Excalibur** HVS 5a
[Excalibur, Carn Les Boel, 2 kb]35m, 2 pitches.

Rockfax Description
A splendid, little-travelled foray into beautiful surroundings. Great positions, rock and climbing make this route a must for those searching for some quiet on busy days. Birds usually nest on the stance at the top of the pinnacle between March and the end of June (do not climb the route during this period). Start from good ledges at the base of the approach abseil.

1) 4b, 14m. Climb onto and then rightwards up the wall to a ledge, poor gear. Continue to a belay at the base of a large corner.
2) 5a, 20m. Climb the steep corner to its end on top of a pinnacle. Climb the steep wall above to finish. © ROCKFAX

Led 1st pitch this time. Unfortunately disturbed a peregrine at the very top of the route, which we hadn't realised was there. Thought it better to carry on and finish as it would have been a much more protracted affair to reverse. Peregrine was fine after we got away. Needless to say STAY AWAY. There is now a temporary bad in place until 30th June.
