The Gravestones offers some short technical routes and boulder problems mostly in the harder grades. The finest route here is Pretty Girls Make Graves. From the bridge made of railway sleepers (see opposite), carry on along the 4x4 track up to a small hidden hut (the second Climbers' Club hut). Continue on in a similar direction for a few minutes. The Gravestones area is visible to the left. Head left (looking in) and then back right down the vegetated ramp.

The Moose's Toothpaste
A great little problem up the layback feature. Head to a reasonable hold where the climbing eases.

A bafflingly-hard sequence via micro pockets to a sloping hold.

The only amenable line here. Start just right of a rib and climb up to a ledge. Move back up onto the rib and follow it to a...
