BETA PHOTO: Silent But Deadly - start on the prominent dihedra...


This route is pretty fun and deserves a little more traffic. It starts just right of Top of the Pops. This climb is slightly run-out on easier jugs.

Climb a fun low angle dihedral with hand jamming past wide pods up to a short finger crack and juggy, run-out face above on the arĂȘte, easier climbing past a horizontal (purple or green Camelot).

Easy to start this route in the clean right facing dihedral (On the Side) just to the right as well, this is also fun and 5.7 fingers.


A light rack of nuts and cams, fingers to hands with extra fingers. Trad anchor with a variety of options, easy to wrap a boulder also.

Walk down southeast longer or faster down climb the low angle cracks/chimney to the northwest, just right of this climb.
