|Goddess of Gloom||HVS 5a|
|63m. Sustained climbing on a strong line-up the wall left of the Great Cave. Start on a good tidal ledge at the base of a large corner with two overhangs..|
1) 5a, 16m. Climb the corner to below the first overhang and pass it via moves on the right wall. Continue to the overhang at the top of the corner and move right and then up to a small stance..
2) 5a, 17m. Above is a vegetated crack. Climb the wall left of the crack, then trend rightwards across the top of the crack and climb to a stance on a pedestal (this is also the second stance of Moonraker). If clear of vegetation, the crack itself can be climbed, lowering the grade of the pitch to 4b..
3) 5a, 26m. Make some steep moves up left into a groove which leads to a small cave. Move right out of the cave to a tiny ledge and then climb up left to a thin crack with difficulty. Climb the crack and groove above to the top. © ROCKFAX
PITCH 2 CLEANED SEPT 2014 - NO EXCUSES, GET ON IT. Good nut and cam hanging belay at the start of this pitch. It is most pleasant to climb the crack and the wall immediately to its left and head direct to the left side of the pedestal to belay at the top of this pitch.
