West Face Direct** E2 5c

Rockfax Description
A series of short and intense pitches which provide some excellent sport. Start at a thin crack-line just right of the corner of Pegasus.
1) 5c, 20m. Climb the difficult, thin crack to an easing and then traverse left to a belay under an overhang.
2) 5b, 8m. Make strenuous moves through the bulging overhangs via cracks and gain a large ledge and belay.
3) 5a, 20m. Above the stance is a slab with a steep wall above it. Move up the slab to a blunt arete in the steep wall. Climb the arete to a good ledge on the right. Step up onto the slab on the left and climb it to a ledge and belay.
4) 4c, 15m. Climb through the overhang above and finish up cracks in the wall. © ROCKFAX

Extremely tough for my grade. Mumtaz led all the pitches. My following clearly showed that it was well above what I can climb now. To avoid disturbing some birds Mumtaz finished on p2 and 3 from Seal Slab, although we ended up passing another nest...
