  • Description 

    This area has shaded problems when the sun is out. Classic problems abound from V2 - V12. Some of them include: The Vulgarian (V2), Fight or Flight (V4), Walrus in a Blender (V5), The Hunger Artist aka Alf in a Blender (V6), New Religion (V7), and The Full Monty (V12).

    Getting There 

    From The Maze proper the Gunks are across the small meadow (walking further into the Spur), and up the hill towards the left. As this area involves some scrambling. It is better to consult the guide for step by step directions.
