Overhanging Corner VS 4c

Adjacent Climbs
<< Overhanging Wall
 
Mark Up Another One >>
A good but awkward climb that does remain wet for a while after rain. Start below the wide, right-slanting crack. 22m. Move up cracks to below the corner proper. Climb the wide crack to an awkward exit onto a sloping ledge and continue up the still-tricky continuation crack above to the top. © ROCKFAX

My 2nd time on this route. Climbed much more comfortably this time, but still a very hard route for me. Found it much harder than Slippery Chute.

Nightmare! Got a cam wedged in a crack so bad it took us an hour to get it out! Terrible end to a challenging route.
manbat - 2nd O/S - 07/Jul/11 with Zach Lawlor

Awkward and bit technical thrutch. Definitely a bit harder than other VSes at Sennen.
stuaart - 2nd O/S - 30/Jun/11 with Thomas Smith

Hard. Large cam was very useful for protecting the corner. Chimney at the top wasn't easy either!

Only fell because I was carrying a massive pack out on the small pulls on the wall to the left of the crack. Had to have the sack hauled to the top to even think about attempting the chimney which i thought was good fun!
cheeky - 2nd dog - 07/Jul/10 with Mark Philipson

did instead of OH wall as it seemed nails. v. tough for grade and chimney quite a thrutch. v.delicate holds lower down on climb. large cams needed. route obvious, but most of sennen seemed confusing for route finding.

Found some good toe-heel jams in the chimney in the upper half.
