Start beneath a prominent vertical crack 6m left of the big corner of Beanstalk. Go up the crack to a ledge then move left and climb the shallow corner to a tree. Step out right and finish up a crack.

As for Wander until the ledge, then move right into the recess/ledge. Climb this awkwardly and then step out to the arete and up to an exposed finish.

A classic of the sector. Start right of Beanstalk and climb the cracks that lad up to a good ledge around 10m. Climb the flakes to an old runner, then climb pockets, then move right to a small ledge and corner to finish.

Start up jamming the strenuous crack left of "Monster's Crack", then continue easily to the top.

Prominent left-facing corner crack.

Start left of the pillar, reach a niche. Step left to a corner crack and follow to finish.
