Summary
6m. Zigzag up the next crack-line, an awkward little number.

Seconds
6m. Jam the crack to its end at the shelving break then swing left to access the continuation and jam on.
 VS 4c

Parallax
10m. Climb the left-hand side of the blunt arete. A runner on the right is a good idea and should really be placed on the lead.

Sticky Fingers
10m. The left-hand of a pair of cracks is of an awkward width, offering well protected exercise. Easier for the small handed.
 E1 5b
7
Widfa
10m. The right-hand crack is easier though it widens awkwardly with height. Exit left above the useful chockstone on good jams.

Sunstroke
6m. Climb the arete of the groove throughout, with a tricky initial mantelshelf. The groove can be bouldered direct at 6a.

6m. The narrow wall is eliminatish but worthwhile; a somewhat blinkered approach is best to enjoy it to the full.

8m. Follow the groove with a useful crack in its left wall to the edge of the hanging slab and pull over the roof to finish.

Delicate Wall
10m. Climb the slab leftwards to the arete and a finish over the roof as for Puffin without panting.

White Honkey
18m. Climb the slab then head for the edge of the roof. Above this escape or cross easy ground to thin cracks in the final...
