Starts in the corner and joins "Layer Cake" in the chimney.

FA: Tony Burnell, Dec 2017

At the left hand end of The Thunderdome, goes directly up through the groove in the roof to the left of Gone Bimbo.

FA: Tony Burnell

The obvious line on the L end of the roof. Often wet. Pull to the fourth bolt then traverse R along the crack. Previously required a cam at the end of the traverse; now there's an extra bolt. There's also a new anchor to the left of the original anchor, which has rusted badly. Numerous variations exist.

FA: Ton Snelder, 1989

FA: Peter Carter, 1990

FA: Andy Cockburn, 1993

FA: Lionel Clay, 1989

FA: Peter Taw, 1993

Gymnastic and steep moves almost directly out the wall, going slightly left to finish at top of Gone Bimbo. good edges if a bit sharp, and plenty of bolts

FA: Pete Taw, 1992

FA: Tony Burnell

FA: Sefton Priestley, 2004

FA: Peter Taw

FA: Dave Fearnley

Steep and hard before you get to the jugs and then easier terrain. A spicy final jaunt leads you to the anchors.
