Incursion5c7mA continuation of Border Dispute finishing on good holds below an overhang.

First two problems in the cave to the left of Second Helpings

Cave Crack5c10mTraverse the crack in either direction.
No More Monkey Business6b10mTraverses the pockets left to right on the wall of the cave. Finishes up and right strenuously.

Next two towards right of sector

Blow You Away6b7mThe A short but technically difficult problem up the bulging face 10m right of Pulp Friction. The face is ascended using a series of desperate slaps between poor holds until it is possible to make a nose‐grinding mantel at 2/3 height. Finish up the short wall above.
Keeper Of The Flame6b5m/cThis problem takes the right hand end of the huge bulge without suing the short, vertical crack to the right of the boulder. The aim is to reach a hidden jug about 18 inches above the level of the thin break. This can be achieved using a poor selection of crimps, monodoigts and undercuts. At the jug, jump off or choose your own finishing line.

Tigani North

Face Dance6a10mTraverses the overhung area to the right of Serenity on pockets and crimps.

Lost Worlds

This is a small bouldering venue around 150m east of the last turn off for Ayia Napa on the road towards Protaras. It is a viable area for some evening bouldering, especially in the summer, as it tends to be quite shaded and cooler than the main crags. However, be aware that the area is quite overgrown, and there is no guarantee that the local farmers will not object to you being there. You have been warned. Just past a house on the left hand side of the road leading to Protaras is a deep, vegetated gully. The walls of this gully average 6‐8 metres in height and the most prominent feature is a tall, hanging arête.

‘Bleau Out5c8m Climbs the short, dirty, vegetated face on the left hand wall.
A U 1 Sum ‘Bleau5c8mAt the furthers recess of the gully, on the right, is a short, overhanging face, left of a crumbling overhang. Take the face direct. The name comes from a Steven Segal film called ‘Marked For Death’.

The following routes are on the right hand side of the gully.

Lost Innocence5a6mClimbs a groove on the right of the arête.
Ground Zero5c6mThe bulging wall just right.
Grace And Danger5c6mThe bulge and scoop right again.
Zimbambaloomba5c6mThe blunt, hanging arête via a painful hand jam.
Paradise Lost5a6mThe short wall around the corner.
Lost World6a15mTraverse the head‐height holds from Lost Innocence and finishing up Zimbambaloomba.
