(13) Wrinkled Slab

Grade: VD First Ascent: (Pre-1991)
Rating: 1 Star -
Start below the steep corner at the left end of the wall. Climb the corner until it is possible to step rightwards on to the wrinkled slab. Move right and go up the edge of this.

(13a) Raddled Slob

Grade: VS 5b First Ascent: -2000 - By: 2000 Oct 4 Karl Lunt solo
Rating: Zero Stars
Start under the slab of Wrinkled Slab. Use hidden holds on both sides of the big prow before committing to small holds on the slab itself. An awkward pull over gains the slab and easy ground. A prior ascent of Wrinkled Slab definitely helps in locating useful holds!

(14) The Flake

Grade: VD First Ascent: (Pre-1991)
Rating: Zero Stars
One metre to the right is a jammed block at ground level below a flake. Climb up to and past the flake.

(15) Pot Belly

Grade: S 4b First Ascent: (Pre-1991)
Rating: Zero Stars
One metre right, climb the rounded buttress via a bulge to a vegetated crack finish.

(16) The Barrier Roof

Grade: S 4a First Ascent: -1974
Rating: Zero Stars
Start immediately left of the barrier roof. Climb a left-facing flake and the wall above just right of an ash.

(17) Roof Route Left

Grade: VS 5a First Ascent: (Pre-1991)
Rating: Zero Stars
Climb the roof at its left side to a good jug above the lip.

(18) Roof Route One

Grade: HVS 5b First Ascent: (Pre-1991)
Rating: Zero Stars
From an undercut at the back of the cave, surmount the roof past a short crack and a jug on its lip.

(19) Roof Route Two

Grade: VS 5a First Ascent: -1974
Rating: Zero Stars
Climb through the roof via the next crack, which forms a block at the lip.

(20) Roof Route Three

Start from an obvious undercut at the back of the roof, then climb over the roof using a pocket on the lip.

Grade: VS 5a First Ascent: (Pre-1991)
Rating: Zero Stars
Climb the roof at its right side, using a large flake jug on its lip.
