A small collection of short but interesting buttresses with the projecting fin of Wrinkled Wall being the most significant piece of rock here. The grassy base to much of the cliff lends a pleasant air to the area.

K Kole Arete
Climb the arete starting at the big hole. Traversing in from the right is V4 6B unless you use the back wall.

K Buttress Crack
The deep slanting cleft to a taxing exit. A perverse affair. A steep Direct Start is 4c and misses out on some of the fun.

Wrong Hand Route
The leaning crack has a useful pocket and is well-named. A technical gem where forward planning will help.

Gain the ledge from the right then committing to the rounded bulges, trending rightwards. More interesting than it looks

Down to Earth
The elegant arete is tricky though the landing is fairly soft and there are runners if you need them (E3 6aâÄä).

The square-cut arete of the boulder - watch the exit.

The steep, left-slanting central crack in the front face feels pushy and is rather exposed.

Start as for Wrinkled Wall, but climb the face just to the left of centre and keeping to the right of the arete. Delicate.
