Grim Wall

** Grim Wall Direct E1 5b
Rinkrank variation start E2 5c Mike Lewis 29.7.2014
Up the normal start for a few feet before moving up leftward to the foot of the obvious leaning corner. Arrange some small wires in the corner crack and climb the wall on the right pulling into the shallow V groove which joins the normal route at the bulge.
An Argument Among Plankton E3
A new line to the right of GWD. Start as for Leg Break but climb wall on left and then slab. Pitch 2 finishes up obvious crack right of the finish to Grim Wall Direct
FA Jan 01 Iwan Jones, Clive Powell
Leg Break E3 5c
Needs cleaning?

Don’t miss the wide crack!
The Brothers VS 4c
** Brothers Direct E1 5b
Now fully clean
What Ever Either 4C or 5A
A new route (27.3.07). From the stance at the top of pitch 1 of The Brothers climb up towards a niche/overhang. Ascend the crackline and move leftward across a short slab to finish . A new starting pitch has been climbed making this an almost completely independent line. (Mike Lewis, Kev Davies 30.7.2012).Grade 4c or 5a ?. From the ledge at start of Shadrach take easy slabs up rightward to enter the corner of Carlo pitch 1. Up this for a few feet moving right to enter another corner with a fine black slab. Up the slab to the overhang. Pull up into the wide crack stepping left and laying away on the left edge of the crack. Belay immediately on top of the block using a good vertical crack. The second pitch is now directly above.
The Brothers Independent Finish
Could be under graded?
Oblatron E3 5c
Emily Street
Clean. E2 with high side runner otherwise feels like E4
Carlo E1 5b
Both pitches of this have now been cleaned (June 2012) . The line of the first pitch as shown on page 199 of the new guide is inaccurate.
Here is a better description of the route.
Pitch 1 Easy slabs up rightward to reach a large corner (possible belay). Up the corner and tackle the bottomless chimney which splits the overhang. Belay immediately with good wires in a vertical crack. (as for Whatever)
Pitch 2 From the right edge of the block pull up rightward and move up past a small tree to a small foot ledge in the brown groove (good nut). Pull up rightward and using an obvious undercut flake boldly make lay away moves to reach good holds in the final corner. Tree belay at a large ledge. An exciting pitch.
