Approach: Follow as per blydepoort PDF above, and head for large free-standing pillar, about 60m high. Best to walk past it and then ascend from the back.

The First or the Last (21, N, 3P)

P1 (21): Climb the broken layback/seam to a face and belay ledge. 15-20m.
 +
 +
P2 (19): Head up the short layback crack and gain the top of the block after a small ledge. 10m

 +
P3 (16): Traverse to the arete, then go straight up to top out on the pillar.

Notes: P1 has no protection past halfway up. P3 is bold. Overall a bold and scary route. Take care! Take slings for leaving on top for abseil. Please post other known ascents as there are a few potential lines and slings on top, not shown on PDF above.
