Delusor* VS 4c

Adjacent Climbs
<< Conclusor
Hades >>
44m, 2 pitches. 1) 5a, 12m. Make a hard (5b?) first move to gain a left-slanting crack/ramp-line then continue to a grassy landing onto a stance under a bulge. Original Start, VS 4c - Start up Conclusor then traverse diagonally right to the stance. Very scruffy now, but it avoids that first move. 2) 4c, 30m. Climb the groove above to a bulge. Pass this and climb the continuation groove, making good use of its right wall, to join and finish up the final section of Medusa. © ROCKFAX

Clare was on this by accident instead of being on P1 of Medusa. She then traversed back to Medusa.

In one pitch.The 5a RH start
Jim Slater - Lead O/S - 03/Aug/14 with Maia

Hard first few moves then it's a VS cruise to the top. Pleasant moves pulling past the bulge on pitch 2, on massive holds but in a nice position. I love this place!

first moves were fun, then the climbing was sporadic nice rock with lots of grassy ledges.

Lead first pitch of direct start after dad had placed a couple of pieces of gear in but failed to get any further. One unnecessary rest on the rope and much scrambling up shrubbery (other posters identify as an elderflower bush) led to belay point. Tried to escape off left as second pitch looking too green but no path at the top! Ended up abseiling off block.

Direct start, basically 5b, with an unpleasant pull onto belay ledge via an elderflower bush!
