A great, varied route that starts out with some long reaches and goes into some akward, but fun movements at the top that really make you think. Stay to the left of the bolts on the large rail. Going to the right in the water groove is technically off route although you can clip the bolts from there.

Really contrived. The start is good, but staying out of the gully at the top is unnatural and silly.

Very contrived, but a fun route if you play along

there's no reason to climb this if you plan to escape into the gully at the top, it's quite fun and interesting otherwise
