|Perseus Direct||E1 5a|
|27m. The 1971 guide book records that this line was originally just an alternative finish to Perseus, going right instead of left just below the crux. It is still worth climbing it this way, as the lower section of the Nick White described route (which is a direct on the first part of Perseus) is quite bold. After leaving Perseus at mid. height, the climbing is 100% independent and very absorbing, well worth doing. Probably the most memorable mantel that you'll do for a while! Fiddly gear above, take small wires & micros. Tidied up March 2015. |
