This small outcrop overlooks the village of Fore and its antiquities.

Salvage 50ft. S.
Start: 10ft. left of the edge of the outcrop, below the highest section of the rock.
Up over the bulge and continue until it is possible to traverse left for 5ft. and escape back right above the main overhang.

A low level traverse was also made, of about 100ft.

1974 VS?4c?(practiced on toprope)
Start as for Salvage,then from the bulge (overhead square block) move right under a flat roof (cams)to gain "the nose" of "the face"(small wire). Good holds in horizontal break and more small wires overhead then tackle the main roof head on with strenuous moves to top out taking care for loose rock.

Ancient Brambles Arête 12m V Diff 3c
Start at right end of the crag, 10M right of Salvage, and climb the Arête to a top pillar which can be slinged. The Arête becomes more obvious as it's climbed and would be more aesthetic with some gardening. Bad brambles at the top meant an abseil off the pillar leaving gear in situ.
