Fridge-freezer Zawn

    Climb the right side of the left arête with a peg, finish on the right wall.

  • 12 - Suspended in Cryonics

    The wall right of Glenfiddich which is boundless in its complexities, has one bolt leading to a bolt belay.

  • 13 - 100 Pipers

    The deep corner on the right.

  • 14 - Cutty Sark

    Five metres to the right of the corner climb the V-shaped groove.

  • 15 - Lady Ice

    Farther right, past an impossible-looking wall, is an impressive arête, rising menacingly out of the rubbish tip. Climb this arête on its left side (peg and bolt).

    Climb the impressive arête on its right side with no gear; the in-situ gear on Lady Ice was placed tantalisingly out of reach on purpose!
