Slow Twitch Extension
Start as for Slow Twitch, then continue up corner to top.
FA: M. Law, 1988
Start up Slow Twitch, after clipping the last bolt (before the final desperate mantle) traverse up and rightwards towards the NEW bolt, keeping fairly high (you shouldn't be touching those Orchids) to join Sluj Gulpa P3 after it's traverse (where the climb begins to head up the flake/corner systems. Follow this to the top.
A 60m rope will NOT lower back to the ground from the anchors. HOWEVER, if you are working this route, you CAN lower to the ground from the LAST BOLT with a 60m rope.

Modern Masculinity Top Pitch
Can be climbed as an alternate pitch to the final pitch of Big Bird. It's a little harder and a lot scarier. Seconds beware of the potential for a big swing. Maybe clean the second draw after mantling (you'll see). 2 fixed hangers on the left arete of the beak.
FA: James Bultitude, 2014
Start at bolted slab down from Offal Dredger, below obvious steep layback corner. P1 - Up easy slab to groove and crack, then up and right to belay beneath steep layback corner. P2 - Up steep layback corner, which lessons to slab and crack. Step right past bolt, then hard, thin move through bulge to slab and belay. P3 - Left to "beak" feature. Up onto beak (with some difficulty), then up easily to single bolt-belay. Scramble up and left to lookout.
FA: Gareth Downey, Mikl Law, 2012
Start 15m right of Offal Dredger, 6m right of Big Bird. Climb rib right of obvious corner. P1 - Up to corner and belay at ledge (gear). P2 - Right and around arete, up slab. At 4th bolt head up right to ridge, and back left to tree. P3 - Up cracks to easy ground.
