The magnificent Eliminates Wall, one of the most intimidating bits of grit around, is home to arduous crack climbs from the 50s and desperate face climbs from the 70s, 80s and 90s. Apart from for The Peapod, queues are unheard of!
Approach (see map on page 405) - From the gate at the start of the green drive follow the track for 450m then slant left to reach the edge of the Eliminates Wall, descend here.

The Left Eliminate
The left-hand crack is short and 'ard. Maybe the same grade as Toy, but sees a lot less attention. Gaining the narrower upper...

The Zone
Climb the smooth wall left of The Peapod by desperately fingery climbing. Protected by a cluster of skyhooks.

The Peapod Top 50
Mega-classic. A short slippery crack leads to the base of the pod. Back and foot up this to a difficult exit. Arguments abound...

The blunt right arete of The Peapod is sustained, unprotected and, except for the obvious method, inescapable!

A well-named impressive face climb between the two cracks. Passing a runner early on, climb the face on crimpy finger-holds to...

Do this and Great Slab (in a pair of pumps!) on the same day to get a measure of the skill of the Master. An exhausting...

Climb the slim groove immediately left of Linden, crossing rightwards past another groove to finish up Linden.

Linden
Brilliant face climbing, despite the drilled holds. Make a very hard move to leave the block and gain the dodgy flakes. Then...

The Grey Area
Start as for Linden. From the nuts, climb diagonally right to gain Hurricane and some more gear. Continue direct.

Climb the incipient crack left of the shallow groove (low side-runners) and then the mighty bold wall above. An enigma that has...

Still a gripper but less so than when it was graded E2. Climb Scroach to below its jamming-crack then teeter left to gain a...

From the tip of the tombstone, make a baffling (6a until sussed?) step round left into the shallow groove which takes small...

The wide crack is a good warm-up for the Eliminates if you squirm it, and it might just make you change your plan for the day....
