Sheltered

The walls and grooves to the left of the Pool have a fine set of middle grade routes that follow strong natural lines and are sheltered. Three Tree Climb, Pulpit Groove and Great Harry are thrilling outings. For something a little more taxing Suspense takes a trip above the water and getting on Pool Wall increases the likelihood of a ducking.

The short groove past a useful jutting flake. Often a bit grubby.

Austin's Variation
The flake and corner above the start of the Ordinary (possible belay below it) give a short and strenuous pitch.
