βeta: Quite tricky to pick out the right line I found. Too far right is too easy, too left is the V.Diff (I think). Did a combo of both it times. Hardest move is getting onto the climb via the 45 degree crack in Bastow Gully. Mostly moved together, but in perfect conditions.

Misha 11 Jul Solo O/S Some good scrambling but most of this is technical walking, unless you take steeper variants on the left in the first half. Taking the easiest line is grade 2 as others have noted. Wet day so did some of the steeper sections but not all. Assuming the path of least resistance is followed, the crux is the first section up the crack with a chockstone. Small ledge with small threads to belay. Would want to avoid that section in descent.
