Obelisks Fly High* HS

Rockfax Description
12m. An exciting climb for the grade. Follow the thin curving crack to a sloping ledge at half height, move left to a good foot ledge on the yellow flecked wall above the overhang. Follow the thin crack above moving left at the top to avoid some large blocks. © ROCKFAX

After a slight crag-finding farce we ended up at Pinfold and this little gem. Nice moves and plenty of gear. Good value for the grade.

A beautiful enjoyable climb within which all moves seemed of similar level. Final climb of the day before rushing off to get ready for work. Safe feeling of exposure on some good strong hand/footholds.

Good little route, and a great position, a sunny day but no other climbers to be seen. My first visit to the Llangollen crags but I will return.
