Penamnen Groove* E1 5b
[About to do battle!, 3 kb]

Rockfax Description
Something of a good old thrutch is required to climb this route. Start below a deep corner.
1) 4c, 12m. Climb the left wall of the corner until you can reach right to the grassy ledge. Belay on the right of this below the impending crack/groove.
2) 5b, 22m. Move up to the corner and let the battle commence. At the roof, move left and continue on in the same vein. Belay at the top usually in a somewhat exhausted state. © ROCKFAX
