Starting just left of Torched. This fun route has a technical start for beginners, and tricky finish for shorter climbers.

A very fun climb with good holds up to a balancy crux! Starting 2m right of BIU; up the flake, jugs, another flake then onto the slab and up to the chains. Beware of blocks that might still be loose.

Starting around the corner from Torched and just left of Phantom Bolters. A fun route that requires good footwork, and trusting feet to get to the anchor. It shares an anchor with Phantom Bolters.

Starting just right of YB. This route has engaging and fun moves where a height dependent move in the middle is possible. It shares an anchor with Yogi Bear.

Starting just left of Nacho Libre, this is an excellent warm-up route for the area, with a technical start, and a consistent intensity level up to the finish after a short rest. Fun and technical!

Start 2m R of Haywalker. Up the flake and into the corner. Step R onto the face and up to the first lower off. Seeps extensively after rain.

Despite the name, there's good technical climbing up the corner above Nacho Libre's chains. Climb NL and continue up the corner past 4 RBs to the lower off.

Some fine thin and technical face climbing with interesting boulder start. Start as for Nacho Libre for 2 bolts then move R up the hanging arete before coming L onto the face higher up. Finish at the chains as for Nacho Average Hero.

Starting uphill from The Willing Flesh. This route has some cool moves with a few awkward and hard ones.

A steep and pumpy route with a crux at the end.

FFA: Christopher Glastonbury, 23 Mar 2012

No time for second guessing, seond guessing. Climb 1st 3m of NITH, then charge R onto steep face. Head straight up to the cave . Mind the wasps 3/4 of way up in cave. They were removed but keep coming back! Stick clip 1st bolt.
