Fandango*** none 5c
[Laurence King on Fandango Right Hand (6a), Bowles, 3 kb]Start in the centre of the wall. Move up to the break and from there swing left till a move up can be made to gain the slanting crack in the top overhang. Follow this slightly rightwards to finish with a tricky mantel.

excellent climb although I climbed it clean. I did get help from people below shouting advance and the one bit that stuck made a difference...



just get the left foot on a brake while going over the top mantle!)
