|The Unforgettable Fire||HVS 5a|
|73m, 4 pitches. 1. 20m 4c Climb the obvious centre crack over the overhang to a large grassy ledge.
2. 20m 5a From the ledge traverse right along the obvious rock ramp. Go around the corner and slightly down to gain a shallow steep groove with awkward moves to a large block ledge. Belay here.(Large Hex).
3. 20m 5a Traverse along a ledge over the main roof. Mid way along, climb up the wall between two parallel cracks. Climb to Burnt Ledge, emerging just right of a large boulder.
4. 13m 4b From Burnt Ledge climb directly up the wall through the obvious weakness in the overhang. |
