|145m, 9 pitches. The Pilgrims Way is a tortuous but amusing route with great positions. It is on the right hand face of the crag starting at the base of the v-groove.
1.) 18m, scramble up to the base of the groove
2.) 30m, traverse horizontally to the right and walk into a large corner with a belay on the right wall
3.) 11m, up diagonally to the left, to a grass ledge with a chockstone
4.) 15m, traverse diagonally left again, exposed but on good footholds to a nose above the chimney, then by an awkward step up into the big corner above, where there is a large belay high on the left.
5.) 13m, traverse along the ledge to the right until a step round an exposed corner leads to a nook.
6.) 5m, up the corner crack to a thread belay on the left.
7.) 12m, scramble up the groove above to a large grassy corner with an assortment of huge blocks.
8.) 20m, step onto the steep slab on the right and ascend diagonally on good pockets to a grass ledge on the right. Continue easily up to the left, above the slab, and gain another grass ledge.
9.) 20m, the obvious easy way to the top is ignored for a long diagonal traverse out to the left, exposed, to the top. |
