Park in the north face car park & start the slap from there! The route is gained by going aprox 50m up number 5 gully (beware of avalanche) before turning right up the obvious ramp leading to above 'The Curtain'.

An absolute gem of a route with fantastic positions the whole way up. Never difficult, numerous belays & continuous superb situations.
