2) 5c,16m. Clip a peg above the ledge on the right and move up the wall and onto a hollow flake/ledge. Move up leftwards (peg), traverse left 1m and then head up the wall rightwards to a bolted belay in the horizontal band of pocketed rock.
3) 6b, 30m. Move up to a very thin crack (peg) and climb it to a ledge. Move up the wall above leftward (peg) and then on up the fingery wall past a peg to another on the left. Move up right and then left to a peg before reaching a break above, that is traversed left until the top can be gained or the bolted belay of Was it You? © Rockfax
