|38m, 2 pitches. |
A tremendous pitch when clean, that takes on a thin crack-system up the impressive hanging wall at the back of the zawn. The last 8m is on poor rock and it is advisable to pre-place a rope down this section. Start under the large overhang at the base of the wall.1) 6a, 38m. Take the steep wall to the overhang and move up into the equally-steep groove on the right. Exit the groove at its top, moving out left to the base of the wall and less-steep ground. Climb to a wide horizontal break, move right and climb a crack to another wide horizontal break. Move up to a tiny triangular ledge and then go left to a thin crack and follow this to a ledge, sustained. Belay on pre-placed rope. 2) 8m. Either abseil off, or aid out on the rope with care. © ROCKFAX
