Start just right of Mis-spent Youth and climb straight up the steep wall over a small roof (good gear just above) and into a groove. At the top of the groove make a committing move move right to a rest below a small bulge. Continue up to a ledge and finish more easily to a single bolt. Good protection except at the move right, which is runout and a bit scary. .

Start as for WAFTT. Climb to the first bolt but then go left and climb the insipient leftward trending crack past a second bolt to a good rest and a third bolt. Step right and climb the bulging face past the fourth bolt. Finish up easier ground to a single old bolt on top of the crag.

An overhanging corner with stepped roofs above the Matterhorn boulder. Pull on to the ledge and climb the corner; then move left to a small ledge. Tricky move to the last bolt, then up slightly left to finish at the lowest point. Unfortunately this is the last route on the crag to dry.

An eliminate line between American Dream and Speights Race, with good strenuous climbing. From the top of the ochre coloured block climb the initial wall past two bolts to the large roof. Go slightly right, then back left to the third bolt, which is out of sight around the nose on the left. Go straight up to a fourth bolt and a high step onto the steep head wall above. At the fifth bolt finish direct (steep and fingery), or alternatively above the fifth bolt move left to the top of the groove.

Overhanging route left of the cave, partially prepared by Simon Courtois. Start at the yellow boulder and haul up over the roofs on good holds, moving slightly right to finish. Great cranking. The abseil chains have good access from the top, but tend to land you in the elderberry. .

Start on top of the yellow lichen-covered boulder. Pull over the roof (second bolt to the right) and up to a detached book-like flake. Finish up the easier groove above. Three bolts plus cams. Anchors to the right (for Southern Exposure) are not well placed for cleaning.

Start at the very right end of the yellow lichen-covered boulder. Cross the roof at its widest part and continue up a blocky looking wall with good holds to the final bolt and a tricky exit. Good fun - this is how sport climbing should be. Two-ring anchor. The belayer may wish to tie to the elder tree to avoid being dragged into mud or nettles. Now missing its third bolt, which just sort of exploded out of the wall during a fall apparently.

Takes a line left of Southern Exposure, swing out left onto reasonable holds, continue gymnastically over the roof and up small holds to get to a jug at the fourth BR. Move up and over the roof to finish at the belay of SE. .

Start down by the nettles below a large roof resembling an inverted staircase. Move easily up to clip the first and second bolts to the more strenuous, technical climbing and a good hold at the third bolt. Weave your way around on good holds past the next two bolts to exit through an obvious notch. Five bolts. Two bolt anchor with chains above.

Start at the edge of the cave just left of Big Girls Blouse, below and right of the first bolt. Move diagonally up and left past the first bolt to the second. Climb straight up the wall to the roof, then move left, up and back right over the roof to finish. The anchor is on a block up in the grass about five metres back. Four bolts. .

Just right, at the right edge of the overhangs. Start as for the next route, but move left (committing) and follow four bolts up the wall and through a small roof (either left or right of the fourth bolt) to a lowering bolt. There's also an abseil station above. .

The right-facing corner a metre right of The Big Lebowski. A bold start on good rock to gain the crack is followed by easier climbing, with a steeper finish up the crack to TBL's anchors. Natural gear.

Impressive line finishing up the high prow. Step carefully up and right to the second bolt (run-out), then move leftward past the third bolt. The route steepens above the fourth bolt, with tricky moves on to the "Pizza-eating Ledge", left of the fifth bolt. Climb up and step right for the move to the chains at the lip. Seven bolts, and abseil chains.

In the centre of the brown wall is this direct route over a small roof and up a steep headwall. Hard pulling over the roof, then a rest before a steep exit on the upper wall. Four bolts and a mid-sized cam under the roof. Lower off a single bolt, or anchor at the next route's chains. Dave Shotwell, 1998.

A couple of metres right of "Noises That Old People Make". Start in a shallow corner and climb past the 1st bolt then over a slight bulge to the 2nd. Easier climbing follows until it steepens up to the left of an obvious small block. Still a bit loose above the 2nd bolt but should scrub up well with more traffic. Double anchors.
