Lots of long, sustained wall climbs and some mean roofs are the main ingredients of this section of crag.

What Gives, My Son?
23m. A disjointed crack-line.

Climb the straightforward wall to a final steepening. A hard sequence gains the lower-off.

Full Fathom Five
The steady lower wall gains a difficult and bouldery finish.

Bad Moon Rising
An impressive pitch up the blunt arete which gets harder as you get higher. Can be dusty and the first bolt is high.

A Ship Load of Moonies
A fine pitch moving right from the start of Bad Moon Rising and finding a surprisingly easy way up this steep wall.

Dead by Sunset
Very sustained climbing which overhangs all the way. There is a difficult step left onto a shelf near the bottom.

A route of two sections, pumpy low down and a technical headwall. At present it is a bold lead and deserves E6.

Another pumper with a delicate yet powerful scoop high up. Good climbing, but it can be dirty.

The Lost Buoys
A 7a first half leads to desperate crimping up the leaning rib to reach an easier crack to finish. Needs cool conditions.

No Survivors
Worthwhile climbing which is spoilt by a rest at half-height. Can get dusty at the top.

A Meeting of Minds
A massive roof test-piece at the bottom makes this one an unusual outing. A big half-height rest is the reward.

Lip Service
Great rock and a swing left on the lip of the roof provide the fun.

Bermuda Triangle
Start as for the last route, but climb straight over the bulge and up the lovely grey slab. Super climbing on great rock.

A Bird in the Hand
A crimpy lower wall leads to an easy upper slab. A bit unbalanced, but great rock.

Hasta La Vista
A fine steep start leads to a good slabby finish, but unfortunately it is spoilt by the big ledge in between.
