    “Xanthe”** gr14 25m
    At the right end of the slab there is a narrow South facing wall.
    The climb starts directly below the crack in the centre of the wall from
    a narrow ledge. Climb past a B.R.(hanger reqd.)to the arete then a balance move (crux)
    to reach the crack. Protection is small to medium cams and few larger bits for the crack.
    J. Nevin and M. Taylor. October 2014.

    “Pheasant Plucker” gr11 or gr13 30m or 35m
    An older rambling line on the right of the
    easy angled slab. Abseil down to the first or second ledge
    depending on the swell. The lower is a slightly harder line.

    Trend left along the diagonal cracks on either line then up
    through a steeper section with horizontal breaks.Continue
    straight up or move right to a large crack.
    Two ropes are useful owing to rope drag.
