Marr's is the flat-fronted buttress with a prominent wide crack splitting its left-hand side. The Siamese Blocks are the vaguely similar twin towers further to the right, both capped with narrow overhanging blocks. They are home to several good boulder problems of the arete variety.

6m. Follow the flake to the roof then use a good hold to make scary moves out rightwards over the roof.

6m. Head up the shallow 'feature' by the green streak. Pull the roof direct, or sneak off right - tut, tut.

The left side of the left arete of the left-hand buttress is good.

The left arete on its right-hand side past a high pocket is better and scary too.

The slabby side of the next arete. Quality moves.

The arete on the steep side is a bit of a different ball game.

The right arete on its left side, though pockets round right help.
