Dinkum Wall** E3 5c
[dinkum wall, 3 kb]45m, 2 pitches.

Rockfax Description
This popular route has two contrasting, high quality pitches. The first pitch is an excellent E1 5b in its own right and from the top you can easily walk off to St Govan's.
1) 5b, 20m. Start 5m right of the corner and climb the wall to reach a vague crack. Follow this to a break and traverse right to another crack. A hard move at the top of this gains a short groove which leads to the ledge.
2) 5c, 25m. Climb the leftwards slanting groove behind the stance, to a ledge. Then follow the steep wall and groove above to the top. © ROCKFAX

I led pitch one which was hot and greasy. Adam led second pitch and pulled a large block off at the break onto the belay! I jumped right but the block sliced the ropes in a few places. Watch the spike on the second pitch, it is shit.

Well, kinf of 'clean'. Failed to lead pitch 1 which is meant to be E1 5b. It isn't if you are 5'3". Pitch 2 is fine if you like smooth rock scars, loose flake runners, micro nuts that fall out and clarty juggy walls.

First pitch is bold at start and quite hard for E1 5b (especially when greasy). Top pitch is a bit exciting with a crucial hold/gear placement being a very loose spike, be warned! Top half of pitch is easier but pumpy. Overall would be a classic with cleaner and more solid rock on second pitch...
