On the left-hand side of the shady wall is a popular venue with a good set of steep and mostly hard routes. The rock is a bit dusty and soft despite the traffic.

In the Pocket
A series of good pockets leads to a reachy (especially desperate for the short) finish. Crusty.

A superb eye-catching pitch via a series of crusty pockets that runs up the leaning wall. Eases with height.

Excellent sustained and fingery climbing up the ochre wall. The rock turns a bit dodgy towards the top.

More sustained and fingery climbing with some neat manoeuvres up the pale streak. Holds have come and gone.

The long (galena) speckled crack-line gives a couple of big pulls. Can be muddy early in the season.

More sustained, fingery (and dirty) climbing up the orange face right of the crack. The finish is tricky and often damp too.

The long groove line finishing via the easier wall above. This is a sport route that manages to feel like a trad route.
