Grade Route

Left to right traverse starting on huge jug in left hand corner (left of ELV) and taking a low level traverse all the way across the wall past Mercy Street finishing in less than ideal rock approx 5m right of this.

FA: 11 Dec 2011

Sit start left of ELV with RH undercling and LH slopey sidepull. Pull on and go LH to small edge, then bypass finger slot with RH and instead go to higher sidepull. LH sidepull, then RH dynamic into the slot of ELV Lefthand. LH to jug. 5 moves.

Start slighty left of the original on two small edge side pulls and head directly up on small holds to ledge at mid point. Finish up original line. First bolt cannot be reached so it's a high-ball to the second bolt.

The bolted line beneath the staircase on the left end of the wall. High second bolt.

Starts slightly right of the original line. Head directly up using holds in the original line as left hand holds and minimal right hand holds (sidepulls) to one very long dynamic move at the end.

Sit start with LH gaston edge and higher RH sidepull. Make three moves to gain good gaston of original. Take it to the top!

Climb ELV right hand variant to the ledge and finish as for Footswitch.

FA: Petey Pete, 17 Nov 2014

ELV to its 2nd bolt then veer hard right, gain the staircase, rest for a year or two, then into RO clipping its 2nd bolt. Finish as for RO direct.

FA: Steve Kelly, 20 Oct 2014

Top rope up the front face of staircase to the chains. Swing left after first step of the stair case. (may be named something else)

FA: April Westcott, Stuart Williams. & at around the same time by Rick Jeukin, 1990

Once graded 25. A technical sequence.

Very contrived. Stick-clip RO's first draw, then climb the blank wall between RO and PO, using their crack's for hand and foot holds.

FA: Paul Kinnane, 2004

Climb RO to it's 2nd bolt then traverse right across PO, Gonads and through a decidedly thin sequence to join Mercey Street at it's good sidepull between it's 2nd & 3rd bolt. Finish as for this route.

Originally established at 24 via the RO start (the start of Merciless), but a better route starting up PO making it a grade easier. Climb the first two BR's of Percetive Orators then head right across the good jug on AGW and clip the bolt out right on Elephantiasis. Span right to a positive sidepull then keep traversing right into Gonads RHV. Climb the last two BR's of this route and finish at the chain of Mercy Street.

FA: Justin Taylor; Mick Wells; Bill O'Connor

A training link. Starts on loose jug left of graffiti left of ELV then traverses right to finish up all of PO with no rest.

Start up PO then break left into RO after the first bolt and finish up this. Another link.

Was 22 then hold breakage upped grade to 23. In 2011 the flake came off resulting in a large sidepull. Now 22 again.

Up Perceptive Orators to the break, then right across the break and into Elephantiasis of the G. A good link. Can also be started as for AGW.

AGW then into PO and finishing as for RO Lefthand finish. Easiest route on this wall.

Rarely done. Takes line right of PO through underclings to scar (horizontal) - then up to independent chain shared with Elephantiasis.

Up Elephantiasis to 2nd bolt then left into PO and finish up this.

A hard crimpy start leads into easier climbing above.

The line without a lower off. Hold breakage at the start (chossy rock) and no protection leads into the crack.

Up Mercy Street then left to join Gonads RH (groundfall possible) - bust horizontally left into EoftheG then left again into PO. Against your better judgement keep trucking left into RO and finish as for the left hand finish to that route. Runout finish off the PO 2nd bolt.

FA: 2012

Shares the start with Gonads RH but finishes at Mercy chains. Now a full equipped sport route.

The right hand line on the graffitti wall. An intense sequence past three bolts.

Climbs the obvious vertical weakness to the right of Mercy Street. When it ends move slightly right to some good side pull blocks and up. Rock deteriorates at the top.

FA: Petey Pete, 25 Jan 2017

Start a meter right of 'Bomber Choss' under the obvious large sloper. Climb up the face via bouldery moves and finish as for 'Bomber Choss'.
