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