The larger of the two spires, above the amphitheater, provides an easy route to the top where a DBC provides top toping of the overhanging faces.

The smaller, lower, spire is slightly harder to get to the top of. No anchors on this one.

Further up the valley, near the bridge, are the following climbs. Grovel up the chimney at the lowest end of the buttress, next to the bridge. Enter from behind the tree. To get down, grovel again!
