The large slumped block that sits in front of the edge is the last bit of the cliff to be described. Its front face has some good precarious slab climbs, and the slightly gritty texture means the routes are a little more harrowing than they look. A spotter is useful/essential depending on your outlook.

The slanting arete gives a pumpy uphill hand-traverse.

3m. Tackle the awkward slanting crack. Solid at the grade.

The left-hand side of the main arete, resisting the temptation to move round onto the slab.

Boldly climb the left arete of the slab on the front face. A Direct Start is nearer V2 (5c).

The bold and precarious centre of the slab. Not too difficult, but the rock is just a little crusty - take care to to the top.

The right arete of the slab has an awkward last move.
