6 1

Climb to overhanging roof of cave and over this by a good crack; then a steep wall to top.

5- 2

Climb rotten chimney, traverse L below overhangs, go up zigzag crack and hence to top.

6 3

Climb a recess to a shallow chimney; go up this to top.

Climb a recess to a shallow chimney; go up this to top.

6+ 4

Start at a recessed ledge. Gain slab on L. Move R and climb very steep crack, moving L at the top (crux) to an easy finish.

5- 4a

Access to routes 4a,b and c is from boulders at water level just R of overhanging walls. From L end of boulders climb a rib, traverse 10m. L under bulging walls (good protection) then climb a crack to the top.

6- 4b

Climb cracks rightwards to a big bouldery ledge below roofs. Climb over these left then right to easier ground.

1 4c

An easy descent ramp.

4- 5

Reached from a boat. Climb the easy crack which develops into a chimney. Go up this to ledge and tree. The next pitch climbs through overhangs immediately right and above ledge, traversing right below final overhang to finish.

5+ 6

Routes 6 and 7 start from a great rock pinnacle. Climb a thin groove, traverse left and climb the great left-facing and overhanging corner to top. A more difficult approach is directly from the bottom (VI-).

6- 7

Routes 6 and 7 start from a great rock pinnacle. Take a groove in slab above the pinnacle; above 2 small bushes make a thin traverse right to gain the easier left-facing comer. An easier start involves climbing right to a roof with a crack under it. Traverse left below this to base of corner (IV+).

5 8

Routes 8 and 9 start from an easy slab found some 8m. above the water level and between the 2 great pinnacles, from either of which the slab can be reached. Climb to 2 facing corners. Gain base of left one with difficulty and finish up right corner and a slab wall to the right of it.

5 9

Routes 8 and 9 start from an easy slab found some 8m. above the water level and between the 2 great pinnacles, from either of which the slab can be reached. From the easy slabs move diagonally rightwards to gain a very steep corner with loose blocks at its base (almost directly above a chimney leading up to the right pinnacle ledge). Climb directly in the comer, trending right to top.

4 10

A broken crack system directly behind the pinnacle to big tree belays.

3 11

Routes 11,12,13 and 14 start right of the big pinnacle. It is possible to traverse right to these from the pinnacle area, though the traverse is harder than any move on the climbs. Climb a right-trending chimney to steepening and hence a tree belay. Now easy rocks to the top.

5- 12

Routes 11,12,13 and 14 start right of the big pinnacle. It is possible to traverse right to these from the pinnacle area, though the traverse is harder than any move on the climbs. The tree may be reached direct by a steep crack.

4+ 13

Routes 11,12,13 and 14 start right of the big pinnacle. It is possible to traverse right to these from the pinnacle area, though the traverse is harder than any move on the climbs. A difficult traverse right from the base of no. 12 leads to a small slab and possible belay. It is easier to reach this by boat. Climb a crack left-wards then direct to big ledges. Easy rock to the top.

4+ 14

From the slab of no. 13, climb right-wards then straight up a crack to easy ground and the top.

2 15

At the far right end of the crag, an obvious and deep left-facing chimney.

Touching my Void

A low basalt crag on the other side of the B4 main road from Robert's Camp. The rock is quite loose, so take care.

Main Crag

Taller crag opposite Touching my Void.

Main Crag
VS 4c Bubble and squeak

From ‘Touching My Void’, this route follows the easiest-looking line up the face straight opposite, over the valley, following the right-facing corner.

  1. 4c (40m). Start up small wall under corner, and traverse left under a steepening block into a gully. This turns into a corner, which is followed to a belay on top of a rock pillar.

  2. 4c (40m). Continue up the corner via hard moves through a wide crack (crux) and exit via easier scrambling to top. Two tree abseils return you to the base of the crag
