Most of this area is on the platform underneath the eponymous crag. It's a complex jumble of blocks, but very compact and not too difficult get to know. All of the problems are worthwhile and landings are generally good. If the platform is wet it can be unbelievably slippery - take care. The descent path drops you right at the top end of this area

Yellow Desert Scream
The highball arete climbed on the left with an awkward top-out is a St Bees' classic. Sees many attempts but few successes....

Traverse the break left to right, finishing up the arete. The arete itself can be climbed directly on it's left at V1.

A baffling problem which pulls onto the slab directly.

Problem 4
A better and easier version which pulls into the small groove from the left, and actually has some holds.

The superb arete, climbed on its right-hand side, manages to be both powerful and precarious.

Gain the pod powerfully and follow it insecurely to top out. The standing start is worthwhile at V3.
