Tombstone





1. Tombstone V7 
Start standing and pinch your way up the sharp arete. Only the edge is in - slopers back from the arete are out. Powerful and aesthetic. 

2. Buried Alive V8+ SDS https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_0vDJWnghcI
Sit to tombstone. Very difficult to start. (FA Nick Sagar 2001)

4. Paul Bearer V1 SDS
Same start as for Au Bouleau, climb straight up the crack and slab. Climbs very nice for the grade.

5. Au Bouleau V7 SDS
Two hands start on the obvious block, traverse the slopey lower lip until transitioning to the crack system and then climb straight up to the top. Excellent! (FA G. Loser 2002) 

6. Surgeon General V10 SDS
Starts with RH seam and LH good sidepull. Hup up ting crimps on the left face to a low percentage deadpoint to a flaring slot below the middle seam. TO as for Au Bouleau. (FA by G. Losier 2002)


3. Undertaker V6 
Go up the face left of tombstone all the way to the top. Technical crimping and footwork for the first section climbing the face. The crux is the last 2-3 scary moves on the insecure slopey arete to gain the top. (Long standing project, FA Luke Buxton 2013)

Lots of potential for new tripple coilers around these boulders.
