A nice slab climb at the left end of the wall. Double Bolt, chain and Maillon rapide anchor.

FA: Bryce Martin, 2019

Climb the short chimney and high step on to the slab. Long sleeves and knee pads handy! Same anchor as "Janne,s Slab"

FA: Bryce Martin, 2019

Power straight over the overhang to gain the slab above. The name came from braking two hammers bolting the climb! Triple Bolt, chain and Maillon Rapide anchor.

FA: Stephen Shaw, 2016

Another nice slab climb on pockets. The name came from bending 3 bolts white bolted the climb. Double bolt, chain, and maillon rapid anchor.

As an alternative finish, traverse left, before the cliff steepens and climb up "Two hammers" at grade 16. or traverse left at the over lap at grade 17 ish?

This alludes to certain famous incidents where a commander, having landed in a hostile country, ordered his men to destroy their ships, so that they would have no choice but to conquer the country or be killed. It is also a song title, and now a climb. Starts at a crack, then tricky slab climbing with the crux before the overlap. Shares the same last bolt and anchor as "Cut the ties" Double, Bolt, Chain and Maillon Rapide.

FA: Stephen Shaw, 2019

Climbs the steep shallow groove on to a slab, then through an over lap. It shares the same last bolt and anchor as "Burn the ships", but is a little harder.

FA: Stephen Shaw, 2019

A bold-ly start. I have seen 3 different ways of doing it! Climb the steep crack to easier ground, step right at the top to a ledge. Uses the same anchor as "Lonesome". TBCMr.

FA: Bryce Martin, 2019

Up the slaby arete. Uses the same anchor as "Mud n Crud" TBCMr

FA: Bryce Martin, 2019

The name says it all. Climb the wide crack that angles left, with the best style possible! Double, bolt, chain, and Maillon Rapide anchor.

FA: Bryce Martin, 2019

Start as for Horrible, after clipping the first bolt move right over the first over lap. Follow the bolts up the slab and through another over lap at the top. A little contrived but still a nice slab climb. Double Bolt and Chain. You can rebelay to the anchor of "29 C˚"

FA: Bryce Martin, 2019

Twenty nine was the temperature when Bryce lead this! Lots of high steps on this one. Triple Bolt Chain Maillon Rapide anchor.

FA: Bryce Martin, 2019

Start on the face then use the corner to gain the anchor. Nice technical climbing. TBCMr

FA: Bryce Martin, 2020
