The low-level cave and steep walls to its right provide more good technical routes. The rock is generally excellent and Ivy League is well worth tracking down. The wall is sheltered but can seep after prolonged rainfall. It is possible to climb in light rain.

A dynamic link-up that exits steeply from the ground-level cave and up the steep headwall.

The best of the bunch. A really good pitch starting up the overhanging pocketed wall to the right of the cave. Dynamic moves...

Intense fingery climbing is needed to reach the small overhang. A worthwhile route.

Nice moves up the wall end in a technical sequence in to the open corner. Above the corner care is needed with the rock.
