FA: Nick Cradock & Murray Ball, 2005

Can be climbed either as two pitches or as one long pitch. Layback onto a low-angle face climb, once at anchors head right up steeply through jugs.

Access via the hand lines moving right. First route on left. Turn the Arête, then head left and up through beautifully featured stone. Nice tech climbing on good edges.

FA: Murray Ball, 2005

Over the bulge and straight up on better holds. First route right from Slap on the Face.

Slightly overhanging fun on jugs. Start in the corner.

First route on the right
