Could be mixed as only has two bolts near the start of the climb. Pretty average rock, on good hold for starting climb pulled off on 25/9/2018. Finish by exiting on to grassy ledge! or moving left to finish at Violet Crumble's anchor.

FA: Marcus Thomas, 1999

FA: Bruce Dorwick, 1990

Start under the first bolt, pull up onto the face, then climb up underneath the small roof. Pull over the roof and climb straight up to the anchor shared with Passage to India.

FA: Andrew Buist, 2001

Crimp your way up the face before moving over the bulge. Make sure your belayer is alert before moving up to clip the 3rd bolt. To protect the top and reduce the chance of a ground fall, you could take some small nuts to protect the final moves of climb.

FA: Paul Tattersall, 1990

Corner left of overlap. You can move right and finish as for PTI (as done originally), or finish directly up over steep ground on good holds, clipping the last bolt on SS.

FA: Peter Sykes, 1990

Nice juggy climbing to a delicately pumpy finish.

FA: Lindsay Main, 1996

FA: Paul Tattersall, 1990

Step in from the right, or use the harder direct start (about 19) to the first bolt. Then climb the corner on big holds, but with a couple of reachy moves. Exit left to the "Quick & Dirty" top out. Originally listed as 20, but seems to be getting steadily downgraded

FA: Simon, 2012

Boulder up the steep black wall below the main corner, or use the easy start to the right. Rest on the ledge, then commit yourself to the steepening corner with loose holds, followed by the climactic loose juggy overhang. Exit left. Originally a trad route, but now you can clip bolts on the neighbouring routes.

FFA: Phil Stuart-Jones, 1996

Start on pointy block and do hard moves through corner to easier climbing up arete.

Hard start up hanging arete feature to some sustained climbing to break. Anchor just above lip.
