Downhill

The Downhill Spiral Area routes start from a raised grass bank beneath heavily-stained black walls that are prone to seepage in the winter.

Fatal Fibre
Start from a bolt-belay. The wall is followed with a hard move at the start to a lower-off on the right.

Billy Bob's Way
Start from the bolt-belay of Fatal Fibre. Climb the prominent blackened-streak directly by pleasant, sustained moves.

The Man Who Wasn't There
Climb steadily up the wall to reach the left-hand side of the arete. Continue up this until a swing up and right onto the face...

A fine, technical groove experience with one very hard move, but there are also a few rests to compensate.

Good climbing up the yellow groove. It requires some wide bridging moves before the nifty finish.

Run-out and pumpy but the best climb hereabouts.

More Than a Legend
A desperate technical sequence up the thin wall leading to a faint crack and more hard moves to the belay. Friable low down.

Surprisingly sustained climbing up the right-hand side of the flowstone. A friable lower wall.
