|235m, 9 pitches. E3. A massive mountaineering classic which takes in some incredible rock at a reasonable grade. It follows a long sweeping diagonal line through the series of huge honeycomb caves high on the wall. Take a small rack of gear including some foot slings for the aid pitch. Some of the fixed gear is old but there are some new bolts and all the belays are new and equipped for abseil. Start below a diagonal crack.|
1) 6a, 30m. Climb the crack up rightwards then move onto a flake which comes back left. Make a tricky move out right, past a bolt, to a sloping stance.
2) 5+, 15m. The groove above is awkward.
3) A0/5+, 40m. Climb up a groove, then move right onto the wall. Head up here towards a diagonal crack. Aid along this (free at 7b+), then climb up to a stance in the base of the huge caves.
4) 4, 35m. Climb to the top-left corner of the cave and pull round into a large bay. Scramble left and make exposed moves on a short rib around to another cave system and bolt belay. © ROCKFAX
