Great rock and superb situations plus delicate climbing up the rib that is the central feature here.
1) 4c, 30m. Climb the groove in the arete and the slab on the right to a good ledge and belays.
2) 5a, 45m. Balance up the bold arete to a ledge (possible stance) then climb the tricky crack that splits the arete and finish up the short wall above.
