The first climbing is by the High Peak Trail that runs along under the crag.The left-hand piece of rock is a squat boulder which has some worthwhile problems. Further right is a tall narrow slab which is popular with beginners and groups. Although both bits of rock face south, they are usually shaded by the tree-cover.

Start as for Henry but climb straight up chipped pockets.

The curving arete in the centre of the slab is excellent. Use the chip on the left at this grade; without it is V6.

The flake line on the right of the slab leads to the top hold on the previous problem.

The low-level traverse can be frustrating.

The right-hand arete, on polished holds, leads to harrowing final moves; or an escape right.

The right-hand arete gives a hard hand traverse.
