A small collection of short but interesting buttresses with the projecting fin of Wrinkled Wall being the most significant piece of rock here. The grassy base to much of the cliff makes for a pleasant setting. There is also some bouldering on the collection of blocks, aretes and boulders to the left of the fin.

K Buttress Crack
The deep slanting cleft to a taxing exit. A perverse affair. A steep direct start is 4c and misses out on some of the fun.

Wrong Hand Route
The leaning crack has a useful pocket and is well named.A technical gem where forward planning will help.

Gain the ledge from the right then commit to the rounded bulges, trending rightwards. More interesting than it looks.

Dead Mouse Crack
The steep, left-slanting central crack in the front face feels pushy and is rather exposed.

Start as for Wrinkled Wall, but climb the face just to the left of centre and keeping to the right of the arete. Delicate.

The mildy wriggly crack on the right-hand side of the face has a useful chockstone at about half-height.
