The short wall decorated with a selection of rusty blobs is always popular. The cracks here are all well protected and make good introductions to their grades. Further right is the impressive wall of Queersville bounded on its left by the old classic Hollybush Crack. The routes are all good quality hereabouts and the area is always busy.

Green Crack
The wide crack in the angular corner is fine when dry, though the final narrow chimney is always an awkward grovel.

The left-hand crack has a hard start using polished footholds and thin finger-jams. Although hard it takes good small wires.

The protectable and pleasant right-hand crack finishing up the short and easy chockstoned chimney above.

The centre of the wall is quite technical and has no protection. Variations to the right are easier (HVS 5a ) but inferior.

Oblique Crack
The crack that bounds the right-hand side of Rusty Wall. The lower section gives jamming past a wobbly chock. Finish easily.

Oblique Buttress
Teeter up the narrow buttress. Using either arete drops it to 4c.

The barrel-shaped buttress is tricky to start but soon eases.

Another one that eases once you get going.
