4th to low 5th class for about 200m on the right side of the Cataract waterfall, until reaching a steep wall and an easier ramp trending out right. Climb the ramp for approximately 400m staying right where gullies/ramps branch off left and up to the Cataract ridge. The ramp finally ends at a crumbly rusty coloured notch and an amazing view down a shear face into Grand Central Couloir. Climb the steep face (5.7) above the notch for 1 pitch to the Cataract ridge (alt. 1700m). Climb the Cataract ArĂȘte to finish.
