The stunning corner line that started it all off at Froggatt. Climb the left facing corner and slab, move left at the roof, then once you have gained the lip of the roof traverse back right. You can climb straight up to this point, at about one grade harder. Pull over the roof onto the right arete then move right again higher up and climb straight up the middle of the head wall. A sustained route that used to require a very strong head and calm nerves, now it has been re-bolted with an additional 4 bolts , it just requires strong arms.

Climb the vertical face just to the left of the Bonne Anne arete. Easy climbing but with a very different and existing finish (crux).

Climbs the arete and face above. Depending on where the chinks in your armor are the crux is either the power moves at the base or the delicate slab move at the top.

Climb the shallow groove. The crux is climbing out of the groove and getting established on the wall above, but don’t relax too much, the moves up the slab will still keep you honest.
