November*** E3 5c
[November, 3 kb]

Rockfax Description
A magnificent, long crack-line that defines the right-hand edge of the Great Wall. Start on the grassy terrace below the crack that bounds the Great Wall on its right.
1) 5a, 25m. The Drainpipe Crack is often wet. This leads to a stance on the ramp on the right. Big cams can help with the unnerving start and provide benefit beyond.
2) 5c, 38m. Move back left and continue up the increasingly-steep crack to a grassy ledge.
3) 5a, 20m. Climb the corner (tricky) then easier cracks to the Eastern Terrace. © ROCKFAX

Stunning climb! No hard moves

P1 + P2 strung together with 60m ropes. A much better climb this way. Fantastic line.

drysori - AltLd - 26/Jul/14

Led P1 which was a bit scary. P2 very hard work with rucsac. P3 crazy contortions.
mes32 - AltLd - 02/Jul/14 with Wilki

CH: P1 JR: P2 +3. Pitch 1 was almost completely dry so it was less of a drainpipe, more a lovely *** VS in it's own right. P2 pumpy with lots of good holds, some nearly rests, no actual rests and did I say pumpy? I did spend a lot of time wiggling gear out though. Impeccable quality route.
chrishedgehog - AltLd O/S - 30/Jun/14 with James Rees

Led P2+3. Battle all the way for me, not fit.. Didn't find it particularly restful at any point. No discernible crux though.
Stig - AltLd O/S - 30/Jun/14 with Chris

Led pitch 2 - brilliant climbing very reminiscent of The Strand at Gogarth, and as good! Slightly harder moves and less opportunities for gear makes this a little harder than the strand though it is still a soft touch for E3...
Duncan Campbell - AltLd O/S - 21/Jun/14 with Hazel Findlay

simon kimber - AltLd O/S - 21/Jun/14 with Will Pettet-Smith

shed_hed - AltLd O/S - 13/Jul/13 with Dougie Swanson-Low

Lead P2, pumpy climbing but good rests and good gear, so not too bad.
HAJ Francis - AltLd O/S - 13/Jul/13

lead 2nd pitch
Lenny - AltLd O/S - 10/Jul/13 with Steve

Great route but could do with seeing some more traffic as very dirty. Lots of lichen on the second pitch but great fun and great position on the wall.
