6Sizmatic5+The wall above the start of the leftwards diagonal vein via pockets.
7Free Bandits6B+Left of the small oak tree in the break are 3 vertical veins, climb directlyup between the two left hand veins to a crescent hold running down from the break. Desperate.

10Deep Slot Dyno6AAn obvious slot at 6 ft can be used for a massive dyno or a desperateface move using a small corner edge to the break.
11Thread Hole5Start just to the right of an obvious vertical vein with what used to be a thread hole 6’ up the wall. Finish at the break.
12The Ramp5+A left sloping corner ramp is used to gain a hold on the bulge above and a small break helps the main break to be reached, pure smearing turns to hard face moves.
