At the left-hand end of the main section of the face is the long diagonal gash of Clashooks Gully, a useful descent from the cliff top. To the right of this is a fine pillar and a broad slab, both home to a good selection of climbs across the grades though hard and scary ones out number easy and safe ones by quite a margin.
