Trad  The First Gone 14m E5 6a New
The direct line up the Nosey Parker face. An eliminate but with a good deal of excellent independent climbing. Start as for Nosey Parker to reach the midway ledge. Arrange gear and continue directly on a variety of holds that could always be better. Trend slightly left at the top to finish close to The Last Retreat. Technically harder and more sustained than Nosey Parker, but at least you can contemplate a fall.

Trad  Nemes 18m VS 5a New
The direct line up the middle of the face. From the start of Pharaoh’s Face step diagonally right to join Main Wall (at its furthest point left). Climb direct to reach the highest heather ledge and a good thread, which protects the top crux moves. Low in the grade.

(Possibly done before, but independent enough to include.)
