Find the overhanging cave to the right of the Crumble boulder. Stand-start in good holds in the horizontal crack. Find your feet and mantle over the top with a marginal crimp to find the second crack at the top. Look for the cave paintings in the right side of the cave!

Stand-start on the good holds in the middle "corner" of the boulder. Find th only decent hold up and right from there, get your right foot high and mantle hard to the top.

FA: IanT, 2020

Stand-start on the best two holds at the far left of the boulder. One big foot move, one big hand move, and you're in a second crack above and topping out.
