Start at the high end of the path underneath the huge boulder which Mal de Mer climbs. Start bridging inwards and upwards until you find a hole on the ocean side of the boulder to exit out of. Best described as a once off epic due to there being no protection.

FFA: Aaron Keen, 2012

The large split boulder on the right of the descent route to Mal De Mer. Climb the off width crack that runs up the centre. Some flakes are brittle, and there is no pro so it's best to use an anchored spotter as a fall could be serious.

A long standing problem. Start at the base of the blunt arete facing the Pleasure Dome, 5 metres right of the start of 'Trois D' Artagnon'. Climb easily to the first FH, then continue to second FH. Try your hardest to reach the third FH, then continue to the roof. Traverse left across underclings and finish up short crack (wire or cam), then onto slab (BR).

A short memorable '14'. Adding to the excitement is how long will the window last!

Start: Start from inside the Tafoni (umbrella looking rock). Thread a sling through the window, clip and go! Step out then make your way over the top.

FA: Gary Scott & Greg Moore

Rap down the Mer Sea slab (current guidebook definition). Twin cracks L of Mer Sea to a ledge then the slab past a bolt.

FA: Paul Badenoch, Vicki Kavanagh & David Newell, 2015

Toprope or solo the pleasant little slab about 15m R of Comme Ci Comme Ca. Known on here as Sunny Slab for a time.

FA: Jon Chester (solo), 1978

Rap down behind the top of the Buster Hymen block to find a slab system that looks about grade 14. Referred to as Mer Sea in the Nick Neagle guidebook.

FA: Nick Neagle?

A direct start to Walking on the Moon.

FA: Peter Daish & Jaimie Holland, 2007
