Sheltered

A series of bold or very bold faces split by arduous wide cracks. Few of the routes see many ascents; they are either too scary or too much like hard work.
Approach (see map on page 520) - From the West Face walk left under the block that is home to Gaia, and just round the corner.

Curtain Call

Finale Wall Direct
From the upper slab stride boldly out right - exposed - and climb the pockets to the top. Not too hard, but very fluttery!

Finale Slab Right-hand
16m. From the upper slab stride boldly out right - exposed - and climb the pockets to the top. Not too hard, but fluttery!

Cybertron Mission
The bald, blunt, bold arete from the big flake - scary!

Lawyer's Chimney
The left chimney, finish rightwards by floundering onto the slab or direct HS 4b. The next route provides a continuation.

The polished flutes and pockets up the short face above the col between the west and north faces.

Our Kid
Bridge the gap then bail right to access the hanging slab. Climb this rightwards, then centrally and with no gear!

9
Slanted and Enchanted
From runners on the jammed stone, bridge out and swing left to gain pockets, the arete and a sketchy finish.

Jammed Stone Chimney
The chimney with the eponymous block is pretty much the expected battle, at half-height and again at the top.
