[Blood, Berry Head, 2 kb]17m. Technical face-climbing up the appealing wall with a flowstone sheet at its base. Start at the short flowstone-wall. 18m. Climb to a block and move right and up to a small ledge. Step left and climb to the top. © ROCKFAX
Start about 2 metres right of the arete at the amazing flowstone feature. Climb up left of this to the detached looking block and then traverse right for about 1.5m to a crack. Move up to two slots one above the other and then step left and up to the ledge. Step slightly left again and climb up past shallow pockets to a flat hold and pull up onto this and then easily to the top.
