|21||★ Tangled up in Blue
Lots of long reaches, just as I like it! Start 2 metres down the hill from Desolation Row.
FA: Matt Tranter, 11 Aug 2012
Hard first move and then great pocket pulling to the top. Harder for the short. Start 5 meters down the hill past a small overhung cave.
FA: Matttranter, 21 Jul 2012
|17||★★ Happy Hogmanay
Start just to the right of the large zawn / cave system. Trend right up the ramp until forced left out on to the arete. Great jugs to the top
FFA: Matt Tranter, 30 Dec 2011
|10||Going on a Bear Hunt.
Solo / caving - could be trad protected. Enter the cave Zawn and thruch and dangle up towards the day light. At the mid way point you can either crawl through the tiny slit (if you are a five year old) or carry on up through the precariously perched boulders to the golden eagles nest. Exit with care and scramble back down past the upper level climbs.
Even better in the wet where the rain may lubricate the tubby.
FA: Thomas & Matt Tranter, 23 Sep 2016
|16||★★ The Eiger Sanction
Start in the cave. Back and foot up the chimney (if you are too young to know what that means then google it youth). Take care after the third bolt as it is run out, stay in the cave where it is nice and safe. Exit left with the grace of a goat or the flop of a whale to the anchor of Dole Bludgers.
|18||★★ Dole Bludgers
Crimpy moves flowing nicely up the faint line of weakness. Start 2metres left of the narrow cave.
FA: Matt Tranter, 15 Sep 2016
|18||★ All Hail King Trump
5 metres to the right of New Years Edge. The route goes up directly under the small tree on the ledge at half height. Pull hard of the ground and balance, high step and wobble upwards.

|★★ Project MT
Short steep blunt arête.
|21||★ A Family Affair.
Start dirctly under the large crack and flake.
Pull up on to the first ledge and then follow the crack upwards. Harder finishing moves.
