The middle of the smooth slab. Finger tip pockets to a technical dyno.

The nice line up the L-hand side.

FA: Doug Hockly

The obvious rising traverse line from L to R on the next side around. Start as far left as possible and slap along right on very open-grip holds. Finish by topping out on the boulder. Quite a bit harder when done barefoot.

FA: Lee Skidmore, 1998

Starts 0.5m right of the start of SH at the two-handed undercling. Pull onto wall, slap up and left to hold, crimp, then a balancy high step and pull up to jugs and top of boulder.

FA: Lee Skidmore, 1998

The thin, orange diagonal with a boulder to fall on.

FA: Doug Hockly

Sitstart on pockets and up. Topout straight up or pike L (V4 and probably nicer)

FA: Doug Hockly

The boulder behind you when you're facing Slap Happy has a mono problem and a dyno from bottom jugs to the top.

FA: Doug Hockly

Classic thin finger-crack in largest of several rocky outcrops on hill at south end of Alma Bay beach (right side of the bay as you look out to sea). Goes up the side facing the ocean.

FA: Andrew Rule & Mark Gommers, 1995

Boulder with obvious off width crack, on the ocean facing side: Up to gain the break, traverse left and up to easy ground. Low tide only.
