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

Abseiled into wet rocks. Had to all escape out on the vs on second. I'll read the guidebook next time!

Interesting varied route, essentialy a slab at the start, then an interesting and delicate traverse along the ledge which is steeper than it looks (crux) then a tricky manleshelf move in the final groove.

Group ascent!! All other routes were wet...which we discovered after we all abseiled in. At least the platform was sunny...

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.
