  <climb id="46" name="Arete (project)" length="12m" fa="" extra="6 Þ" grade="20" number="18." stars="">Has been toproped - will be bolted. Will be quite ok despite proximity to routes L &amp; R.</climb>
  <climb id="47" name="Kangaroos and Dreams" length="12m" fa="Neale Smith and Bob Bull - January 2020" extra="6 Þ" grade="19" number="19." stars="**">First route on L end main face (South). Looks easy but offers solid resistance. It has been said that you can't live on kangaroos and dreams - hopefully you do!</climb>

  <climb id="49" name="Buena Vista Social Club" length="10212m" fa="Neale Smith and Bob Bull - January 2020" extra="65 Þ" grade="18" number="21." stars="**">Pretty much up the middle of the wall. Head for the squarish block sticking out from the top. A good selection of holds - most of which are not that good. Will keep you entertained until the final clip.</climb>
  <climb id="50" name="Invasion Day" length="12m" fa="Neale Smith, Bob Bull, Tony Mckenny &amp; Dave Stephenson - January 26th 2020" extra="65 Þ" grade="21" number="22." stars="**">Start up the easy crack towards R end. Stand on a small ledge in comfort and then fondle the smooth wall above. Surprisingly awkward move or 2 followed by easier, but potentially pumpy climbing to the top.</climb>
