  1. This was originally the continuation pitches of Santa Chimney but it is probably worth treating as a stand alone climb since it is easily accessed from the top end of the Crimea Wall.Up the curving line to overlap then hard moves to ledge. 9B
  2. Up slab to thin crack, wires and small cams. From the top follow track through scrub across and down to Orange wall. 2B
