18 The Roof

In many ways shorter than its 13 metres would lead you to believe, this route starts up an easy grade 9 arete, then becomes much steeper, moving out over a rooflet with little to do with your feet for the first move or two but paste them to the limestone and grunt your way up.

If you're feeling exceptionally lazy, you can just walk up the grass slope and completely ignore the arete! Bolt recently moved down so it's below, rather than above the crux. Ringbolt lower-offs. Update 2013-08: Lower bolt has had the hanger stolen, sole bolt is at the crux

18 The Roof Left Hand Variant

In many ways harder than the Roof RH variant, this route involves climbing up the left arete (again, this is not hard climbing and could probably be ignored) then heading right from there and up through the roof. More smearing/oppositional holds required, and a little more skill and strength. This is also harder to protect than the Roof, as the bolt is further out. However, it will take cams, as long as you don't place them where your hands need to be!

10 Climb A RH Variant Finish

As for Climb A, but take a committing step out right into the next crack and then climb up.

9 Intro

Straight up the set of ledges immediately to the left of the roof, until you reach the two bolt belay. Plenty of spots for gear.

Trad 14m
9 Spondonical

Start 1 metre right of The Slab. Head up an easy right-veering crack, finishing at a two-bolt belay. Your pick as to which one!

Trad 16m
18 The Slab

Bolted slab. 3 bolts + wires or cams to ringbolt anchor. Only use the slab and not adjacent rock features. Starting to become very polished with time, and limestone's not the most fun stuff to slab on in the first place! Expect to slip at least once.

19 The Slab LH Variant Start

Bit of a contrived variant, this is essentially just a few different moves heading up the left side rather than straight up and paradoxically, if you're reasonably strong, probably the safer way to climb The Slab as there's some good oppositional holds.

13 Cave Crack

A pleasant crack starting 1.5 metres left of The Slab. Nothing particularly hard or dangerous, and good gear.

Trad 16m
14 Climb C

A pleasant climb up the face with a few ledges and ample opportunity for gear. Start below two diagonal cracks / ledges. Trend right, with the opportunity for a bit of a layback then back left at the top through a rooflet to DBB.

Trad 12m
14 Bee Line

Start 1 metre left of Climb C at the crack. Bridge up past a white patch, then up the slab above to two bolt belay.

Trad 12m
15 Climb E

Start just left of Climb D. Head up past a nice slabby section, then back right to the two bolt belay shared with Climbs C and D. Poor protection.

9 - 19 White Rocks Traverse

Traverse the crag from left to right. Difficulty depends entirely on how far you go, and the height at which you climb.
