Lateral Thinking >>
|An exciting outing that covers the entire main face of Devil's Rock.
Start up P1 of Vineyard to tree belay.
Traverse R around arete (climbed by Leviathan) and continue across Vala and onto Central Groove. Downclimb Central Groove to the thread belay.
Traverse R across the blank wall to a small ledge on the arete (dodgy peg here-back it up). The peg has now gone, its remains are visible. make a rising traverse R across irregularly traveled ground until the bollard belay of Gideon in reached (this is the crux pitch).
From here move R into the V-groove of Climbers Club, and then out again on big hold to the tree belay of Route B.
Continue up Route B to finish at the highest point of Devil's Rock.|

Very Nice, Did p1,p3,p5. The 5a Pitch was spot on, didnt think it was harder, confidence and ability to be in precarious places helps.
