Rake's Progress >>
|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|
