Through the weak line on the blunt arete to a anchor shared with the route to the left.Three bolts to the anchor. Originally a trad climb during the FA, Mike Avard took a fallfrom the top moves onto a horizontal hex at half height. His belayer jumping back tothe path gave him a comfortable three feet from the ground!

Steeper than you'd expect but good holds up there. This line takes the face immediately left of the obvious chimney. Four bolts and well worth the outing.

Walk past the gully and back down on to the path, there are variations on the start of this route, so choose your own. This wandering route moves through the small roof and up over the arete moving left. Stick to the arete through fantastic airy moves and a run out finish.

This route is a variation of 'Surfs Up'. Start at the glue directly to the right of the start of 'Cosmic Baby', pull the roof past two more and move right to join 'Surfs Up'. A must do route and best at the grade at the Mount.
21 Surfs Up 17 22m
0
A wandering route that passes through the weakness in the roof from right to left.Long slings will help with the rope drag as you move right up the ramp on great holds. Move left again to the cleft in the rock and up to a shared anchor with Cosmic Baby, eight bolts. It has an easy but exposed finish.

The distinctive crack up the face and through the overhang. All trad baby til you clip the anchor of Scott's Climb. Legend has it originally sent in Mum's slippers!

Some would say the best route on the Mount. This outing is unmissable - just look for the six shiny ring bolts though the roof.

Brought a rack? This trad line takes the crack system to the right of Scott's Climb. It doesn't see a lot of traffic so maybe dirty at times, but good well protected bridging, finishing out left to Scott's bolt belay.

A bolted climb up the right wall of Big Fanny, an initial scramble up to the right side of the blocky overhang. Then pull over this on the right side and climb the wall past five bolts. A grade easier if a rest is taken bridging across the gully to the right. DRB Belay.

This balancey route requires a little less grunt and more finesse than the last offerings.Protected by five bolts, start from the broken ground and move up keeping right of the seam to a DRB.

Takes the centre of this face and shares a DRB with #25. A high first clip, use your feet on his delicate number past three bolts.
