Subsidiary Groove* E1 5b
A good route with a tough final-pitch. 1) 4a, 26m. Follow Main Wall to the first stance, then move across to belay at the base of the chimney/groove on the right. 2) 4b, 15m. Climb the groove to meet Main Wall then step right to belay. 3) 5a, 40m. Climb a crack above, on dodgy rock, to another junction with Main Wall. Make a diagonal traverse left for 6m up a steep wall, then head back right up a gangway to a rest in a corner. Climb the steep wall above. 4) 4c, 15m. Climb the groove to the overhang. Teeter over poor rock on the right to gain a corner, then romp up the easy slab on the right to a good stance and belay. 5) 5b, 15m. This short tough pitch follows the easy crack on the left of the slab to the steep corner. Climb this (crux). Scramble off. © ROCKFAX
