10 Far Right

Start 4m right of Fizz. Enjoyable climbing up cracks and ledges to the anchor bolts.

Trad 8m
11 Fizz

Start 1m right of Soda Pop. Climb the left-facing corner for a couple of metres then straight up the cracks.

Trad 11m
15 Soda Pop

Start 1m right of Lemonade. Straight up the crack. The crux is getting into the wide crack at the start, and is poorly protected. A #3 camalot may help if you can place it, otherwise probably better to top-rope this one. Alternative start: up Fizz then step left into the wide crack.

Trad 11m
12 Lemonade

Start 3m right of Peroxide Power. Climb the shallow chimney, then cracks and grooves.

Trad 11m
14 Peroxide Power

Start 5m right of Baby Arete at the twin shallow cracks. Climb the steep wall to the anchor bolts. Technical and sustained for 10m.

Trad 13m
6 Baby Arete

The easiest climb at White Rocks. Start about 2m right of the gully. Climb the arete, generally on the right side. The climbing finishes after about 11m on a ledge below a fixed runner that gives a great view of climbers struggling on The Roof. Top-rope using anchors above The Roof with the climber's rope threaded through the fixed runner.

Trad 18m
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 proper, this route starts up the gully then left hand corner (alternatively up the left arete, then step around to gain the roof). Traverse right under the roof, then around the lip to the bolt. 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!

11 Pulse

Scramble up the gully for about 9m until you are below the roof, then ascend the steep left hand corner exiting left under the roof to join Crossover at the committing step into the groove. Don't make the mistake of trying to directly climb the roof.

Trad 9m
10 Intro RH Variant Finish

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

Trad 14m
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
12 Crossover

Start on the right side of the tiny tower, about 2m left of Intro. Steep and fingery climbing up cracks and corners to cross Intro at about half height at the base of the wide right-facing corner. Then climb flakes and edges to an awkward and committing step right into the groove below the anchor bolts. Climb the groove to the anchors. Variant: finish up Intro.

Trad 17m
15 Tiny Tower

Climb the face of the precarious tower, then trend right to surmount the slab and up to the anchor bolts. Don't forget to stand on top of the tower. The crux is getting off the tower onto the slab above.

Variant: start at Crossover and climb the corner crack to join the route at the top of the tower.

Trad 15m
13 Florin

Climb the corner crack left of the tiny tower. Crux is at the level of the top of the tower and requires a big reach to good holds and a foot jam. Slightly easier to climb up the wall on the left but you can't avoid the foot jam. #3 and #4 camalots are useful.

Named after the late Florin Tepes who, with Armando, spent many happy hours here introducing youngsters to the wonderful world of climbing.

Trad 16m
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.

Mixed trad 15m, 3
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.

Mixed trad 15m, 3
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 Blinky

Start between Cave Crack and Bee Line. Climb the slab, heading towards a wide crack right of the fixed anchors. Crux is the first 5m of climbing.

Trad 13m
14 Bee Line

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

Trad 12m
15 Inky

Start at the base of Bee Line. Climb leftwards up the blocks then straight up the slab (through the white 'Pac Man' monster), placing runners in Bee Line when needed. Above the small overhang move left or right to the fixed anchors.

Trad 13m
9 Sally

Named after Armando's daughter. The crack at the left end of the crag. Start up Inky and move left into the crack near the white rock. Pleasant steep climbing up the crack with great jugs and one hard move near the top.

Trad 13m
18 Bunger hunger

Head left up the blocks as for Inky and Sally, then step left at the ledge. Funky rightwards diagonal traverse boulder problem, finishing straight over the top of the block. Repeat 100 times and head to Bungonia Gorge.

Trad 13m
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.
