Stormy Weather** HVS 5a
[Stormy Weather on a calm day!, 2 kb]

Rockfax Description
A cracking pitch that should not be passed by. Good rock, good protection and some excellent jamming. Start 6m right of the edge of the wall, at the base of a left leading diagonal break.
Follow the diagonal break to a small ledge on the left arete of the wall. Work back rightwards across the wall and stand on a good hold. Jam away up the cracks, finishing up the middle of a trio of cracks in the steep final wall. The vegetation in the cracks at the top does not get in the way of the climbing. Stake belay 5m up the slope below a large block. © ROCKFAX
