|54m, 2 pitches. A good route which has recently (Aug 2011) been cleaned and straightened out to give a really worthwhile outing.
Start. At a wet mossy slab about 10 metres left of Ace High. Easily accessed and clear of vegetation.
Pitch 1. 4c Up the wet slab and instead of climbing the vegetated groove of the original line , climb directly up the rib on good clean rock until a step right gains a crack which leads to a niche beside the flat topped pinnacle. Possible belay. From the niche step right onto a slab and climb this moving right to the centre of the slab to finish up a faint groove and a large vegetated ledge (the original line climbed the left hand side of the slab)
Pitch 2 4b Climb diagonally up rightward to a steepening. Pull up then move rightward to the arete and and easy finish
The line as described cleaned and climbed by Mike Lewis and Gerwyn M Jones 22.8.2011|
