Diglyph* HVS 5b

Rockfax Description
A good route that allows some of the aura of the Great Wall to be experienced at an amenable grade. Start just left of the base of the impressive Great Wall, below the chimney.
1) 4a, 15m. As for Chimney Route.
2) 5b, 20m. Move right to a crack and climb this to a small ledge in a short corner. Continue on past a steep section (peg) and continue to a ledge. Belay on the right.
3) 4c, 25m. Climb up to the wide groove above which leads to a large flake. Escape out right onto a steep wall to gain the terrace. © ROCKFAX

Made an absolute meal of the crux pitch, which Tom proceeded to cruise with no chalk or nut key! Threw in the chimney at the top for good measure. Fantastic route.
