Xanadu** E1 5b
[Al Evans leading the first ascent of the top pitch of Xanadu, 1969, 2 kb]42m, 2 pitches.

Rockfax Description
A fine climb but it sees little attention.
1) 4c, 20m. From part way up Crewcut, follow the ledge out right to reach the large corner and climb to the ledge above.
2) 5b, 22m. The main angle gives an excellent pitch when clean, though it is often grassy, to just below the top. Finish by a wild hand-traverse out to the right arete. © ROCKFAX

Top crack was chocked with mud and grass so escaped up the face to the left, which (I think) is Myolympus HVS 5b
