A bevy of taxing and superb problems on the last bit of rock on the crag, fortunately it is the first section reached on the approach, so drop that mat and get going.

The slabby ramp on the front face gives a little gripper. The block and/or arete are out of bounds.

Chockstone Pull Up
3m. The block-choked crack doesn't really fit in here.

Climb the wall by pulling hard on a very slopy sloper, or crimp past it on the right (cheating some say).

The blunt arete is climbed, starting on its right side and spiralling round to the left where a pocket lurks.
