Cancer 13
Start as for Star Trek beside the tree. Climb the groove and over grassy ledges. Move carefully past a large flake into a steep V-corner. Pull up on blocks and exit straight up. Pretty useless. Lindsay Main, 1980
Star Trek 17
Takes the right-leaning corner and wall above. Near a small tree, climb a groove to a ledge, and step round right into the corner. From a grassy ledge move straight up over a small bulge (crux) and into a groove. Through another small overhang on to the top wall, tending left and then right. Lindsay Main, 1979.
Pulsar 19
The overhanging right-leaning groove. Swing in from the L, then up on jugs. Up over blocks. Step left to finish. Lindsay Main, 1983.
Terminator 18

On the right of Galactic Wall. Start at the weakness in the roof. Over loose blocks tending L and climb the steep wall. Tend R up the wall exiting on the grassy ledge. Pro availible when mostly needed.

Klingons on the Starboard Bow 18
A good route on the small north-facing wall wall to the right of Terminator with three bolts. Anchor rings. Joe Arts 1995.
Copernicus 20
Just left of the arête that The Tardis is on the right of. Scramble up to the ledge (anchor belayer with cams) and pull through on to the steep wall, moving left following the three bolts. It’s a little easier if you move back to the arête. Anchor rings. Joe Arts, 2005.
The Tardis 19
The prominent undercut arête just right of Klingons. Clip the first bolt and reach through the overhang to pull on to the wall. A pleasant finish to the right past another bolt. Joe Arts 1995.
Anti-matter 17
Just right of The Tardis.  Easily up the wall initially, to steepening climbing with good holds to finish. 3 bolts. Joe Arts, 2005.
