20 Regicide Mixed 10m, 1

Ridiculously run out to the first bolt. If your sane, you can protect the lower moves by placing trad protection in the crack of Royal Auto.

8 Lara's Knockers Trad 15m

The left of the two obvious trenches in the face where the path arrives at the crag.

Starts just right of Laras Knockers, with easy climbing to the first (disconcertingly high) bolt, then becoming harder towards the top, with a committing finish. Double ring bolt loweroff marked in topo is at least 5 meters back from the top of the climb and is shared with adjacent climbs.

Tricky start (crux) to carrot bolt. The easier moves to the top.

The last climb on the far right side of the crag. Delicate start to bolt, then though easy ground.
