1 Little Slab VE
0
Several short, easy routes exist on the left-hand side of the west wall. Choose your own line.
2 Big Slab VE
0
Straight up the middle to the high point. Do not use the edge on the left. Now try without using your hands!
3 Undercling Arete VM
1.02
Pleasant climbing on the arete. Head up the little alcove, using good side-pulls, to the ledge. A big undercling on the left takes you back onto the arete and easy climbing.
4 Orange Wall V0
0
Up the middle of the face, using small edges to a side-pull. Do not use the left edge or better holds further right. Continue straight up past the horizontal break.
5 Slap Attack V6
0
Requires absolute commitment. Start with hold 1, get your feet up and dyno for 2. Has been done by short and tall people.

6 Little Crack VE
0
Climb the groove and crack, then continue to the top of the rock.
7 Bridging ArĂȘte VE
1.02
Climb the pillar. A sit start adds a grade or two.
8 Bridging Boulders Traverse V2
0
Traverse the wall. Without bridging. Normally done right to left, but can be done in the opposite direction.
9 A Bridge Too Far V4
0
Traverse about 50cm below the major line of positive holds.

10 Unnamed V1
0
Up the middle of the steep face. Once at a vague ledge a committing move leads to a good incut. Do not use the right arete. The proximity of the other wall makes the landing quite bad.
11 Unnamed VE
0
Climb the short, smooth wall at the left end. Pleasant climbing but the landing is broken: take care.
12 Unnamed VE
0
Climb the left side of the main wall.
13 Unnamed VM
0
Climb the right side of the wall.
14 Bridging Route VE
0
Quite fun. Bridge up between the two rocks. Generally easier to start on the northern end of the corridor (where the rocks are a bit closer together) and move up and seaward. When you can't bridge any further, push yourself on to the left wall and finish up route 13.
