Downhill

This section of cliff occasionally suffers mudslides in the winter and as a result the routes can be dirty. The climbing here is definitely worth seeking out, especially on the upper sections, although the starts are tough.

Screw You Hippy
The best of the slabs has good orange rock. High in the grade and the start can prove to be a bit of a stopper.

Break right out of Aaron the Aardvark to an arete-hugging finish. A good route.
