On the left is the tall block with the desperate route of Unfamiliar up its front edge. This was known as Budgie Rock in days of old because of its profile when seen from the north. Of the other routes here Overhanging Wall is popular, and mild at the grade, whereas the Taurus, Pegasus, Valhalla trio offer good jamming.

A great route up the frontal arete of the tower. It can be started direct by a jump, or by leaning in from the left from a pile...
