From the apex of the track heading up beneath The Jolly Cobbler Wall, continue on down for a further 3 metres to the right. Up to the twin pockets then rightwards to the glued on flake. Power over the bulgeon surprisingly good rock and padding easily up the arete to the belay rings.

Climb the pillar past two bolts and into the crack. Wires and cams to .75 until the crack closes then out onto the left wall. Clip another bolt then up to a hidden belay around the arete.

Climb the pillar past two bolts, move rightwards across the wall then straight up steepening terrain to fining on the same lichenous slab ab Teardrop Arete. It is possible to use the holds on the arete thereby dropping the grade to around 20.

Surmount the detached block where you will find a single bolt with galvanised chain link. You can belay from here (enough room on top of the block for two). At the top of the arete swing left onto the lichenous wall for an engaging finish.

Start from the top of the same detached pillar as for Teardrop Arete. Step rightwards across the abyss and upwards into the fist crack until surmounting the top of the detached pillar. Up and leftwards across the lichenous slab. Great quality rock.

Begin beneath Cornergeddon corner. Up past the bolt and easily along the ledge beneath the small tree. . Reach around left to a hidden bolt. Now slip along the base of this pillar and into a short fist crack. Up this onto the big ledge.

Bridge the corner and tackle the right wall around a big flake. Somewhat devious.

Strangely bolted on the lower section leading to a strenuous pull onto a ledge. Take an unlikely step out right onto the wall (don't worry the holds are there) and up.

Straight up the imposing corner on occasional crusty rock but awesome none-the-less. A punchy crux near the top.
