The tall buttress of Nosferatu is the main attraction here although there is some good bouldering in the vicinity as well, both on the edge, and amongst the blocks below. To the right are some short, action-packed easier routes.

The narrow chimney gives quality thrutching to a rightwards exit - don't get stuck! Low in the grade.

The sharp arete by way of a dynamic leap. A great problem. The route continues to the top but nobody ever does.

The right-hand chimney-crack gets harder with height. Big fists, big cams and a chockstone all help along the way.

The crimpy wall, finishing at the break. Jump off.

The Knack
The hanging groove is desperate to access unless you have the knack. Easier once the first decent hold has been latched.

No Zag
Climb the flake as Zig-zag to the break then move right to gain and battle up the widening hanging crack - a bit full-on!

Unfinished Symphony
Tackle the short hanging crack by leaping into it from the blocks on the right. A short but action-packed battle is assured.

The Staircase
The steep stepped cracks just left of the arete are juggy with good runners and rests after a delicate start.

The steep groove is a bit of a strenuous tussle - bridging helps.

Climb the diagonal crack to reach the Pulpit. Finish direct via a mantel - much harder for the short.
