23 Stranglehold Sport 19m

7RB's to 2RB anchor.

FA: Rod Young

2
21 Burpin McGlurkin Sport 17m

Climb the boulder at the bottom of the access gully. From the top of the boulder move left and pull onto the hanging arête. Traverse left past 3RBs then continue up.

6RB's to 2RB anchor.

FA: John Koster

19 Smirkin & Lurkin Sport 15m

Start as for 'Burpin McGlurpin' but after pulling onto the hanging arête continue straight up before moving left to the big blob hold. Finish by running it out to the anchors. Some may feel a little nervous getting from the boulder onto the hanging arête as the 1st bolt does look a long way down … so take care.

5RB's to 2RB anchor.

FA: John Koster

16 Gherkin The Merkin Sport 10m

Stick clip the first RB. A difficult but enjoyable introduction to the climb is followed by what appears to be a very difficult move. On closer examination however this is circumvented by the use of a manufactured pocket that looks like it was created with a jack hammer not sculptured with the precision of a 12mm drill bit. This 'Thank God Pocket' is actually all that is left of a misplaced bolt placement.

If you do the climb by stemming back against the opposite wall to bypass any difficulties the grade is about 16.

5RB's to 2RB anchor.

Start: Start 2m up the access gully.

FA: John Koster, 2000
