The Stitch-Up Shindig (20)

Start a few meters left of The Magic Coins. Climb straight up to a crack though a dark bulge. Over this step left and pull up to the next mini roof with a layback crack over the lip. Head up to the final roof and pull through a V-slot to get to the top.

Beauty, Blood and Magic (27?)

Start on the tea ledge on the right of the Gendarme. Starting on the left of ledge, climb up the left side of the short, undercut section to a break. Follow the vertical crack to the wide rail below the roof. Conjure up some horizontal magic to negotiate the weakness through the roof to the good holds on the lip. Pull though and then left under the next bulge to a vertical break. Easily to the top. Consensus grading needed.

Fishnet Fiest (21)

Start up the break right of Sweet Transvestite to the ledge, pass the low roof on the left and then step back right and up grey rock to the large wedged block in the roof. Pull over this and up the bulging wall directly between Don’t Dream It and Frank N. Furter.
