Grade Route

The left variation of Iran Merinus, named in the honour of setters' good friend Faramarz who's apparently a bit of a handful 60 something year old dude. Smear away to a powerful bouldery move to the overhang.

A bouldery start on the overhang, onto small balancy stem-ing footholds. Traverse the roof crack to the cruxy move on the second roof. Adventurous hidden moves behind the rock and up to the anchor.

Instead of going up the crack on the 2nd rooflet, go for the bouldery moves on the face.

The other friend of the setters -Abbas- a local legend, tends to spend his time sleeping at the crag. Double crux goodness at the start and end of the route. Technical moves on the vertical wall on small crimps and credit card footholds. Balancy.

Gentle climb without a crux, perfect for those comfortable on their feet. Slight overhang on the rooflet that can be mantled up. Pocket holds to the top. A lovely climb that is not to be missed.

This rock face has a slightly different colour and is of a different type. A blank 90+ degree arete with very few holds. A rather narrow crack to the side with only few finger tip holds
