Lots of easy bits if you start further right. V1-ish if you start traversing from far left dark section of slab, roughly 15m left of Up The Side.

I'll put my name on it, but I'm sure I'm not the first...

On the left of the arete. A few crimps and a sloper up the top to finish

Start hands matched in the right poket right side of the arete traverse left around left then up the left side.

A low trasverse. Big holds at the start.

Start low and go up the arete. Dyno from the low to the hole if you are keen.

Start next crack to the right of UTH. Traverve right, feet generally low until And Out The Other Side. Extension next few metres possible at around V4. Some moves very easy, some a little technical.

FA: Tim Clarkson, 27 Sep 2021

Start: 1m left of orange scoop. Step up straight into the undercling hole, then finish via high-step into crimp and slopy mantle.

Up finger crack, avoiding wall

Right hand in scoop, up via crimp avoiding crack and hole.

Start: 1m right 'Through the hole'. Left facing flake then slopy mantle topout.

Contintue GFF by traversing right from AOTOS into Karate Kick (or a problem in its own right). Thin, slopey crimps and tricky feet. Probably easier if you're tall and can do the splits. Estimate V4. Rock quality pretty good.

Set: Tim Clarkson, 27 Sep 2021

Stand start, next crack to the right of AOTOS, and 2m left of man-made gutter assemblage. Step onto low footer, and karate kick opposite side of the crack, then stretch high for good crimps, then straight up to top out. You might not be able to do "The Boulder Problem", but you can karate kick on this instead.
