The wall to the left of the Main Wall all the way to the large earth apron of Chocolate Blancmange Gully has been intensely developed with routes. Many of them have been excavated and consequently can be a bit dirty but they are cleaning up with traffic. It has an upper tier that has been peppered with routes of variable quality.
