Curved Crack Severe** and Quiver Rib Diff on the East face - interesing climbs which an even more interesting descent route. Not for the faint hearted!
Angela McGuckin - 16/Oct/06

You can also scramble down and left along the the ledge from the tree. Again, care required.
Jamie B. - 14/Jul/05

The dilapidated tree above Weeping Wall mentioned in the guide for abseiling off (as alternative to top pitch of Spider) looks well dodgy and totally unsuitable for abseiling. Best top out and combine with some great routes above.
