World in Action** E5 6b

Rockfax Description
A peach of a climb. It needs a direct abseil approach to reach a small isolated ledge at the fault-line 5m above the sea, 5m right of the ledge of In a Big Sky (looking in). Climb the bulging arete above (peg and thread) to easier ground (thread), then move slightly left to beneath the orange headwall. Surge up a thin crack, past lots of wires and 2 threads, to a jug. Before the pump wins, finish up the technical shallow groove to a cleaned exit. © ROCKFAX

Really, really, really damp/greasy conditions. Amazing climbing. Bold start, then lots of steep 6b with one jug. Backed up middle thread on abseil. E6.3/F7b?
