Less steep than the neighbouring East Wall the South Wall has a useful number of easier and mid-grade routes, that get plenty of sun. Although the routes are not strenuous or particularly technical the lack of protection calls for a steady leader. Stakes in the top of the crag are very good for setting up a top-rope.
