Sheltered

The left end of the main section of the cliff is a steep bay bounded on the right by a pleasant slab and rib a little further right. The hard, fingery routes here are sheltered, staying dry in light rain.

The flake on the side-wall is worth seeking out. Gain it from the left and finish out right. More direct variations are harder.

Better Late than Never
The slab direct on friction. It is delicate and protection is limited.

Angle Rib
Up the thin crack, then access the awkward hanging arete above by a loop to the right. More like 5b if done direct.
