Rockfax Description
A pleasant way up the front face of the Promontory. Start from a small ledge in a corner on the right side of the prow.

1) 13m. Climb the low-angled corner to its top and then move left and down to a good ledge and belay below the central corner.
2) 4c, 16m. Move back right and take a slim ramp out to the arete and pull around it. Move up the right side of the arete, past a jutting block to finish up cracks. © Rockfax

Done in a single pitch. The traverse was quite tricky. Good route, if a bit broken in sections.

Awkward moving up the ramp. Direct finish up the twin cracks was tough

Pitch 2 a bit hard for 4c. I wouldn't vote against HVS 5a.

Tim was going to lead this route but it began to rain so Tim top roped me out so we could leave.
