This renowned buttress of tiered overhangs is home to the classic Banana Finger boulder problem and all its many derivatives. Bouldering mats are more common here than ropes! The two Monkey routes are nice beginners' climbs if the routes on the next buttress are occupied, but avoid using top-ropes if you can.

The face, trending left via a series of ledges. About as mild as they come, much used in descent and a decent beginners' trip.

Pull through the roof just left of the arete. Escaping right is cheating!
