The left side of the cliffs has some good climbs, the best of which follow striking lines, the superb long corner line of Satchmo being the prime example. Guidebook page 222.

En Passant Top 50
12m. The long groove in the left arete of the recess is a fine climb at the grade when clean. The top is often a bit grassy.

12m. The long groove that runs up the back left-hand corner of the recess is a good pitch and an impressive line at the grade.

16m. The arete is hard and worthwhile but will be so much better when it gets the finish it really deserves.
