The upper wall, to the left of the central wet streak, has a number of creaky E5s plus a few sport routes. It is sunny and reasonably sheltered but there is some seepage on the routes to the right.

Cadenza/Commorient
The best route on this area of rock. Climb the tree and teeter out rightwards onto the wall and climb past the first lower-off...

The Moon's Apprentice
The rounded arete is a little too near the wet streak and has some dodgy rock.

A neglected route. Start right of the tree and follow the line of bolts to the roof and a wild finale.

Rive Gauche
Teeter up rightwards from the ledge to the first of three bolts. Climb past these then continue direct left of the wet streak.

An impressively positioned climb. Follow Rive Gauche but cross the wet streak to join the finishing rib on Free and Easy.
