Sheltered

A fine and popular section of the cliff with a sunny aspect, short approach and excellent set of routes across the grades. Often busy to very busy in the season.

And now for something completely different
The big chimney is well-named. Straightforward, if you like the style, apart from clipping the belay and stripping the gear.

Nice and varied - weave about a bit for the easiest line.

The pull onto the upper slab is tricky - lateral thinking helps.

There is a fingery little pull early on and one awkward move to access the final slab.

A steady slab leads to a few steeper moves and an awkward finish.

The over-bolted slab leads to steeper moves through a niche then a sharp grey wall trending right to finish.

The short hanging arete is sharp and unsavoury.

Climb the first grey streak on the wide red wall. The flake on the left at the start is a bit suspect.
