Ultimate Eliminate Direct** E3 5c
[Eyeing up the crux on The Ultimate Eliminate Direct (E3 5c), 3 kb]45m, 2 pitches. An improved direct version of the original route to give a sustained climb of great character and an airy climax. It has 4 metres of new climbing on the arete. Top end E3.
P1 5c. Climb CCSD and step left onto the tree on CC Direct. Make tenuous moves up the arete ending at good holds and a small wire on the microgranite band. Further gear can be arranged in Gideon. Bear R to top out on the huge bollard.
P2 5b. Climb the wall right of the chimney of CCD. Near the top use the RH arête to make a reachy move onto the final headwall in a magnificent position.
