Scary Canary
The line just right of the blunt arete becomes more harrowing with height, hence the name.

The Pinch
The right-hand side wall via a tiny ledge and the eponymous hold. Missing the pinch hold by a long dyno is worth f7B+.

Angel's Wing
Steep climbing that parallels the right edge of the wall without actually using it, to the final bulge of Angel's Wall.

8m. The left arete of the north face is accessed from round to the left and gives pleasant moves.

8m. Pad up the face and over the bulges a short distance right of the arete (use of which is taboo) to finish up the slab.

Route 3
The left-hand side of the south west face is juggy to the last move where an elusive pocket round the arete aids the finish.
