30m, 2 pitches. This climb takes a higher and more direct line than Blitzkrieg, using some dubious old gas pipes for protection! Start at a crack line directly below the right hand side of the cave. Climb the crack into the cave at 13m. Belay. From the cave, climb a line slanting left using a undercut crack (small friends) to a resting place; continue directly over a square-cut overhang [A1 - peg for aid ] to escape up a broken groove to a loose top out.
An attempt to avoid pulling on the rusty pegs..... climb a crack through the Square cut overhang right of the aid pegs, reaching another undercut crack, use this to gain the top of the aid section. Felt E2, but I grabbed on to the final peg while clipping it....giving maybe (E2 5b A0) - Ian Jackson, July 2008.
Almost a complet free ascent. Reduced the 2 points of aid too a cheeky french free on the top peg while clipping it. No reason why this shouldn't have a free ascent once i camled down the climbing wasnt that bad. I climbed right of the first peg up a crack reaching a undercutting crack, inn a effort to make the FFA. Increible loose and at around 5b/c. Felt very serious and i recon hard (E2 5b A0) would be better to describe such a situation. IanJackson - Lead - 09/Jul/08 with luketheape
