Senior's Route D
[The Trouble with Lichen., 4 kb]A fabulous line and one of Sennen's best pitches at the grade. Start at the left end of the platform. 25m. Climb the narrow corner/groove that has a black mottled left wall all the way to the top. © ROCKFAX
Climb the wider (left hand) gangway to the large legde above Monday Face (belay possible). Finish up the corner to the right. Stays really wet in the middle section even after a dry day, but still a pleasant climb.

the routes we wanted to climb were to damp so we climbed this so that we could set up a top rope on a drier though harder area of the crag,not a bad little route as it turns out.
