The Sump* D
[The Sump, 3 kb]27m, 2 pitches.

Rockfax Description
A pleasant route for the grade. It takes the V-groove feature that rises up rightwards across Ramp F. Start below the left-hand end of the ramp.
1) 15m. Move up and step steeply right into the V-groove/ramp. Follow this up to a nice belay in a nook above a cave (aka 'the Sump').
2) 12m. A long stride right across the Sump leads to a slab and then onto a small groove near the right edge of the buttress. From the top of the groove you can find a belay, and then make another short pitch off the top to reach the descent gully. © ROCKFAX
