    Four new routes in Boya quarry, just right of Hells Bells & Mademoiselles, described from L to R.

    ** Special Forces (21, 18m)
    Start as for HB&M, but go right past RB, through cracked overlap, steep wall above, then finish with traverse left to ledge and lower-offs (crux). 4 RBs, plus small nut(s) between 1st and 2nd RB. There are some historical bolt holes near the end, by others. FA: Ross Weiter, Dena Rao, June 2016

    ** Full Metal Racket (22, 16m)
    Starting 3m R of SF, this routes features insecure footwork, large flakes and a devious top-out. 4 RBs to lower-offs. FA: Ross Weiter, Dena Rao, June 2016

    Dirty Blue S (20, 14m)
    Great moves but the top of this route gets covered in mud. It may be a good idea to traverse in from the belay of BMU and clean the top with a rag first! Named after the graffiti near the start, with a couple of puns built-in. 4 FH to lower-offs. FA: Ross Weiter, Dena Rao, June 2016

    * Big Man’s Underpants (19, 12m)
    Thought-provoking boulder moves. Don’t get sucked into the orange stuff on left, there is no need. 3 FH to lower-offs. FA: Ross Weiter, Dena Rao, June 2016
