Traverse from the corner arête to Veronica.

Another traverse. Start at Veronica and head left to the arete

Another traverse of the courtyard. Start at FF and head right across the slab to SS.

Start at corner of block. Traverse along past s and t. step across and continue along wall towards YKS wall 10m

Sit start.

Walk to the end of the courtyard and turn right. Head down the gap and Orange Boulder will be on your left and the end of Spike boulder will be in front of you.

Up the left side of jugs and out. Needs a scrub and the crumbly holds knocked off.

Up the right side. Be careful, some weak holds need to be knocked off to make this better.

There are a number of good problems to be recorded on the right hand cave end in the future. Take a brush have a scrub and try some stuff out.

Sit start then up arête and top out.

Down climb the chipped steps on the right end of this block.

Traverse the main wall of the Spike Boulder.

Start in the cave. Up on jugs out to a right hand crimp/jug then swing out and up.

If you turn left at the end of the Spike Boulder / Block then head up the hill 4 or 5m there is another slab and cave with some easy problems to be had.

Sit start on the left then head in to jugs and up and out to sloper on face. I'm sure someone can link this up or extend it.

Start on left of cave. Jug to start, foot up to edge, then extend let arm up to rail then move left to finish both hands on small edge.

Unsure of where the routes below exist as they were never really recorded accurately.
