Memnon* E2 5c
[High on the 2nd pitch of Memnon, 2 kb]50m, 2 pitches.

Rockfax Description
1) 5b, 25m. Worthwhile. Start below the buttress, on the track, and climb the long open-book corner to the ledge.
2) 5c, 25m. Less worthwhile. Move right and climb a groove, crumbling overhang and wall to the top. © ROCKFAX

First pitch only. Absorbing climbing, good but spaced runners.
Martin Haworth - Lead O/S - 11/Oct/09 with richard white

Nice little route, unlikely looking. tricky to start, then confidence needed on scary loose rock in the top half.
