A bit of an eliminate, but with some good moves and low in the grade too.
1) 6a, 25m. Climb Lyme Cryme for a few metres then move diagonally left across the wall to a bulge. Continue above to join the traverse of Delicatessen from below and belay on the right. The peg is good and can be backed up with a cam. The direct start is loose and dangerous.
2) 6b, 30m. Follow Brown Donkeys (page 350 ) to the bong and then step right and up to 2 old bolts. Make superb moves up then out left into, and out of, a scoop (a small cam above and left of the left-hand bolt provides a good back-up). Join Debauchery above and follow it left to finish.

Back-up Friend on pitch 2 is above and left of the left-hand bolt. The route is well worth doing.
