Call to Arms*** E4 5c
[Call to Arms ... the clue is in the name., 3 kb]40m, 2 pitches.

Rockfax Description
The severely overhanging, narrow corner that dominates the main section of the Sanctuary Wall presents a daunting line. Very strenuous. Start directly beneath the corner.
1) 5c, 18m. Climb the corner strenuously, past pegs on the right, to a stance and belay on an exposed ledge.
2) 5c, 10m. Move up to the overhang and pass it on the right. Nuts and an iron spike just below the ridge. © ROCKFAX

Rest point by white tat. Worth noting that what appears from the ground to be muddy grunge is in fact black coral Best approach is to scramble down and traverse in from Long Quarry Point
