Rotund for Success V4
Start on the huge undercling. Pull on & follow a series of slopers up then left to the arête. A sweet little problem.

Rotunder V4
Start as for Rotund For Success, but once through the bulge pull right into the crack & exit up the slab.

Über Rotund V7
A quality low start to Rotund For Success. Start in the cave on a couple of sidepulls. Double take with the left hand to an edge adjacent to the starting undercling on Rotund For Success. Now finish up this.

Über Alles V8
An eliminate but a tricky problem all the same. Start as for Uber Rotund, but from the good edge crank right (staying below the crack line) to some small flakes. Grab the good gaston edge & mount the bulge.

Übermensch V10
‘Jerry’ start on the big undercling beneath the bulge. Slap around the bulge to the small flakes, and exit straight up (ie. the same exit moves as Uber Alles).

Huck V4
Pull on using the obvious lightening bolt edge & another small edge, then campus up & right to a good sloper. Exit on jugs.

Tension V5
A real low ball. Start at the extreme right end of the low lip, feet under the roof. Traverse left along the slopey lip & finish by rolling up onto the slab using the monster jug.

Crème V3
The low slopey arête. Sit start, make a big move up & right to the remnants of a sloper. Rock left to a good hold then exit up the slab. Easy now the sloper is a jug.

Crema V6
Start as for Crème. After the first move, match the arête & traverse right under the tree to the base of the hanging red groove. Exit up the groove on edges & big fat slopers.
