There are only about 20 routes here, and the best of these are in the mild Extreme range, but the competent can tick all of the appropriately graded climbs in a couple of hours, or less. The best routes tackle roof features on the two largest buttresses, although there are also decent lines to be found on the clean walls and aretes.
