A short slabby wall set into, the eastern slopes of Meelmore, directly facing Bearnagh Slabs, giving some good introductory climbing. Below and to the right of this there are a few slabs which can be climbed at around VD. The two routes below are right again on a small buttress about 300m north of the Bearnagh/Meelmore col and right of the first large area of scree.


Queasy 25m S 3c T. Hawkins, D. Mageean. 14/10/87. Start - 2m left of Quasimodo. Attack slab using pock, then move up to 'loose' boulder, which is passed on its left side. Continue up cracks to the top.


Quasimodo 25m S 4a D. Mageean, T. Hawkins. 14/10/87. Start - at the north end of the face. Move up steep slab, on good holds to large shelf. From right-hand end of shelf move up shallow crack (delicate and poorly protected) to overhang surmount on dodgy flake and follow right edge and crack system to top.
