The Pillar* E5 6a

Rockfax Description
A good introduction to the grade, lacking the big feel of the classic routes of the Main Face, but requiring a deal of care over the placing of protection and handling of the rock, especially towards the finish. Follow the wall past old (and very short) pegs to the roof. Move left then pull over to a good, booming flake. Climb up until you can traverse right to a peg then move up to a bulge (peg). Take a breather then make a hard move right and back left to reach a ledge. Move left into the gully. Tree belay. © ROCKFAX
