Socket Wall >>
The centre of the pock-marked wall is high in the grade and very sustained. As a consequence it feels a lot bigger than it looks. Start under a handrail at 4m below the middle of the wall. 14m. Heave up to good holds on the handrail, step left and climb the pock-marked wall and thin crack to the top. © ROCKFAX
