Mordaunt*** E2 5b
60m, 4 pitches.

Rockfax Description
A magnificent girdle covering impressive territory at a sustained but amenable grade. The best of its genre on grit!
1) 5b, 28m. Follow Sepulchrave to the end of its traverse and continue to Suicide Wall. Follow the same line then swing down to join Requiem above its crux and take the wide crack around the arete to a belay on the ledge on Five Finger Exercise.
2) 5b, 10m. Mantel down off the ledge then reverse Tiger Traverse to a stance in Owl Gully.
3) 5b, 10m. From the gully follow the crack of Renaissance but continue out to the arete and a move up to small stance.
4) 5b, 12m. Traverse below the roof to round the arete and continue into Weston's Chimney - the logical line, or finish up Boot Hill for a better finale © ROCKFAX

Just the first 2 pitches before rain overcame us, must go back... 1st pitch is worth *** on its own. Reversing the Tiger traverse was hard!
Graeme Hammond - AltLd - 25/Oct/14 with Jake Young

lead pitch 2, found it hard reversing tiger traverse (green/scittily) fell off this pitch but started the traverse again from the hands off rest. had to abandon the rest of the route due to rain.
Jake Young - AltLd - 25/Oct/14 with Graeme Hammond

Wicked route. I'd give the pitch grades 5c, 5c, 5b, 5b.

Great climbing all the way. Fine (&photogenic) stringing p2 & 3 together.Best of genre on grit?
Rich Kirby - AltLd O/S - 06/Oct/12 with Manbeast

Lead my 2 pitches cleanly but couldn't remove cams single handedly when seconding. Pitch 2 seemed quite hard for 5b. What a great climb though, all in a superb situation.
thrutch - AltLd - 26/Sep/10 with Sven

Fell off reversing the Tiger Traverse pitch. Very hard for 5b or I am going very badly (probably the latter!). First 2 pitches seem much harder than last 2 even though all get the same grade.
