Climbing Routes
Normal Route II 5.5
As a result of the reduced traffic the route has had in the last few years the amount of loose rock on the route has increased somewhat. In fact, the rock is pretty rank in many places - it always has been and always will be! However, don't let the state of the rock deter you in the slightest. The climbing is not difficult and in at least one place it is unusual. Furthermore, the situation on the summit is unique with the walls of Lefroy towering above you. It's quite "atmospheric". Go do the route - it's a fun day out, trust me (!). Dougherty, Selected Alpine Climbs page 90
