    We went to the grind for a bit this evening and added 3 new routes me and Paul had never even noticed before!

    First 2 were on North Nose area near Little Secret.

    Bottles and Barrels HS 4c 18m
    Start as for Little Secret then break out right using the flake (crux). Traverse right 5m then continue up the clean corner.

    Alpaul Crumble VS 4b
    Climbs the vague arête between the chimney and corner of Little Secret. Start just left of Little Secret and swing out onto a small ledge. Continue directly following the arête.

    Both these routes were good fun and well worth doing, although not worth a star as the first gets quite easy after the start. The second is escapable to Little Secret, but nice moves.

    The last route was brilliant fun and might not look like a great ‘line’ from the top, but is actually the logical route up this wall. It is on Crystalocean Wall and climbs through the V-notch and out onto the slab, finishing at the same place as Crystalocean.

    Inverted Little V HVS 5b 15m *
    Climb the diagonal crack and slab through the inverted V-notch and pull round onto the slab. Climb the left of the slab direct.

    Nice one. I hadn’t realised there was any space left, but clearly nor had you until you spotted the potential 🙂

    Plenty left to do there, just tend to be hard and bold stuff. These weren’t either which was surprising.
