Left Bay

Around to the left of the mainwall is a small, secluded wall in a bay 100m walk away. This gives several routes described from L to R:

Taylor’s Missing Rib (6a+) an easy wall to a ledge moving rightwards from the crack to a flying arete.

Lurcher (E1 5b) climbs easily up said crack but finish direct up the wall.

I Am Seb Grieve (7b) a direct version of Taylor’s Missing Rib. Unusual!

Hollow Man (6b+) tricky to below an overlap and a balancy exit to left-hand side of face. Black Matter (6c) from the ledge of the previous route, traverse right above the overlap to a mantel finale. Black Matter Direct (6c+) avoid the traverse right by tricky moves straight up. Still We Ride (6b) from the shared start moves right below the overlap to gain the fist crack and corner which has a poorer direct start at E2 5c.
