Rockfax DescriptionAlthough unlikely to become a popular route in its current incarnation, the line remains one of the West Country's most audacious - crossing the Vault Wall from left to right. Start at a right-trending ramp left of the central gash of the vault itself..1) 4c, 24m. Climb the ramp and move up a small corner at its top before traversing left to the end of the overhang above. Move up to a belay on the slab..2) 5c, 20m. Ascend to the right-hand corner of the slab, move right and up through the overhang to a stance and belay. This pitch used to have a peg for protection on the hard move through the overhang and was graded at E2/3 with this in place..3) 5b, 50m. Traverse into the massive corner on the right (The Vault). Climb up a short distance and then move right onto a small slab. Follow the slab right to a big flake and ascend this to a ledge, go right to a thin crack and take this to the finishing slabs. Follow the slabs rightwards to finish at the abseil point. © ROCKFAX
