A smooth green slab that was quarried long ago. It has a trio of technical slabby wall climbs. To the right is a dank sidewall which gives shade in the summer but is best avoided at other times.

Och Aye Wall Indirect
Just right of the arete, climb the wall on tiny polished holds to a ledge at 10m. Move to the centre of the wall to finish.

Och Aye Wall Direct
The centre of the wall has a hard start, which is especially so for the short. Once the first runner arrives, it eases.

Just out from the corner is another worthwhile line. Once again it has a hard start and a fluttery upper section.

Capstone Gully
The main angle to a tight exit. Better than it looks!

Slime Crack
The green crack in the wall is always a slippery struggle.

The right side of the wall moving left. Will probably need a clean.

Byne's Crack
A fine long groove gives an awkward pitch, large gear helps. At the top, escape off left or finish up the steep juggy rib.
