Some excellent and different sport routes and a classic corner-climb with an intriguing name. Approach (see page 77) - From the buildings described on the main approach, follow the path up to the first large turn left, cross the fence and follow a path on the right that leads round to a promontory, with a large block and bolt belay. Abseil off here to access the routes. Guidebook page 84.
