Alex of Gowla** E1 5b

Rockfax Description
A very good pitch on sound rock and with reliable protection. Start at a spike belay on a ledge at the base of the corner-line.
Climb the corner to the large roof at 30m. Traverse right below the roof and pull into the groove on its right. Follow the groove to the top. © ROCKFAX

Lots of faff on the belay ledge. Good 3 dimensional climbing, some good positive holds if you can find them.

Superb route. Steady HVS climbing but crux moves E1 5b if you are tall E2 5c if you are not!
