The smooth wall to the right of the overhangs, with a large ledge in the middle where Yogi's Dream finishes. Start slightly right of centre and climb on big holds, with no pro. From the ledge move right to the corner to place pro, climb the wall beside the corner for a few moves, and then move leftward across the wall to finish on the left (wires near the top). Charles Sparrow, 1970.
Wet Dream 14 8m
The chimney and corner right of the overhangs. Purists can climb the chimney by easy bridging to the ledge five metres up, or otherwise climb over the large blocks. Then steeply through the undercut bit (crux) into the corner and bridge to the top.
