25m. Start just left of ‘In the Line of Fire’ (left of Supermassive Black Hole) by an obvious and well bolted slanting groove below the hanging ladder. Accessed by scrambling down the Scree from the Peregrine Wall / Twll Mawr Tunnel or by abseil.

Pitch 1 -25m (6b) ‘The Wobbly Ladder Pitch’ - climb the bolted series of grooves to gain a small ledge on the main face level with the bottom of the hanging ladder. From a good foothold it is possible to launch / dyno / fly / fall rightwards to gain the ladder – a unique and fun move! The faint hearted i.e. those refusing to fly can gain the same point by traversing along a series of bore holes. Run up the ladder via 2 bolts to a bolt belay by the tunnel.
Walk out if this is the only pitch you're doing....

Climbed this in hiking boots with a backpack which made the crux tricky. Absolutely mental, the creaking sound of rusty metal had me laughing hysterically. Great fun if climbing super dodgy ladders is your thing.

a good route, a little green. only did the wobbly ladder - wasn't 100% on which line of bolts to take for the second pitch. traversed out on the bore holes like a big girl. will have to go back for the full climb and full experience!
