This wall probably contains the best quality rock in the Dale; clean and compact with only a few loose patches. It has sport routes from 6c to 8b and a few excellent trad challenges, less seepage than other buttresses and is shady until late afternoon in summer. Guidebook page 166.

A desperate direct line through Offal. The crux roof (above a hands-off rest) requires some nasty moves.

Less good than the line would suggest. Gain the hanging groove and layback up it to easy ground and the trees above.
