{UIAA} 3 NE Gully and Ridge

Time: Half a day. An obvious fully leads to the North-East Ridge. Then rope down to another gully which leads to the summit. A much better (if harder) variation to this route is to follow the first gully until the wall steepens. Go up and traverse left, then follow cracks up to a tat belay. Fun, maybe Severe climbing with a well-protected crux. From belay go up until te ridge, then follow right to top. Descent is back down the same route on tat anchors. Check this and add your own tat. 3 proper pitches, the initial gully can easily be scrambled or simul-climbed.

VS DBO

Lovely little route up the main face overlooking the area. Slightly unprotected start on good holds to a horizontal crack which will take a small nut, then up to a big crack which slants up diagonally to the right. Follow this with good holds and gear and finish straight up from where the crack ends, on good holds but no gear for the last few metres.

29 Resistance is Futile

This route has it's hand up for best line in the cave. It's definitely got some of everything. If you can climb this grade, you should definitely get on this.

23 And Then You Are Dead

The grade of the route is 22, 23 or 24 depending on your genes, but to make you feel good when you send it, call it 24. The line of bolts to the right of Gay Cats... . The higher you get, the better it gets, and the harder it gets, testing a variety of skills and strengths. The anchors are next to a fence post jutting out from the top of the crag and can be clipped from the top (with great caution).
