Start on the same jug as "Ordinary Men", and head straight up the left side of the arete.

FA: Mike Hitchcock, 2015

A lower start to Ordinary Arete which gets it up to the stated V2. Improves the climb. RH on side pull in line with the two trees, LH at same height to the left. Start holds in topo.

Sit start at jug on right arete as per Ordinary Arete. Traverse leftwards staying below the top. Make big moves to finish on the left arete.

Sit start at jug on right arete as per Ordinary Arete. Traverse leftwards staying below the top, and finishing on the cheater stone to your left.

The obvious link. Climb ordinary men to the slope traverse then before gaining left arete and without using cheater chock gain arete of extraordinaire and climb it to high finish. Surprisingly lumpy transition. Might be V3... but you wouldn’t want to pump out and punt the exit!

SDS Tight squeeze to start with the boulders to the left and behind. Sharp pocket for the right, low larger pocket for the left. Long pull to the side pull in the seam working hard not to touch the boulder behind.

Sit start with underclings on the large pockets in the middle of the face. Head straight up.

FA: Mike Hitchcock, 2015

Standing start in the pit. Takes the mostly juggy left edge of the arete, till it is possible to make a long move right into the cleft.
