Located on the right-hand arête of a short wall on the left side of the crag. Make a few moves to reach the horizontals, continue up the arête or move into the middle of the face and go straight up (harder but cooler). FA team unsure of grade.

Around the corner from Leftovers, use the detached block behind you to get onto the face, then up the arête using sidepulls and small gear, finishes up the same final crack as Leftovers.

Start just left of Black Dog at the far left side of the wall, mantle onto the ledge ~ 8’high, follow the left-facing dihedral to the large ledge, and take the hand crack to the top.

At the left end of the right wall. Climb into a right-facing dihedral and follow to a cave. Move right and climb the finger crack in the overhang to ledges. Finish up a pleasant corner.

Start in the pod right of Black Dog and make some tricky moves to a ledge (crux). Follow the crackline over a surprisingly awkward bulge to another ledge and finish up a fine jamming crack. [ Note: before leaving the pod, it's a good idea to protect high with a small cam.]

About 4 metres right of Black Dog. Climb a crack to an overhang and step left into a great looking left-facing dihedral which is climbed to the top.

The bulging hand/fist crack in the centre of the wall just right of Backdoor Man. [SC Note: Good route, but six ain't six, that's for sure Jimi!)
