Ximenes*** E2 5c
36m, 2 pitches. A classic crack-line which is sustained, athletic and protectable all the way. Start 10m right of the big corner below the line. 1) 5c, 18m. Climb the crack and strenuously gain an overhanging corner which leads to the fault-line. 2) 5b, 18m. Pull through the roof above and move up to another one. Step right and over the roof then continue up the right-hand of two grooves. At the top step left to an exit scramble. © ROCKFAX

Seconded first pitch - jealous of the lead I confess, but one must be gracious! Fantastic pitch. Really good fun. Topping out in the rain proved the crux, as usual...
