Plumbline** VS 4c
[The final steep moves on Plumbline., 3 kb]

Rockfax Description
The right-hand line is of similar quality. From the ledge, move up a short wall to gain a sentry-box. Exit left up a crack and then step back right above the niche. From here, head straight up to join Clutch on the ledge and climb this to the top. © ROCKFAX

The moves left out of the sentry box and then the traverse back right look quite improbable at first but go very nicely

Remember to position the ab ropes carefully so that they pull!! 1 x 50m would be just enough but 1 x 60m would be better. Sentry box was greasy and the exit cracks were dripping...decided to leave for another day....very unpleasant ab through the thorns followed by walk (by Phil!) back to the top to retrieve the ropes!!
Pete Nugent - Lead dnf - 30/Oct/11 with Phil Griffiths

Safe as houses but a battle to leave the sentry box. Excellent climbing above.
