/ Curiosity regarding routes on Great Wall, Cloggy.
Dinas in the Oven
Rites of Spring
I know where the usual suspects - Great Wall, Midsummers, Masters, Indian Face, West Indian, Spreadeagle - go, but can't seem to find out where the other 4 go - just out of curiosity.
Cathedral Graffiti & Dinas in the Oven are based on the arÍte to the left of Great Wall. Dunno about the other two.
Have to say that my curiosity does not spread to ordering the latest guidebook :-)
Hi Gouch; I've erroneously addressed you in the past as "Grouch" - sincere apologies!
Off the top of my head: does Face Mecca take a rising left-to-right line from the mid-height belay on Great Wall to some point where it joins The Indian Face? And possibly includes some other bits beyond my recollection?
According to the topo in the present guidebook Face Mecca does what you say but doesn't quite go so far as to join Indian Face.
Rite of Spring goes more or less horizontally right from the belay of Great Wall as far as Spreadeagle, though I think it rises a bit towards the end.
