The hardest moves are low on the route, within the first 25 feet. Protection is excellent. Prepare for an enjoyable romp. Negotiating the perpetual wet streak higher up is usually easy but adds some adventure. Rope stretching a 60 meter cord will put you on a ledge to the left with inches to spare, gear belay. On busy South Side days this route is nearly always available.
Southender is at the left hand end of the South Side. Pass beneath Rat's Ass and keep going till you come to the end of the wall. The shallow corner above is Southender. Like the water streak, getting down is something of an adventure. The Ruby Tuesday/Irish Jig rap rings are 30 feet below the Southender ledge, but you can't see them because there is an overhang in the way. To get there you must down lead the obvious water groove on the right if you are facing out. It is easy and there is abundant gear. Keep in mind the down leader is placing gear to protect the second. Circle back under the Southender ledge and the rap anchors are head high. Double ropes to the ground.
