Seventh Dread - Caveman link up >>
|3 pitches. Although a linking pitch, this inventive section of climbing allows the magnificent lower section of Moonraker to be connected to the wild headwall of Dreadnought. Start at the top of pitch 1 of Moonraker..
1) 5b, 24m. Climb the corner above the stance to its top (as for Moonraker). Move right into a wide crack/chimney, exit this right and move down to a ledge. From the right-hand end of the ledge climb steeply to another good ledge. Finish as for Dreadnought. © ROCKFAX|
A link up pitch giving access to the superbly positioned upper pitch of Dreadnought at a reasonable grade. Start on Moonraker (5a) and on pitch 2 break out right at the top of the corner. Cross the chimney of The Hood and step down to a ledge. Move up from the RHS of this ledge heading for another ledge. Continue up to the very smelly cave stance on Dreadnought and belay from the huge thread. Pitch three is the top pitch of Dreadnought at 5a/b

Led the traverse pitch for the first time today. The climbing is straightforward but the position is really out there. Seconded Ken on my first acquaintance 29/11/08 in icy -3C wind in my Rab Andes duvet!

Huge sea- moonraker party had just been washed off the approach traverse when we arrived. Exposed e1 - climbing good but quality comes from the adventure - or misadventure.
