The short wall left of Steeple. Follow the crack system heading right to left up the wall. Poor pro. Phil Stuart-Jones '97 (solo)

The L-hand of the two leaning grooves. Adequate small holds but no pro. Use a nut high up in Bleeder to avoid a serious plummet.

The R-hand groove. Adequate holds and some pro at the top. C Griffiths '71
Bleeder 15 6m
The prominent crack. Good jams and useful holds. Excellent pro. Sustained. C Griffiths '71
