|Groove of Shadows||E5 6a/b|
|The steep diagonal line underneath Parnell’s route Heavy Blood and Pounding Heart - Western Groove. A route on which the racing ‘Hare’ may fall foul of the slow but clever ‘Tortoise’. A bit of a shimmy-shammy and a whisker-frisker leads briskly into the giant break of the route formerly known as Resounding Fart, at which point wind may be broken prodigously. Climb in a generally upwards direction over the roof into the hanging groove above Resounding Fart. After the tricky roof the groove gives straightforward climbing. Belay well back. |
