Grade Route

Hands-free up the trackside staircase, doubles as descent route

Up the narrow face. No sides

Layback the right arete of the boulder face.

Smearing up the overlaps left of the arete

Take care not to use the chip for your foot. or deduct a grade.

There's a trick to this one. Up the next set of overlaps.

Again, avoid the chipped foothold.

Start as for #5, but go straight up avoiding the large holds on the right

Layback and undercling the long overlap to the finish of #5

Up the overlaps using a flexy flake at the top

Up using the vertical overlap above the white polished slab. Slopey edge near top.

Layback the next overlap along, diagonally right.

Start on low broken undercling, then deviously attain the face and the good holds therein

From broken undercling, reach/slap the sloping lip, then over and up using the right arete

Again from the broken undercling, traverse left below slopey lip and get established round on the left side of the block

Start standing on the left side of the block. Drop down and traverse the slopey nose to end up on the right side.

Anti-clockwise traverse of the boulder (stays below top). Hard traverse on the back end of the boulder.

Traverse The Nose then right and down through overlaps to link up with problem 7.

Traverses the block (Hermit's Cave) right-to-left staying just below the top
