Starts up the arête just where the track rises to meet the cliff. Optional protection in the crack on the right. Over the blocks and on up the arête all the way with reasonable protection. There is a DBA high up in the corner to the right at the top of Chimps.

First protection is fairly high, but after that it's well protected. Climb up the groove 2m right of the arete, continue up the corner then through the roof.

There's a chain at the top to rap off.

Start up the crack to the left of the The Shoveller, then take the left hand flaring crack above that. Good protection.

Prominent left facing corner, start on the left wall then move up through the chimney before moving back to the left wall again. Exit either to the right or over the top blocks. There is an abseil station to the left dropping down onto the platform

Climb technical face on small edges past 2 bolts to a steep finish.

Begin in the corner with an arching hand crack to the left and a seam on the right. Once you get established above this, take the right hand crack and turn the roof on the right, then follow the crack to the top.

The fantastic crack line. Enjoy the surprise mantel to finish.

Hard start up thin edges leads you to a superb hand crack and an offwidth. Well worth it.

Another superb slab/face climb. Start in corner to the left, or go direct over first bolt at grade 21. Take some gear for top section.

Starts in the middle of the wall R of C. at a small crack. Just below vegetation in the crack move R to a ledge and up the central one of three cracks to a sloping ledge. Step L up crack to ring anchors.
