Trend left up the slab to the roof, a stretch gains easier ground.

Pizza Slab
The right-trending line across the slab is worthwhile but bold.

Scorpion Slab
The right-hand edge of the tilted block is approached by an easy groove. Its upper part is precarious and unprotected.

Hercules Crack
Climb the flake and continue up the wider crack above. It is about as strenuous as you might expect from its name.

Just right of Hercules Crack climb a tricky wall, on tiny holds, to a bulge split by a crack. Head right on slopers to a ledge,...

The Edale Trip
Lower meanderings lead to bulges then a ledge. The upper slab is the meat of the route, and is both bold and precarious.

A harrowing lead up the left arete. Gain it from the right and press on boldly! A dubious small cam is the only lifeline.

Climb the sustained centre of the wall to the left of the crack. Protection is adequate (small cams and wires) though fiddly.

Overhanging Crack
The wide crack splitting the wall is approached from the left up a thinner fissure. Awkward and thuggy climbing throughout.

Climb the left arete of the slab, starting from the left. The flake in the break that seesawed snapped years ago.
