  10m to the left on The Little Big Rock is this short route. Face climbing to start, followed by steepening climbing on brittle edges.

  more easily found though. Short but quite steep, with good protection. Hardest at the start.

  Great moves. Like a good pop song, should take about 3 minutes. Follow the bolts left-wards through the roof to big jugs. Two-ring anchor.

  Struggle up the same start as Group Grope, then place protection and finish up the easy corner-crack. Shares GG's 2-ring anchor.

  Faint line up the wall leading to a low-angled corner. Boulder problem start past 2 bolts, and continue up the arete past another 2 bolts. 2-ring anchor.

  weak discontinuous crack running up through two horizontal breaks followed by a stack of bulgy ledges. The grunty start (about 20) is followed by an almost constant easing of the grade through to the top (about 12). Interesting natural pro.

  Starts on the undercut arete left of the Cattle Thief roof. Boulder up to a break, slightly easier moves over the first bulge to the halfway band, then follow jugs through the bulge above. Originally done with reputedly 'grim' natural pro, but later bolted. Anchor chains a couple of metres back and slightly right.

  About three metres left there's a route about which nothing is known, with a bolt a few metres up and its own chain anchor at the top. Whoever bolted it and climbed it originally remains un-known, Tony got stuck in, climbed and named it. Start below an old bolt above roof, just right of the "19" crack and to the left of the overhung arete. For maximum pleasure climb directly over the roof to the bolt using layaways, cunning and guile. From the bolt move left and up to the break before going right to a resting ledge. Finish easily up the wide crack above. Bolt belay/ lower off up and right.

  Over the roof start on the left and traverse above the man-eating blocks, then climb the left side fo the arete to a ledge and over the large roof.

  Boulder up the awkward black groove (crux) above the nasty pointy rock then left to a rest on the arete. Move R to the next ledge then L up the crack to the top of the pillar. Exit R or L. Copious pro higher up but the start is a serious proposition.

  Boulder up the steep black wall belong the main corner. Rest on the ledge, then commit yourself to the steepening corner with loose holds followed by the climactic loose juggy overhang. Exit L.
