Penal Servitude** E4 5c

Rockfax Description
Another challenging route, start just to the right of Capital Punishment at a thin ramp-line that leads up and left to the crescent-shape ledge. Climb the ramp-line, which is thin on gear and technically the crux, to a ledge. A tiny crack leads up the sustained wall above but it soon disappears. Make bold and committing moves on generally-positive holds to reach the right-hand end of a ledge. Move right round the rib and up slabbier ground to the top. © ROCKFAX

Best route on the wall in my opinion.

Really enjoyed this, unchalked and a bit dirty so made for an adventure. Thread definitely needs replacing now. Decent gear to be found if the effort is put in.

Class route! interesting gear placements and good consistent 5c climbing throughout. tricky start, awesome face climbing int middle and a cool slab at the top.

Great face climbing. the traverse and finish a bit average. face mad eup for it. love this style of climbing of off vertica; fiddling in shitty gear and pushing on.
