On the very left of the Right Buttress. Climb the wall trending left under the overhang to the crack. Up past gorse to gain a ledge (crux), and then up the arête. DBA

Start from the same point to a thin crack on the right side of the arête. Easy climbing on to the wall, where the flaring crack provides protection with small offset wires. Gain the horizontal break (cam) and finish up the arête to a two-ring anchor.

FC Falcon Crack 15 20m

The obvious cleaned crack in the middle of the face. Up steeply with bridging to the right, and on past several bushes as the angle relents. DBA (on E2)

Starts just to the right up the broken arête. Higher up the climb moves on to the face, picking up reasonable gear all the way. DBA (E2)
