A Touch of Class** E2 5c
46m, 3 pitches.

Rockfax Description
An old classic that swaggers up some excellent walls, slabs and overhangs although not always on the best of rock in its upper reaches.
1) 5b, 22m. Start as for The Fall and Decline and climb easily to a ledge. Move right along the ledge to its end before making bold moves up the wall to a peg. Traverse thinly right, peg, to eventually make a step down onto a ramp. Take the ramp to the overhang and stance. Peg and large nuts.
2) 5a, 14m. This pitch has some poor rock. Traverse right into a hanging corner and climb strenuously up it to a thread. Move out right on to a rib and up to tree. Above is another tree and good stance.
3) 5a, 10m. Traverse left with difficulty before stepping down left on to a tiny exposed ledge. The juggy wall bove leads to the top. © ROCKFAX
