Getting full value out of this wall by zigging and zagging your way up.

Start as for 'Loop the loop' but once you get to the nose on the arete zag back down on the next band of edges up. Follow this to the far right, then move up to the next band of edges and go left (a longer move here) to top out.

Done without using any hand holds twice. The best way to do some endurance training on this wall. Reverse once at top for more value.

Set by Phillip Booth

One mover slapping from low left hand side-pull in the weakness to the big break. Continue up easily to top out.

FA: Phillip Booth, 2020

Starting as for Loop the Loop. Contrived eliminate traversing from left to right keeping hands below (and out of) the big break, utilising the slopes and small holds. Lower break towards the end is in however. Finish matched on far right jugs or continue for easy top out above.
