The Fall and Decline** E3 5c
37m, 2 pitches.

Rockfax Description
The left arching line through the overhangs is a fine route featuring strenous climbing and good protection.
1) 5c, 25m. Take the short wall into the main flake line. Climb this to the overhangs and traverse left, peg, and then pull into a groove with difficulty. Move up and then out right on to an arete, peg, and climb this and a wall to a stance.
2) 5a, 12m. The overhang above the satnce to easier ground. © ROCKFAX

P1 is great, crux felt like the moves past first peg. P2 is now overshadowed by teetering loose blocks, following a recent large rockfall. Take care, and keep left after pulling through the bulge.
