Rosary * HS 4b
[Rosary, 3 kb]30m. ** Suffered a rockfall in 2014 - No longer climbable **

Start behind a small pinnacle and climb to a good ledge. Climb the crack on the right for 2m before traversing left and climbing to another ledge. Move along this and finish up a slab.

This is a very nice climb, quite juggy but there are some technical moves in places, be careful when topping out as the ledge is very crumbly

In rain. Top out was horrible, loads of loose rock. Afterwards realised meant to go left (as looking at it) rather than mantelling straight up into loose stuff!

A bit wierd; lots of loose rock on the route. I've done it a couple of times before and it's always been solid, not sure if I'd want to repeat it again now though. Take care if attempting.

Really nice route. We did the high-tide start and went straight up the diagonal cracks rather than starting up the middle. HS not VS.

The top of this route is very loose - a large TV sized block came off and I took a significant fall. Had to leave two pieces of gear. Take care if climbing this route.
