Rockfax Description
The handsome corner in 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) 5a, 15m. Nip up the crack to below the final overhanging section which is climbed via a move out onto the left wall. © Rockfax

Backed off the direct start! Did it the (easy) way in one pitch.

A good route, nice moves on generally good handholds and an exciting finish through the steepening. The Alpinesque approach ridge scramble was fun and you get to do it in reverse as well!

eduardo 25/Aug/13 Lead O/S

Lead as one pitch so didn't place gear until at the top of the easy starting corner. Fairly pumpy but well protected, felt solid HVS to me (although I was a bit burned out after a week long climbing road/sea trip)

Slight delay to starting this-abseiled down but forgot our climbing ropes! Hamish shunted up the the curtain raiser (HVS) to bring them down! I lead P2, Hamish P1. Good gear. Quite nice climb, lovely location.

I can't believe that the first pitch does merit a technical grade! Maybe I missed something obvious. The second pitch was a little strenuous but wonderful.

Good well protected climbing with positive holds. Second pitch is great although the move under the nose is tricky.

Lead p1. Was a very nice route, climbed at highish tide by abbing straight down to ledges at base of nose. Vs 4c would be a more fair grade

with Dad
bobpilgrem 21/Apr/11 AltLd O/S

Great route- ab straight down nose was fun.Top crack pitch very steep- but good positive holds and good gear. Felt more like VS 4c grade.
