  Starting near the left end of the crag, take the line of least resistance following cracks and blocks to the top. The name comes from the repeated call of one of the students on the first ascent.

  In the middle of the cliff is an obvious recess topped by an overhang. Climb up this and out left, before the overhang is reached, and move up a series of cracks to the top. Some quite tricky moves.

  Start in the recess, just right of the previous route, but move out right onto the arête. Continue up the arête, over a series of overlaps which provide interesting moves, to the top.
