|Race for the Oasis||E5 6a|
|65m, 3 pitches. A wandering outing but with good pitches. Start at the very right-hand side of the low roof.|
1) 6a, 25m. Gain a chimney and traverse left for 8m (peg under the strip roof) then move up to a peg below another roof. Swing out to a bottomless small groove and climb its left-hand side via a fingery rib before trending right to join Tudor Rose. Hanging belay at the right-hand end of a narrow roof.
2) 5b, 10m. Move left for 3m and climb a shallow groove. At the top of this traverse left again, and down, to the recessed belay on Dougal the Great.
3) 5c, 30m. Head diagonally rightwards to the fault-line and swing along to a good ledge (peg). From the left-hand side reach a peg, step left and move boldly up the wall to good finishing holds. Exit right then left up an easy groove. © ROCKFAX
