Grade Route

Step off the large boulder (or off the ground if you have fingers of steal). Balance up the areve and finish at shared anchors. Short. First route on the small boulder at the bottom of the descent gully

FA: Matt Tranter, 2011

Snappy bottom , up two small ledges to the Gritstone finish. Much harder if you stay out of the crack First route on The Boulder.

FA: Matt Tranter, 2011

One hard move over the lip and it is all over. Bring those large sea gull bashers. Trad crack at the far left end of the Block, next to the descent path.

FA: Stephan Pervanoglu, 2011

1m right of the trad crack.Pull over the lip and trend left. The second block. Updated 2017 - harder after a number of key holds pulled off.

FA: Matt Tranter, 2011

Off balance, mean and thugish. use anything you like, twist and turn, pull through the bands, finish at the right hand anchors. Start 1 metre right of Shallow Grave.

FA: Matt Tranter, 2011

As the name suggests, get deep in that crack. Wobble without much protection using both walls and exit to the bolts at the top of the crag. The second trad crack on this face.

FA: Stephan Pervanoglu, 2000

Hard pull from a three finger slot. Up the features to the large ledge. Bouldery and very balancy finish. The last line of bolts on this side of the block.

FA: Simon Vaughan, 2011

Hard pull off the big jugs, trend left to a large rest ledge. Two cruxes follow, join the finger pockets and stretch as tall as possible. Shared start with Dodging Bullets.

FA: Matt Tranter, 2011

Nice heaving on big holds to balancy moves to gain stance then some trickiness to triple bolt anchors. Under cut start left hand side of wall facing the gorge

FA: Simon Vaughan

Heave up jug start then balancy and surprisingly powerful 4 move traverse, then straight up Start as for Dodging Bullets then move right Steep and then balancy climbing on great rock, firction is superb from Autumn onwards

FA: Simon Vaughan

Up corner with interest to an airy finish on the headwall In the corner around to the right of the main wall as you face the cliff The corner is hard and 3D to get up and the headwall is steeper than you think

FA: Simon Vaughan, 2011

Probably a batman start to get it done we will see

Share the start with the previous climb. Still needs one more bolt to go directly to the lower offs. Going to be really hard as all the holds run out.

Start: 2 metres further right
