Towards the right end of the escarpment and beyond the cloak of ashes in front of the crag is a fine clean face having an obvious bulge at half-height and a straight crack running the height of the face on the left of the bulge.
Sunshine Factor : Afternoon Sun - West Facing Approach : 15 minutes Crag Angle : Vertical Face
Grade: VD First Ascent: (Pre-1991) Rating: Zero Stars Start just right of the gully below a left-facing flake at head height. Climb on to a ledge, then climb the flake and slab to the top.
(42) The Rib
Grade: HS 4b First Ascent: (Pre-1991) Rating: 1 Star - Start at a faint rib just left of the obvious crack of Wings. Climb the rib via a nice step up using a runnel.
Grade: VD First Ascent: -1974 Rating: 1 Star - A very pleasant climb. Climb the groove/crack immediately left of the overhang, with an interesting move at the overhang.
Grade: VS 5a First Ascent: (1975/Pre-1991) Rating: 1 Star - Start two metres to the right, directly below a horizontal slot on the lip of the overhang. Climb up to some blocks below the bulge. Climb to the overhang, then pull over on the horizontal slot and reach good holds to gain the upper wall.
(45) Winged Traverse
Grade: VS 5a First Ascent: -1975 Rating: Zero Stars Start up Pegasus and traverse right below the roof past the `eye` and finish direct where the break widens. A finish can also be made via the `eye` at a similar grade.
(45a) Golden Fleece
Grade: VS 5a First Ascent: -2001 - By: 2001 Feb 25 Calum Berry solo Rating: Zero Stars Start between Pegasus and Cyclops. Use a poor undercut on the right to reach a poorer sloper on the left, up to crimps under the roof, then up and over.
Grade: HVS 6a First Ascent: (Pre-1991) Rating: 2 Star - The first moves are very problematic, but the roof itself is relatively easy. Start below the small `eye` pocket above the lip at the right-hand end of the bulge. Climb the wall below and slightly right of the `eye` on poor holds to reach the horizontal break. Gain the eye and swarm up the easy face above.
Grade: VS 5a First Ascent: -2001 - By: 2001 Feb 25 Calum Berry solo Rating: Zero Stars Just left of Serpent, use an undercut to yard up to the midway break. Finish upwards.
Grade: S 4a First Ascent: (Pre-1991) Rating: 1 Star - Start just right of the right end of the mid-height bulge below a little, waterworn crack. Climb the crack steeply and gain the sloping crack above the bulge. Foot-traverse left with ease and finish up the centre of the top wall.
(48) Ronson Kirkby
Grade: VD First Ascent: -1974 Rating: Zero Stars One metre right of Serpent there is a good flake. Climb this to a ledge on the right. Climb directly to the next horizontal break and move left along this to the top.
