Grade Route

The following routes are up on the peninsula a little north, just before the first gully when you walk in from Little Bay Beach.

Easy warmup, avoid the cave for more warmup.

Good fun. Sit start. Place your feet only where your hands have been finishing with a high foot and rolling up like a baguette.

FA: Postman

Same sit start as Croissant boy, traverse to finish at Baguette boy.

A decent roof line next to a cliff - start deep into the cave where there is a large opening with obvious hands and feet. Make your way through some very good and some flakey holds. Once you come out and around the corner get a heel hook in and reach up to find a nice hold to top out.

Notes: be careful to not go out too far out and have a spotter watch your head next to the rock at the corner

The following routes are in The Corners proper.

Follow the crack line and top out.

Up the left side of the slab.

On the back of the slab with Corner Balcony. Sit start, using the pinches, move left to a mantle finish.

1m right of the middle, between corner and black streak.

On narrow black streak

On the wide black streak

Palm press on nose to start, tend right then up.

Start: Right of "Froth Corner".

Hanging (gibbon) start from the hole, then crank over and top out over the holdless slab. Easier with left hand in the hole and right in the crack.
