St. Paul** E3 5c

Rockfax Description
35m. One of the few easier routes on the buttress but still a hard undertaking especially since suffering a rock fall which has left a loose finish. Climb the huge left-facing flake to a ledge. Traverse right until you are below the long corner and cracks. Climb the steep wall (peg) to gain the cracks which lead to the top. Direct start - 6a. Climb direct past a hole to the ledge. © ROCKFAX

FFA. Andy Parkin, Pete O'Donovan 1976. Nearly freed by Ron Fawcett just before. FAA. Dave Peck, Paul Nunn 1960. FA. (Direct Start) Richard Davies (solo) 1987

Pegs all long gone, but creation of Pauliac has retro-bolted the direct start and the crux - gear only required for final crack.
