A fine collection of lower grade climbs near the high point of the moor and with a superb outlook. This always used to be a great place to escape the crowds, though in recent years its reputation has spread and it can be quite busy.

Start at a notch in the overhang. Pull through the roof - hard - then climb the face above, a good challenge at the grade.

A proper eliminate up the right edge of the buttress. Avoiding the arete altogether is artificial and 5a.
