  Classic variant to Yes. Start up Yes and follow the seam (2 bolts for pro) to a strenuous mantle. Finish up the Yes groove.

  A Sunnyside classic, if a little bit scary. Climb up L of the nose. Grovel onto it, then face moves off the ledge and out L (crux) and into the V corner, exiting L under the summit overhang. You’re looking at a potentially nasty fall on the crux moves, otherwise adequate pro.

  Up the corner crack immediately R of Yes, sharing the same start. Finish up the wide crack immediately L of Overkill gully.

  A couple of variant starts (direct is a boulder problem 16) to the R facing corner. Worth a star when you finish on the upper Go crack (same grade).

  Good little problem through the roof between Hominoid and Overkill.

  A tricky start traversing on the polished slab from the R, then crank into the big corner. Good pro once you are in the gully. Watch out for a pendulum at the start if you’re toproping this – a good spotter will do the trick.

  Traverse in from Overkill gully to nice slab climbing; a couple of very marginal RPs for pro. They would probably rip out so treat this as a solo.

  First bolt placed on the Sunnyside protects the sharp, crimpy direct start to Sticky Fingers. .

  Long Beach has its first V boulder grade! An interesting and worthwhile boulder problem on the large boulder below Dicky Fingers. Climb the LH side of the slightly overhanging face on good crimpers to an interesting top out.

  Step off the balcony to the protectionless arete – was about grade 12 before some rocks were ‘persuaded’ off the first couple of moves many years ago.
