The main feature here is the prominent 'fang' of rock, around which the routes Fang and Extraction weave. To the right is a cleft tackled by the route Striptease. Approach (see map on page 239) - From the carpark, walk along the road and take the track just past two manhole covers. Follow the track into the woods and take the right fork below Christmas Curry to below a vegetated gully. Scramble up this to the base of the routes. Either walk off left or abseil down Grim Wall. It is also possible to abseil off the tree directly down Striptease (but not if parties are climbing below you).
