Yellow Wall** E2 5b
48m, 2 pitches.

Rockfax Description
A tough and sustained proposition with immaculate climbing and great moves. With careful ropework it can be climbed in one long stellar pitch.
1) 5b, 30m. Climb the wall just right of the large rock pyramid boldly for 6m to a rest and gear. Move up to a shallow groove on the left, which is followed to an overhang. Climb this on the right (tricky) and move up to a sloping ledge.
2) 5b, 20m. Traverse left under an overhang to a sloping shelf. Pull rightwards through the roof above to gain a technical groove leading to the top. © ROCKFAX

P1, got a bit confused at the end of pitch - keep going UP from R of roof to find stance. Enjoyable and soft for E2 we thought, not tough nor sustained. Stunning conditions.

Helen Gibson - 2nd - 20/Jul/14 with dan

A year after backing off the first pitch, lead pitch one and it felt really steady! things coming along nicely. first mountain rock E2

P1 was good, i led P2 and had a mare getting scared on committing moves. Made it eventually.

Cool moves. Ropes were trying to pull me off the first overhang so had to pull out a lot of slack which meant i'd have gone for a nice swing.

Hidden - 2nd - 01/Jul/11

Led P1. Fine climbing with three distinct cruxes and quite run out. Probably made it harder by starting too far right. Missed ab point at top so had long walk back in bare feet.
Andy Clarke - AltLd O/S - 03/Jun/11 with Dale

Andy got the first crux pitch, run out 5b moves Think we went wrong way on first moves making it harder than it should of been. I got second pitch which we both thought was easier, 5b to get into groove. Then at top guide book sez walk off right so we did walked up to top of mountain big 45min walk off in bear feet, adds to adventure. brilliant route.

led P.1 - 3 tricky sections with fiddly gear you have to work is the crux. p.2 has a stiff pull but seems well protected

forgot how fun sooling was! woooo!
Alex Mason - Solo O/S - 21/May/10 with Laura Perry

Done in one really good pitch, just had to extend everything. Fantastic runout but fairly secure climbing, never feels too urgent.
