The first three routes are on a small crag south of the main crag and higher (above the trees).

Three bolts on the right side of an arĂȘte. Up to the first two bolts, then reach left and pull up on good small holds on the arĂȘte. Clip the third bolt and climb through to the anchor rings a few metres below the top of the cliff.

  Short route between Trinity and Romeo is Bleeding. Three bolts, finishing at the chains in the broken band. Unsure on grade (around 21, 22 mark?), who put this up? Feel free to update.
