The impressive back wall has some excellent face climbs and some gnarly cracks. On the far right is a good collection of easier climbs, ideal for raw beginners or children. The picnic benches in front of the wall get the sun even in mid-winter, which is nice! Guidebook page 341.

Excellent climb, though not surprisingly it has been well-glossed over the years. The crux is the upper crack.

The slab (of the last route) and long groove give a very pleasant pitch at the grade. Remarkably it isn't particular polished.

Slabby work leads to the tricky but short-lived rib. The lower-off is round to the left and tricky to reach.

So polished so you can see your face in it - desperate especially the final fluted cracks! The lower-off is on the slab above.
