Climb up immediately left of the staircase, to a double bolt belay. The rock formations on this pitch create interesting options for protection.

Climb easily up the low-angle staircase jutting out from the lower wall, and continue directly up the wall above.

A superb and very exposed excursion. Begin up the rock staircase and continue rightwards up the trench to the top of the cliff. Good pro all the way. The bolt belay on Chocolate Coated Mammaries can be used to split the climb into two pitches.

Begin in the vague alcove right of the staircase, and head up and through the overhang just to the staircase’s right. Tackle the upper wall by trending left initially, then straightening up where the wall steepens.

A magnificently exposed combination. Start up Trenchtown and skip across onto Authorised Rockers above its crux.

Strenuous moves on huge brown chicken-head jugs through the middle of the lower wall, past six bolts. Double bolt belay above the overhang.

This and the following two routes are on the upper right end of the wall where an obvious cave can be seen. Climb the wall left of The Scribbler. Mix of trad and two bolts, one of which may be loose. A bit mossy in places.
