Alas, Poor Yorick >>
40m, 2 pitches. A fine sustained route that begins just left of the huge groove. 1) 5a, 20m. Gain a small ledge (poor peg). Pass a bulge and follow a crack-line to a small, scary stance, 3m above the fault-line. 2) 5a, 20m. Traverse left under roofs and pull over, as for Prayers for Rain, at a good block. Skirt the roofs above and right, then move back left to a short corner. Swing right then pass some final roofs by another hand traverse rightwards to easier ground. Stake on the upper slope. © ROCKFAX

Very ggod route, did it as a single pitch. Pull through the roof felt like 5b.

First time outside for a few weeks so felt very hard for the grade, very steep and I thought crux was hard 5b/5c.

Ran both pitches together which made for hellish rope drag at the top. Also think I may have gone off route before the break - I went left round the bulge to the break and not right as shown in the topo. Bit run-out but made for a straighter line.

Good solid gear throughout. Need long extenders to avoid too much rope drag, and a radio to speak to your second would be a good idea!

in 1 (lots of extenders needed)
