Approximately 30m right of THE THEATRE, are a pair of open books at the top of the crag. They are 10m apart - the right hand one has a pillar at its foot and a tree 5m up. Start below this one. Gain the ledge below the tree and then follow the crack above to the top of the pillar below the open book. Climb this and exit left. Apparently hard to find placements for the belay at the top.

Climbs the corner to the left of Damn the Torpedoes. Scramble up to the tree on the left and traverse to a ledge on the right (bolt). Climb the corner to a roof, pull through and up to a tree at the top.

FA: Stewart Middlemiss, Chris Lomax & Richard Lord, 1992

Climb the „‟Indian Creek‟‟ type corner 20m left of Joy Division, left of a very steep leaning wall (Tectonic Wall).. The bolt can be seen from the ground. Great climbing with a single stopper crux.

FA: Mike Hislop, 1992

Some bolts on the blank face above a ledge, left of Joy Division. Ask Paul Bouard if you can open it.

The rough textured blank wall. Climb slightly rightwards with difficulty up the thin face, until you can move back left to reach the base of the corner. Carry on to the top. Originally graded 29. Totally impossible if you are short..go on, prove me wrong!

FA: Richard Lord, 1992
