`A circular masonary fort'. Obvious crack in the centre of the wall. Start left and move up and right to the crack and the first pro, then through the roof (crux) and up the crack. Finish up stepped lichenous ramps and anchor to a tree further back and left.

A 70s route. Start higher and a few metres right up a corner to a small roof, which is side-stepped on the left. Finish directly (harder) or slightly left. Minimal pro.

Easy climbing to the slanting ledge (CD pro), move right a metre to the crack and up. Strenuous and technical. CD anchors. Lindsay Main '98

Start below the small cave and move up to the ledge, but then bridge straight up a crack to the headwall diamond with an angled roof. Up the wall and over the roof, slightly left to the top. Good pro though perhaps a bit subtle. Lindsay Main '98
Thrutch 12 7m

To the right of a small tube-shaped cave and around to the right on a ledge, then up the chimney. Murray Cullen '72

Somewhere near ‘Thrutch’ is a red wall with chicken heads on it. Climb the red wall without recourse to the arete on the left. At the top of the wall easier dirtier climbing welcomes you.
