|Hot Gossip||E5 6a|
|63m, 3 pitches. A complex line, finding its way through some unlikely territory, but with good climbing. Start under the left-hand of a pair of black loose-looking grooves at the cliff base.|
1) 6a, 21m. Climb into (6b if you don't find the hidden jug) and up the loose black groove below the right-hand end of the Castellan cave to a ledge below the main cave base.
2) 6a, 21m. Step right and pull up past a hanging block. Continue through the bulge to gain the middle of three grooves and climb this to the Laurin stance.
3) 5c, 21m. Climb delicately leftwards then up to a fine groove (peg), as for Brown Donkeys. © ROCKFAX
