This wall is well-hidden from above but is worth a look, especially if it is blowing a gale since it is reasonably sheltered by the trees. The routes are only short although Crumpet Crack will be found long enough for most.
Approach - Scramble easily down a steep path which leaves the base of the main crag below Clashooks Gully.

Muffin Crack
The big roof is split by two prominent cracks. This route tackles the lesser left-hand crack.

Crumpet Crack
The central crack is a classic and crusty struggle but best to lay off the crumpets before you give it a go.
